Ship Facts: Celebrity Equinox Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Celebrity Equinox Deck Plans
Beautiful Ship, Great crew, Great passengers!!
We got to Fort Lauderdale a day early. Stayed at the Hilton at the marina. We liked the view of the cruise ships from our room. Other than that it was nothing special.

Embarking and debarking were very smooth.

The ship was beautiful. It didn't feel crowded. Nice glass elevators.

The crew members were polite and always offered a friendly greeting.

One of the most important aspects of our experience was the fellow passengers

we shared the ship with for 11 nights. We were very happy to cruise with such nice people! The passengers on this cruise were refined, polite, friendly, and a pleasure to cruise with. I'm guessing the average age was about 60. At one to the ports we shared with another ship it was very easy to tell the our passengers from theirs. This may sound snobby, but when you spend your hard earned cash, you'd rather be with your peer group, than "joe 6 pack" and the wild bunch.

The activities were fun. We enjoyed karaoke with Michelle, Rachel and Jackie. They were lots of fun. We had fun at bingo, The casino was great. Kremi made everyone feel welcome at the poker tables. I played $5 dollar blackjack and the dealers were friendly and helpful. My wife had fun on the penny slot machines. The fitness center was very good. Stacy and Nick were great instructors. We enjoyed their classes. The pools were small,but we always found a chair.

We prepaid all of our tips. I guess that qualified us for select dining.

Even thought we were in Aqua class, they saved a table for us in the main dining room. The food and the service was great everywhere we eat. Once in Silhouette, Once in Silk Harvest, one night in the Buffet, Three nights at Tuscon Grill(the best food), the rest at Blu. We had room service every day. It was perfect.

House keeping was good. The entertainment was good.

We really appreciated all the wonderful music on the ship. The music helps set Celebrity apart from the loud, frat house,party ship atmosphere of some of the other cruise lines. Thank you Celebrity for a more tasteful and elegant environment.

No complaints about anything on the ship. We had a wonderful time.

The next time we cruise it will be with Celebrity!
