We were looking for a longer cruise, and the possibility of a Trans-Atlantic and Europe (a first for me, not my Honey). We tend to look at Celebrity first for the balance and class - I can get a waterslide anywhere. We spent 3 days in Rome prior to departure, and actually enjoyed walking 20 miles (really!) to tour the city. We were very lucky and happy with our Airbnb rental and the location. Food was fabulous, and the history incredible. The Vatican Museum tour was a cattle drive, unfortunately. I wanted nothing more than to stop and admire art, but this was not practical. The neighborhood we were in had everything - history, food, churches, people all within 10 minutes walk. We would visit again independent of a cruise. We took a shared van to the port, which arrived an hour late due to traffic. One would think they would have accounted for that (Rome - traffic???). Note to self - shared rides somewhat unpredictable. The embarkation in Civitavecchia was as painless as any we've done. The best part was our room was ready so we could drop our carry-on and packs. That was absolutely terrific, and we enjoyed exploring. The ship is similar to the Celebrity Summit, and for that matter the other Celebrity ships, so we found our way around easily. We will say that the crowd was a bit older than usual, likely due to the long transatlantic. It wasn't a significant issue. Contrary to other reviews, the ship was well maintained - and I'm a picky engineer. There was no more wear than we might tolerate in a upper end hotel, and certainly as good as home. There were some elevator troubles during the trip, but the staff seemed to jump on them quickly. Interestingly, a manufacturer tech came on the boat at one of the ports. The meals in the MDR were always excellent and well presented, with the exception of one fish dish. This was promptly addressed. We even did the MDR a few times for lunch, which was relaxing. We did Select, and chose to sit with others - we were always quickly seated and met many nice people. The wait service was very good, though occasionally finding the Sommelier was a bit slow. I usually request medium rare, and didn't receive any meat overcooked. Veggies were fresh and crisp. We ate in Tuscan two nights. The food was excellent, and more than we could eat. The pasta and sauces were quite nice, and were the meats. The service was attentive and prompt. We noticed on both nights, it was not overly busy. We ate in Qsine one night, primarily to see the holographic "show". We were worried that the show was going to be more important than the "show", which was not the case. The food was properly prepared and served. We did not do Sushi on 5, but never got around to it for our lunch intention. While the specialties were of good quality, it is our intention in the future to largely stick with the main dining room, unless we see something on a menu or event that is exceptional. Sorry no Murano, perhaps our favorite specialty on the Equinox. The gym was fine, and not overly crowded. Funny, the sauna was crowded - many naked older men. The pools were good, and I enjoyed the "waves" of the boat motion in the middle of the Atlantic. There were a fare share of lounge hogs, but we found mid afternoon was a good time. We were surprised by the really fun canapes delivered by the waiters around the Solarium Pool in the afternoon - great touch Celebrity! The music onboard was enjoyable, with the best traveling minstrels being "Gilly and The Girl". They were worth seeing for their music and their gravitas. Smart of the activities group to give them and evening main stage show. The production shows were so much fun. The singers and dancers were talented/enthusiastic, and when among the passengers, very personable. Always made it a point to at least slot the evening show. The informative speakers (behind the Podium?) were fine. The "scientific professor" was interesting. The "naturalist" lady was a bit far out there - much anthropomorphizing by her for her sea life. Very much enjoyed the later hours night life at the bars and up in the Constellation Lounge. We will miss our bartenders in the Rendezvous! We took two Celebrity excursions. The Tenerife National Park and volcano was incredible. Not to be missed. The trip to Mijas from Malaga has a dual review: the town was wonderful, pretty, interesting - the tour guide was marginal in her English, and she left almost NO TIME to explore the town, or even sit to eat/drink. We will go back, but hire a cab in the future. We would have enjoyed lunch or an appetizer. Read Less
