Ship Facts: Celebrity Equinox Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Equinox Deck Plans
CHRISTMAS ON BOARD CELEBRITY EQUINOX

This is our second cruise with Celebrity after cruising with them to Alaska on Century in 2012, although we are established cruisers with other cruise lines over the past 18 years.

We very much enjoyed the cruise aboard this modern ship stopping at some interesting islands including St Kitts, where we took the Sugar Train excursion around this scenic coastline.Sadly it rained heavily on Christmas Day when we arrived at Barbados preventing us heading for the beach that day. Although the ship was decorated beautifully for our Christmas cruise, disappointingly, Christmas Day was a little flat with no festive Christmas entertainment like a panto. In common with our previous cruises, we expected a small gift from the cruise line and at least a decorated dining room table with crackers etc but to no avail. However, the kids were looked after on their special day.

We had an excellent balcony stateroom which accommodated a comfortable sofa bed for our teenage daughter. Could have done with more drawer space as we had to rely on the overhead lockers. Our cabin steward served us well keeping the stateroom clean and hygienic. Great not to be overlooked on the balcony.

Food in both the main dining room and buffet was of excellent quality and selection. Breakfast service in the dining room was slow, so we kept to the buffet where tables were always available. When ordering medium cooked meat dishes in the dining room, they always presented it rare which is not to everyone's taste.The same problem occurred in the Murano speciality dining option when we could not even slice our duck that was tough and chewy and disappointingly had to be sent back, causing knock on service delays at the table. The catering staff presented a wonderful brunch on Christmas Day with great choices including chocolate fountains to indulge!
