We are a couple who has been cruising since 1984 on various lines but mostly Celebrity. Our first sailing (that my husband didn’t want to try) was a prize I won for a real estate sales contest. We went and were ...

What a confusing ship

This is an odd one. My and my wife (both mid-30's) just got off this ship and I can say we were not too thrilled about the ship itself. The crew was super, service was spot on, and food was outstanding. I'll just do ...

Great week on the Equinox

The whole Celebrity experience from start to finish is a cut above most of the cruise industry IMO. I'll find it very hard to leave. Celebrity buffet is better than anything I've had on CCL or N.C.L or Princess. ...
