We certainly enjoyed our large group (100 members) cruise on the Celebrity Equinox. The captain, his officers and Activities Director and Team were so personable, funny and very good at what they do. We did many more activities than we ever did before. The evening concert on The Lawn with blankets and pillows provided was a big hit with many of us. The evening entertainment was top notch!! Loved Top Chef at Sea. The dining room, buffet and specialized restaurant food were very good. Several in our group were in suites and were surprised to discover they could not join us and eat in the main dining room. They had to eat in designated dining rooms. Our group was supposed to have a block of tables indicated with signs on each table in the Silhouette Dining Room. Did not happen the first night and several other evenings. I miss "formal nights". These cruises have guests mainly between the ages of 50 and up who look forward to these special evenings. One day, we saw a bare-chested man entering the Oceanview Cafe. He was stopped 2' inside the door by a server and told he needed a shirt. We did have lunch in the Silhouette dining room and saw both men and women wearing baseball caps. Would have liked to see a staff member ask them to remove their hats or suggest they take a more casual cruise line. We were surprised the dining room ran out of Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio! Our Stateroom Attendant, Bernadeth, was an asset to Celebrity Cruise Lines. Very pleasant, helpful and hard-working.

Cabin Review

Concierge Class
Cabin C3 1134
Our Stateroom Attendant, Bernadeth, was outstanding. The veranda room was identical to the last two cruises. This time, we were offered more "perks" with concierge class. I enjoyed the fruit and canapes in the room, but I doubt I would do concierge service again.
