Celebrity Equinox Cruise Review by U4icmusic
- Sail Date: February 2017
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Veranda (obstructed view)
The DJ was horrific at all times. He could not mix music together in any way, shape or form. Why wear headphones on your ears if you don't know how to use them to mix. Plus, mixing is not done on a DJ controller and a laptop pc, so it's super easy if you have even a drop of talent, which DJ Garcia did not. Every time a new song was getting ready to play, you could hear him stutter or scratch the intro of the next song. It was jarring to the ears and the music was plain bad, If nobody is on the dance floor, change up the music.
Those big negatives are why I gave the cruise a three star review.
On the positive side, staff, service and food were all excellent. We ate in both the dining room and in the buffet and found them both to be consistently good every night. My only complaint about the food, is the lack of a late-night or 24 hour eatery, like most other cruise lines offer. This was especially important since we two overnight stays in New Orleans. People stumbling back to the ship at 2 or 3 am had nothing to eat since the buffet closes at midnight and even the buffet is VERY limited after dinner hours.
The ship was clean and well-maintained. The staff excelled in every way in every department. We had the classic drink package and never had to wait for drinks at any of the bars. Servers were constantly asking us poolside if we needed more drinks, which was nice.
The shows were good, but not great. The ship cast has many shortcomings when it comes to singing. There was only one woman, Ashlie-Amber that could sing and she did it well. She needs to be a real recording artist. The others were average and downright bad. All three productions shows were medleys of songs with no plot or theme, so they were boring. Most ships now show Broadway musicals, like Hairspray, Chicago, etc.
