This was our first cruise and my husband and I were unsure what to expect. Well ,what a fantastic cruising experience we have had. We booked a 7 night East Caribbean cruise on the Celebrity Equinox in June and was given 2 free pre cruise nights in Miami. We pre booked our excursions through Celebrity to Old San Juan, St Thomas and St Maarten and was given a good discount for pre booking early. Everything was well organised from the smooth embarkation to the disembarkation. The every day running of the ship and all the excursions were equally well organised by the Celebrity staff.The ship was kept clean and close attention was made to hand hygiene. All the staff were the most welcoming and friendly people that I have ever come across. Everybody was smiley and happy and could not do enough for you. We booked a cabin with a varender on deck 8. It gave the feeling of space and would definitely do so again.The cabin was of a very good standard, plenty of room and lots of storage. The bathroom was very spacious and the shower very roomy again excellent storage. We had our very comfy bed made in the morning and turned down at night by the room steward and chocolates on the bed which was a nice touch. We chose to eat breakfast and lunch in the ocean cafe which was self service. The food was of a very good standard. In the evening we chose the 8.30 seating time in the more formal dinning room which was top quality and of a very high standard. We were treated so well we felt like celebrities ! We are quiet people so chose to sun bath on the quieter Solstice deck at the top of the ship where they had very comfortable padded sun beds and chairs. In the evening we attended every theatre performance at 7pm which nicely fitted in with our 8.30pm restaurant seating time. The standard of the shows were extremely good. The cruise director Maarten was very good at organising all the ships entertainment and was well received by everyone. We will definitely be booking another Celebrity cruise and would definitely recommend Celebrity to others.
