Our 16th cruise but only our first with Celebrity and it was a very pleasurable experience! Embarkation/Debarkation was a breeze. Our room was more than adequate...and Sasa our Room Steward was OUTSTANDING! We tried the main dining room most of the time and found the food/service to be WONDERFUL. We managed to do Murano, Tuscan and Silk Harvest several times as well. All were SPECTACULAR. We tried most of the events/activities...wine tastings, theater shows and comics, lectures in Celebrity Central, glass blowing, the gym, the pools/hot tubs, bars, "silent disco"(what a blast!) and the musicians (especially the Emotions Duo, cute women playing Cello & Violin!). All FANTASTIC!! I still had enough time to relax & read a James Patterson novel. We did shore excursions in all the ports. Cayman's City & Beach tour was kind of a snoozer and we had the "tender from hell" getting back to the ship. I certainly hope that the Equinox Safety Officer reviews the incident and comes away with some "lessons learned"...'nuff said. We did the Cochocoban Mayan site and Beach Resort in Costa Maya. Great tour...knowledgeable & articulate guide. We did the Market & Chocolate tour in Cozumel... really a fun time including the galley tour & on-board meal. Kudos to Omar! We had a BLAST at Mardi Gras on our own... although we did do the Palm Court Dinner & Jazz tour...which was...so-so at best. I wouldn't recommend that tour to anyone. But Mardi Gras was truly a unique experience...the highlight of the cruise. The sights, sounds, food, drinks and overall party atmosphere were truly memorable! We travelled with both friends and relatives which made the trip even more fun. Of course we always make new friends on our cruises...this one included. The overall service, food and experience on the Equinox was second to none...GREAT JOB!

Great Cruise... Great Ship!
