New Years Ultimate Caribbean: Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by jeffnjan
Overall Member Rating
New Years Ultimate Caribbean
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The embarkation was very smooth and quick, we flew in to Ft. Lauderdale early so we had about a twenty minute wait to board the ship. Once on board we had to wait for our room to be ready but expected that so we had lunch and checked out some of the ship.
Our stateroom was one that was in the bump out area near the elevators and had a balcony. Great location near the game room, we never had to walk down any of the long hallways to our room. Our room attendant did a fabulous job, he left us fresh wine glasses at all times which was great because we carried 4 bottles on and enjoyed a glass of wine on our balcony as we sailed away from most of the ports.
We did the select dining and as always we loved doing it at our schedule. The food was a little better than average but we have had better on other cruise ships and other lines. We dined in the Tuscany Grill (Italian More Steak)and it was very, very good as expected since it does come with a price.
The entertainment was about what is found on most cruises these days and was not greatly attended by many cruisers. We only went to about a third of the shows ourselves. I think people are getting board with average entertainment.
We liked the bar at the back of the ship on deck 14, great place to relax.
The ship is in great shape and the staff was friendly and helpful, overall a very good cruise. Less
Cabin review: 1B9272 Deluxe Veranda
Our cabin was just past the game room and was good because we never had to walk down any long hallways. The balcony was great and we liked having the bed next to the sliding doors. The closets are small and hard to get to, not much storage either. Overall very good, mid ship and easy to get to everything.Read All Deluxe Veranda (1B) Reviews >>
