  3. Celebrity Equinox
Enjoyed the cruise immensely due to the itinerary, but being on the Equinox is just like being on a tired version of the Eclipse. I missed Qsine but still love the Martini Bar. We opted for select dining this time; not sure we would do it again as I didn't realise how much I would miss not having the same wait staff each night. The food, however, is still great on Celebrity. I don't like the evening chic idea, but that's just me - some people didn't dress smartly at all, which is a shame when you see how smart the wait staff are. Sorry, but wearing jeans - no matter how smart you think they are - in a lovely dining atmosphere is a definite no-no, but like I say, that's my opinion, which we're all entitled to. Embarkation was as smooth as ever - have never had a problem with this on any Celebrity sailing. The only gripe I have with Celebrity is the standard of entertainment - most of it is poor, with the odd decent act now and again. Cleanliness was squeaky clean, as always with Celebrity - I never cease to be impressed with the cleaning on-board. Our cabin was on deck 7, mid-ship and in an excellent location together with being very quiet and with a brilliant cabin steward. Staff are always friendly - I've never met any staff on-board Celebrity ships who are not friendly and most of them will go above and beyond what you expect and always with a smile. The gym was always in a clean condition and was well used during our cruise. Didn't book any shore excursions so can't comment on them.

Equinox is a more tired version of Eclipse IMHO
