Ship Facts: Celebrity Equinox Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Equinox Deck Plans
Celebrity Equinox 12 Night Western Mediterranean Cruise

This was the best cruise we have taken of our 11 cruises. Part of this comes from being the longest cruise (12 nights) and other part from being in the Mediterranean. As our 2nd Celebrity cruise (1st one was Summit to Bermuda), we found the staff to be very polite and willing to go out of there way to please.

We tried all the specialty restaurants - Tuscan Grill twice. We liked each them for their individual characteristics, but the expense for a family of 4 was such that we would not do it again. Keep in mind we ate in Blu every night so we were use to the food being cooked to order and Blu has essentially the same view.

We booked two AquaSpa cabins (1551/1549) and were able to open the balcony door between the two rooms. In part we booked the room guarantees it assured us both cabins would be on same floor. Feel the extras with AquaSpa 12 night are worth a couple extra hundred per passenger.

The ship was great in terms of things to do, comparable to Royal Caribbean & Princess but less than Disney. Glass Blowing seems like a great idea, but not as exciting once for us once we saw the show. There always seemed to be many passengers watching the show.

The entertainment shows were disappointing. We liked a few of shows but not most. There were very few shows after the main show that were of any interest. Made it easy to go to bed early and get up for excursions.

I highly recommend you book excursions. We did not realize that excursions booked through cruise get to do everything first and all the ports you needed some transportation to get to something of interest.

No promenade around ship, just partial on deck 5 with life boats obstructing most the view, and missed shuffle board.
