I am a widow and a repeat passenger with Celebrity. This was my first cruise on the Equinox. I was part of a singles group on board. Celebrity staff was helpful, professional and always smiling.
Captain Kate is the most awesome and hands on Captain that I have ever sailed with. It was a privilege to be a passenger on 'her' ship.
Food is subjective, but for the most part, I enjoyed all of my meals. The buffet is excellent for a buffet; the Main Dining Room had excellent food and great service. Had dinner twice at the Tuscan Grille. Worth the upcharge.
Clean, roomy, lots of storage.
It is difficult to find a convenient hotel - especially one with inexpensive parking (or any parking). Stayed by the airport the night before at a hotel with a parking package. Free shuttle to the port (but $10 to return to the hotel to pick up your car).
I will be trying to avoid taking cruises out of Miami in the future.
