Elated with Equinox
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We have traveled on many cruise ships with many cruise lines and have been on several Celebrity ships but we have both agreed that our recent trip from March 29,2010 to April 9, 2010 on the Equinox was fabulous.
We feel in love with the ship and all that it had to offer. Our cabin was lovely and we enjoyed our mornings sitting on the veranda and having our coffee while we sailed on the very blue Caribbean. Our cabin steward(Miguel) was wonderful and did not miss a thing including making sure we had everything we needed especially my ice water.
Our dinner companions at our table came from England, Canada and Florida. We had a lot of interesting conversations spending longer than each night having our dinner at the 6:00 seating. Our table was 344 and our waiter Gary never rushed us. The food was very good most nights and though we did eat at the Tuscan grill and thoroughly enjoyed every morsel.
Our ship stopped at Grand Cayman, Cartagena, Panama,Costa Rica, More Roatan, & Mexico. The few trips we took from the ship were okay but the one we took in Roatan was not described correctly. They did not say that the trip to the ship wreck was going to entail jumping off the boat and swimming back to shore this was a problem for some.
Most of the shows on board were very good, we especial like the performance by the ships cast, the dancers were fantastic. The only really bad night was when they had a singer named Travis, who thought he could impersonated other singer. Totally wrong, really bad and so was the ventriloquist the last time he preformed.
Though we traveled on a full ship that had 355 children and over 45 countries represented you would only know that when we had to disembark the ship. That is something that Celebrity needs to improve upon. It is the time it takes getting to your luggage that was unorganized. We loved the ship so much we book another cruise for June, 2010 on the Eclipse to the Baltic. Great work Celebrity we look forward many more cruises with you Less

Cabin review: con1176
We were on Deck 10 in the Concierge class. Our Cabin Stewart was great the room was very nice with a great Veranda, Closet space was good but the draw space was not sufficient. There were only 5 draws. They should put the safe back in the closet and add two more draws. Having to climb up on the bed to get into the additional storage space is not practical and inconvenient. I can't imagine what an other couple would have done. The hallway( to the room)carpet seemed to have an odor but that was not true any where else on the ship.
