  3. Celebrity Equinox
We were looking for a cruise with some uniqueness to the port destinations. After being an exclusive 5 time Celebrity cruiser we did look at others but came to the conclusion that Celebrity again provided everything and more than all but luxury lines. We spent the night before embarkation in Barcelona. We were a short 10 minute taxi at 11:30 from the port (20 Euros).Hotel 1898 - excellent! We had Aqua Class boarding and we were having a cocktail in less than 30 minutes on board. This is our 3rd Aqua Class sailing. The cabin is fine for 2 adults. Try breakfast or snacks and drinks on the balcony. Aqua has its own dining with a "lighter" menu....but you can have pretty much anything. Just ask. Silk Harvest (Asian) was a pleasant surprise DO NOT make the mistake of over ordering go back a second time. As I indicated earlier we have sailed with Celebrity before but for some reason the few visits to buffet were notably improved. Don't miss Tuscan.Highly recommend premium drink package! Entertainment measures up to expectations no disappointments. The Spa XCellent. No comment on activities.....we really do not participate but there were a ton of them. We can never rave enough about Celebrity's superior service throughout the entire ship. Whoever has corporate responsibility for service deserves a bonus. I have always thought the ports are great loved Malta and Mallorca, think the tour selection is complete but think the guides usually disappoint. We have already booked a Baltic cruise for 2017.

Celebrity never fails to disappoint.
