Wonderful but exhausted: Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by susan legg
Overall Member Rating
Wonderful but exhausted
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Overall we found the ship, the food and bars excellent. We did not really go to any shows to so cannot comment. Most of the live bands however were excellent and there was a good cross range of music. The shops on board had a good selection of clothes and jewellery and the duty free was very competitive, The casino was standard slots and tables but again we did not really use. The food and restaurants were outstanding and we did dine in the Tuscan Grill one night which was lovely. Most people dressed for the formal evenings which again was lovely. The officers were very visible and the captain was often seen. The ship was very clean and well kept.
The negatives. They were always trying to take your photo around the ship and also getting on and off but this was at a price and I thought it was expensive. The internet was also an issue and I heard a lot of complaints about the cost and speed. Unless you logged out properly you could easily run up a large bill. There were packages available but were hundreds of dollars. Most hotels now do not charge for internet. When I booked I was asked if it was a special occasion and I told them it was for a 70th birthday and the was acknowledged on the booking form. As it was on the last night in dinner I was expecting something ie cake or glass of champagne but nothing. It seems strange to ask for special occasions and then not do anything. As it was the last night I did not complain at the time. On the 9th night of the cruise I developed a sore throat which turned into a heavy cold and hacking cough. My husband developed the same 1 night later than me and when we were disembarking there were a lot of people sneezing and coughing. Less
