Celebrity Equinox March 15-25th: A balanced review
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Our first two days were at sea, which were relaxing. Of course, getting a sun lounger anywhere near the pool is near impossible, as many people think their towels and magazines deserve a chair more than other passengers do. The poolside band was very good but they played for 1 1/2 hrs a day. The a Capella group played in 15 minute increments, once or twice by the pool during the day.The "DJ" was sub par. Otherwise it's very quiet by the pool; too quiet. We would have really enjoyed some Caribbean steel drum music around the pool. We also would have enjoyed seeing some tables and chairs outside in the pool area where we could play cards. We really enjoyed the tables/chairs on Princess. Bar service was very good in all the common areas. One thing we miss on this ship is the outdoor movie screen. It's so fun to snuggle up at night and watch a good movie under the stars, refreshed by the sea air. I know they show movies inside, but we wanted to enjoy the warm weather as much as possible.
Our room steward was Rosario and he was excellent. He was efficient, fun and kind. We enjoyed him very much and he took good care of us. We had a balcony cabin and it was quite nice. No problem with storage. No extra noise, very close to the elevators. Just perfect for us. One thing we really miss on Celebrity is coin operated laundry and an ironing board for passenger use.
The ship was clean and in good repair. The decor is contemporary and pretty but not overdone.
Overall, this cruise was wonderful, one of our best ever. Less
Cabin review: 2B7198 Deluxe Veranda
Our cabin was 7198. It was quiet, close to the elevators. There is a lifeboat slightly to the right, 2 decks below the balcony but it does not effect the view at all. Two decks above the theater, but no sound noticed in the cabin. there was enough storage space. We slid our empty luggage under the bed. The cabin is set up with the bed closest to the balcony, offering a nice view.Read All Deluxe Veranda (2B) Reviews >>
