Exceptional Cruise: Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by Beachb

Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Only negative comment: I do agree with one reviewer who noted the arrogant bartender at the Martini Bar, usually my favorite hangout. I actually asked which vodkas were under the Classic Beverage package and he said it included Ketel One. I ordered a Ketel One martini and he presented me with a bill for $13. Seems that if you have Ketel One on the rocks, it is included but if you get it "up" as a martini it is not! He said any martini - even with the cheapest vodka or gin - costs $11+svc, and is therefore off the Beverage Pkg. But he said it like I was stupid for not knowing the technicality. That was the last time I visited that bar. Having said that this jerk was the total exception. I guess Divas come in all sorts!
EVERY OTHER bartender and waiter on the ship was superb, friendly and professional. Of special note are Sebastian, the bar server from Denmark, and bartenders Devon and Sylvia. Look them up and say Hi!
Warning: If you do the itinerary that includes Colombia and Panama, the passport and Customs process at debarkation is horrendous! What normally is a 15 minute exit process took us almost two hours of standing in lines. Celebrity should have warned us more clearly, but then nobody would have gotten off the ship so I get it. Less

Had an Accessible Cabin in Aqua class. Best organized bathroom I have found on any ship. The room was spacious and easy to maneuver with mobility issues.
