Wonderful escape from winter

Sail Date: February 2013
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

We've cruised with Celebrity 7 times, each a different experience. This time on Equinox didn't disappoint.

Embarkation was an absolute zoo. All the hotels showed up at the same time creating a real traffic jam of people. However, once we received our sea pass everything went smoothly & we were soon on board with mimosas in hand.

Food & service in MDR was exceptional, as was Ocean Cafe. Bistro on 5, food was good, service was very lacking. We didn't try any of the specialty restaurants - didn't see the need.

Marvelous state room attendant, Winston. Excellent waiter & assistant - Emrah & Ali. Stupendous wine sommelier, Murak.

We really enjoyed the elite cocktail hour with a wonderful Captains Club hostess, Donna. Also the elite breakfast in Tuscan Grille. Do wish that the view fromTuscanGrille was in the MDR, tho the wine bottle view was interesting.

The production shows were wonderful, North by Northwest group were absolutely fantastic. More The Corning glass show was superb

Disembarking was a breeze! We took the Everglades airboat tour as our flight didn't depart until after 4. Great tour - recommend it to all levels of activity.

Met some awesome friends on cruse critic, you all know who you are!

We're waiting for new itineraries to book our next adventure. Less
