Ship Facts: Celebrity Equinox Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Equinox Deck Plans
Great Ship, but do private tours
We loved almost everything about the Equinox, from the ease of boarding, to our huge veranda stateroom, the largest we have ever had on any cruise. We were in 9353, aft in a great room. Very quiet, good views from balcny, great closet space but limited drawer space. Noticed that even inside cabins were almost as large as the veranda cabins, so wouldn't be afraid to book inside on future cruise. Unfortunately, our butler seemed to lack any language skills, so whatever we asked of her always got messed up or only partially completed.

The dining optionw were good, except I still get annoyed with so many ships now forcing a cruiser to pay extra to eat in the specialty dining rooms. we eat out at fine restaurants at home, I don't feel we should have to pay $30.00 plus wine to eat while at sea. The main dining room is lovely, service is excellent, and the variety is very good, with many high end types of dining options on the menu each night. I was surprised to find escargot on their everyday menu! The French onion soup is fabulous, don't miss it. Deserts while presented well, seem to have little taste. the last night I had the chocolate lava cake, a favorite dessert of mine, that I seldom skip when I see it offered. It was a huge disappointment. Spongy cake and little "lava".

We found the entertainment to be excellent. the options ranged from the usual song and dance variety shows, to Circe du soleil acts, classical pianists,string quartets, A Cappella song quartets, jazz bands, guitarists, to superb speakers who kept us spellbound. Seemed like there was always something to listen to and someplace to go.
