Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by 1865JFK: Pros & Cons
Overall Member Rating
Pros & Cons
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Ship was beautiful, staff very friendly & accommodating. I use a walker & found it difficult to open & keep door open to enter cabin over the sill. Inside the cabin I had to fold the walker (3 wheels) & store it behind the drapes as the passageway was very narrow.
Purposely taking late dining to relax after going ashore, we found that most shows were changed to have the late sitting passengers see the show while the early seating passengers ate. Therefore, we missed most of the shows.
Another reminder for all- If you have booked to take a cruise on a new ship that is coming into port for the first time, as was the Equinox (this year it will be the Silhouette), don't rush to get to the ship early as we had to hang around until 2:00 PM in order to board as the Coast Guard had to do its thorough inspection of the Ship.
The food & elegant of service was not up to par as it had been on the Millennium in 2006, nor Azamara Journey in 2009. More
However, I love Celebrity & am taking the October 10th, 12 Day Holy Land Cruise on The Silhouette and remaining on Board for the Transatlantic Cruise into Port Liberty, NJ Less

Port and Shore Excursions
Watch out for the prices at the stores at the port. They are expensive and have nothing unusual. I wish we had more time to spend in that City.
I only wish we had more time in Port so that we could also have visited Panama City.
Don't forget to bargain in the jewelry stores.
The Jewelry stores will bargain if they have had a quiet day.
Fortunately, the Ship did not spend too much time in that port.
