Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by starette: WOW
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)
WOW - this was our first cruise on Celebrity Equinox. Impressed by quick check-in and friendly reception upon arrival. Greeted with champagne and a smile! Our stateroom was beyond expectations. Lots of room and most of all comfortable! Beds are the most luxurious we have slept in including hotels around the world. Staff very friendly and attentive expecially in dining rooms, restaurants and stateroom assistants. Waiters went out of their way to please us.
The ship is bright, clean and run very efficiently.
On the down side...the wine list is expensive!
Excursions run by Celebrity were top-notched and ran very smoothly, especially on days like visits to the pyramids in Cairo -1200 persons left the ship that morning for the day. Planning to get all on buses went very well.
Food is excellent in dining room but Ocean View Cafe food could be hotter.
We will cruise with Celebrity again. Less

Cabin review: 2B7201 Deluxe Veranda 2B
Good location, port side therefore great views when arriving at ports. Great beds and balcony was adequate. Well furnished room and we found that we had enough closet space and drawer space as well.Read All Deluxe Veranda 2B (2B) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
Second day in Alexandria, we took a tour to Cairo and the Pyramids in Giza. This is worthwhile and all that we've read about. Those pyramids are a sight and so is the sphinx. Well worth the long drive.
If on a day trip, a tour of the city is a must. Must see: Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Forum, Vatican and St. Peters.
