Venice to Istanbul on Equinox - a wonderful cruise
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Our stateroom was an ocean view at the front of the ship, which was very spacious and well appointed.
The ship itself was beautiful, and in excellent condition. We enjoyed the lawn area, and sailed away each night from the sunset bar which gave us great views. We stayed on board a couple of days while in port, as we had recently visited those ports on our holiday, and enjoyed the leisure areas, such as the Solarium, and the Persian Garden.
We ate More each night in the Main dining room, the food was excellent, and we did not think it necessary to visit the speciality dining venues during the 7 nights. Food was also very good in the Ocean View buffet, we were happy to eat there for breakfast and lunch, as there were so many choices, catering to all tastes and requirements.
We found the entertainment to be of a high standard; Josh the cruise director was very friendly and competent, the hosted themed parties were great fun, and the shows excellent, especially the last show featuring the acrobatic dancers, whichever thought was world class.
The service in all areas was very good, with only a couple of exceptions, and they were minor. Overall Celebrity offered a fantastic cruise experience on this ship, and with this itinerary.
In summary, we had no complaints, and neither did our friends who were first time cruisers. We are recommending it to all our friends. Less
