Second cruise first time on Equinox

Sail Date: April 2014
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
This was our second cruise, having cruise the Norwegian Sun last year . We wanted to upgrade so we chose the celebrity line. Equinox is beautiful. We found the food excellent and this was worth the upgrade. We also chose the Premium beverage package and we were glad to have done so. It was nice not to worry about signing for every drink,

We found the age of the cruisers to be a bit older than expected. Although we are in our sixties.

We made new friends and the trip was very enjoyable. The ship looks very clean. .

The pools seem a bit overcrowded there is no children's pool and the number of children on board was very small, but they were in the pool with the adults.

The staff was very efficient and for the most part gracious. It took a while for them to warm up.

In the beginning we did encounter a bartender at the pool that was not technically rude but definitively not friendly, this created a bad impression in all fairness most of the More staff was very helpful and went out of their way but definitively took time for them to warm up. The exception was the shore excursion lady who was great. We were charged drinks that were not suppose to be charge and guest relations took care of this very quickly.

We took some shore excursions and they were very good, We dine in 3 of the restaurants In Murano the food was incredible, the service outstanding better than we found on land, highly recommended. We were under the weather at the end and so was most of our table members a lot of coughing in the theatre and the balcony next door We certainly cannot blame this on the ship because cleanliness was top. We may want to try a smaller ship but we would love to go with the celebrity line again

The tuscan was also very good.Entertainment was very good and the whole atmosphere is classy . We would sail this ship again our only complaint is the time it took for the staff to warm up. Less
