we were on the Equinox last year, loved it and rebooked on her for this year. Overall the quality was good. Service excellent, bar service great. Food? The main dining room the food was excellent. As for the Specialty restaurants, quality seemed a bit lower than prior year. I will admit that the Chateaubriand for 2 was horrible, we left 90% on the plate . When asked how was your dinner wh honestly told the waiter of the quality . Now , It was resolved as we were invited back for a " we are sorry dinner" Steak Dianne was prepaired at our table .. This is what you call service and respect for customers. We are committed Celebrity cruisers , and have always liked the service. We appreciate that food prices have gone up and the cruise line has and is trying to balance quality with price.The cruise line shoud I hope take into consideration the the food consummed in the specialty dining rooms gives a credit to the general food costs in teh main dining room and buffet. Don't be cheap. We will be giviing the Specialty Restaurants another try on our next cruise in September 2019, on the Infinity. Cabin was always clean. Was it because of the ship's age, or some other problem but the water for the shower, too hot and no adjustment worked, and toilet flush did not operate one or twice during the cruise ( both were quickly attended to. ) This is what you call service . We are Looking forward to our September cruise. Read Less

We had such a relaxing, wonderful cruise. Everyone was so great from check in to departure. The food, and staff in Blu, and at specialty dining(Murano and Tuscan Grille) were amazing. We loved our bartenders! Thank you Jede Astawa, Jose and Pedro. Hope to see you next time! We loved the gym, Persian gardens and sauna. The solarium is beautiful as well. We spent quite a few days at the pool. The sunset bar was great too. The staff at celebrity did everything to make the cruise so special. We celebrated our 34th anniversary. There was champagne waiting in our room. Every afternoon there was a delicious surprise waiting for us from cheeses and fruit to shrimp or different meats. The guest entertainers were wonderful. Ashlie Amber was sensational. The comics were very funny. We love to dance and there were so many opportunities to do just that.(especially “silent disco”) the pool party was fun and the dancers from the show did a little something to entertain. The band was wonderful! Read Less

We took a western Caribbean cruise on the Equinox in April and had a very enjoyable cruise. Embarkation Embarkation was easy and we were on quickly. We ignored the suggested embarkation times in Celebrity’s email. Getting a glass of bubbly when you get on is great. The terminal area was crowded with five large ships turning around that day. The cabin/suite experience is We had a S1 corner aft Sky Suite. It was our first time in a suite on Celebrity and we enjoyed the extra space in the suite and the somewhat larger balcony. The bathroom has a tub/shower with a curtain, not a glass door. We prefer a glass door. Only one sink in the bathroom and it was a little tight for space. The rainfall shower head was about 6 feet and 1 inch high so that was tight too. Plenty of storage space but short on hangar space and hangars. The room didn’t stay very cool at night. The sitting area inside was spacious. Since we were in the aft, we felt the aft thrusters on early morning port arrivals and it was hard to sleep through that. Otherwise it was very quiet. The seas were extremely calm so there was no ocean-motion to speak of at all. Our butler and room attendant performed well and our butler gave us a tray of cheese and crackers every afternoon and replaced our bottle of sparkling wine when we ran out. We went to Michael’s Club as suite guests a few times. It was nice, and quiet, but there was no wow factor there. We would not recommend booking a suite just to get into the Cub. Nobody there ever asked if we were allowed into the Club, we just walked in. Priority tendering was nice in Grand Cayman. Food and beverage Dining and wine are important elements of a vacation to us. Celebrity did an overall very good job here. We ate in Luminae as suite guests and the food there ranged from good to excellent. The seared scallops on the second Chic night were excellent. The so-called signature Luminae burger was huge but didn’t live up to it’s billing as it was not very flavorful. The seared scallops and Caribbean lobster on the second Chic night were the dining highlights. Breakfast was good there with plenty of options and great pastries. The sommelier, Yan, did an superb job and helped us pick bottles for each dinner by showing us the next night’s menu so we could discuss it. Our server, Luis, was also very good and would bring items from the main dining room or even Blu. The other servers also appeared to be very helpful, friendly and efficient. We didn’t try any of the special restaurants. We did have lunch from the Mast Grill or the Oceanview Cafe a few times. The pasta station in the Cafe was excellent! Bar service was good to very good at the bars. The mixed drinks were consistently very good to excellent. Entertainment We didn’t go to a lot of the shows but we did go to the first comic and the magician. The comic was very funny, and a family friendly show. The magician was very full of himself and rude on a couple occasions. We like to play blackjack but on this cruise the blackjack tables paid 6-5 for a blackjack, which to us isn’t really blackjack. Many tables used a continuous shuffle which we don’t like either. The $50 table paid 3-2 for blackjack but that’s too steep of a minimum for us. We saw very little blackjack being played and the casino seemed quiet. We didn’t see any educational or enrichment lectures offered on board. Port shopping previews don’t count. There were a number of activities during the day but some were with an extra cost, such as wine tastings. We did one wine tasting and it was ok; the wines were average. It was hard to get a lounger by the pool on sea days. There was a variety of live music throughout the ship which was very good. The duo Drift were excellent! The Silent Disco was a blast and needs to be experienced to truly appreciate it! Excursions We did the Salsa, Salsa and Beach Break in Costa Maya through Celebrity. It was an early 8:30 departure for making salsa and drinking tequila! It was a fun excursion for us and we were back on by noon. Costa Maya itself didn’t seem like a port to explore without an excursion. We did the Chef’s Market and Private Dinner in Cozumel. The executive sous chef went with 7 passengers and a guide and driver to a chocolate manufacturer, several markets in Cozumel, as well as a tequila tasting. We then had lunch at a nice spot in Cozumel. That part lasted about 4-5 hours and our guide gave us a great background on Mayan history and culture. At about 7 that evening, we regathered on board and met the chef for a galley tour (during dinner, very cool!) then a special seven-course meal in Tuscan but based on local flavors. We didn’t eat what the chef bought in port but it was a delicious dinner. There was also a huge amount of food! We didn’t do excursions in Key West or Grand Cayman, we explored the towns on our own. Cozumel could also be done on your own. In all the ports, you could certainly book your own excursions. Disembarkation Disembarkation was fine. We had a full breakfast in Luminae but had to be done there by 8:00. Getting off was quick, Customs was quick, and getting a taxi was easy. Read Less
