Ultimate Caribbean Cruise: Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by SJandSinFolsom
Overall Member Rating
Ultimate Caribbean Cruise
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
-The Equinox is a beautiful ship. Modern decor. I liked that there was no smoking on the inside of the ship, however I felt I always smelled smoke around the casino, but it wasn't overwhelming. The other part of the ship that I wished were different was the pool deck area. The only seating they had was loungers. I'm not a big "lay out by the pool" More person and would have enjoyed a table to sit at to enjoy the area and a drink.
-Food - we opted for select dining which I really enjoyed. We never made reservations and always got a table whenever we showed up. The food was good in the Silhouette dining room but I got tired of it towards the end of the cruise. I felt the only light dishes they had on the menu were fish and I'm not a big fish eater. The one place on the ship that I hated was the Oceanview cafe (buffet). There were certain times that it was the only place to get a meal. There is no flow, people will walk into you and run you down. I felt the food was always cold. I never once got hot hashbrowns from the breakfast buffet.
The entertainment was ok, no better or worse than other lines that I've been on. I felt they could have done better with daytime activities on sea days.
-Last comments - this was my fourth cruise and the first time I experienced a lot of movement and got sea sick. Laying in bed was the only thing that kept me from being sick. The disembarkation process was horrendous. Not sure if it was Celebrity's doing or Port of Everglades. We waited in line for immigration for 1hr. Having said that, we made it to the airport in plenty of time for our flight home. Less
Cabin review: SV7364 Sunset Veranda
Our room was adequate. The bathroom is the first thing you come across when walking in the door. The shower was adequate and they provide you with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap. The next thing is the closet. There could have been more hangers but we managed. The sofa is next with a little desk/makeup station, mini bar and 5 drawers for storage across from it. The blowdryers aren't very strong. The bed was by the window, it was comfortable. They always call them queen beds but I feel they are bigger than queen beds. My husband and I have no problems with space on their beds and we usually sleep on a king. The balcony on this room is a little larger than most. The balcony isn't covered but the way they are staggered on the back of the ship lends itself to privacy. The only way I could see my neighbors to the side or above was to stand at the rail.Read All Sunset Veranda (SV) Reviews >>
