Elated with Equinox

Sail Date: March 2010
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We have traveled on many cruise ships with many cruise lines and have been on several Celebrity ships but we have both agreed that our recent trip from March 29,2010 to April 9, 2010 on the Equinox was fabulous.

We feel in love with the ship and all that it had to offer. Our cabin was lovely and we enjoyed our mornings sitting on the veranda and having our coffee while we sailed on the very blue Caribbean. Our cabin steward(Miguel) was wonderful and did not miss a thing including making sure we had everything we needed especially my ice water.

Our dinner companions at our table came from England, Canada and Florida. We had a lot of interesting conversations spending longer than each night having our dinner at the 6:00 seating. Our table was 344 and our waiter Gary never rushed us. The food was very good most nights and though we did eat at the Tuscan grill and thoroughly enjoyed every morsel.

Our ship stopped at Grand Cayman, Cartagena, Panama,Costa Rica, More Roatan, & Mexico. The few trips we took from the ship were okay but the one we took in Roatan was not described correctly. They did not say that the trip to the ship wreck was going to entail jumping off the boat and swimming back to shore this was a problem for some.

Most of the shows on board were very good, we especial like the performance by the ships cast, the dancers were fantastic. The only really bad night was when they had a singer named Travis, who thought he could impersonated other singer. Totally wrong, really bad and so was the ventriloquist the last time he preformed.

Though we traveled on a full ship that had 355 children and over 45 countries represented you would only know that when we had to disembark the ship. That is something that Celebrity needs to improve upon. It is the time it takes getting to your luggage that was unorganized. We loved the ship so much we book another cruise for June, 2010 on the Eclipse to the Baltic. Great work Celebrity we look forward many more cruises with you Less

Cabin review: con1176

We were on Deck 10 in the Concierge class. Our Cabin Stewart was great the room was very nice with a great Veranda, Closet space was good but the draw space was not sufficient. There were only 5 draws. They should put the safe back in the closet and add two more draws. Having to climb up on the bed to get into the additional storage space is not practical and inconvenient. I can't imagine what an other couple would have done. The hallway( to the room)carpet seemed to have an odor but that was not true any where else on the ship.

Port and Shore Excursions

We tried to book this tour with a company other than the ship but had trouble finding others to join us so we went with the ships tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We were on a small air conditioned bus and saw all the sights we had wanted to see. We even got more because we were there on Good Friday. The only thing that was a negative was our guide spoke alot about the difference between the rich and the poor but other than that the trip was good

been there so many times that we just look around at the shops right at the pier and went back on the ship

Has a lot to offer though we had just been there so we did not avail our selves of any of the tours but Grand Cayman is a very beautiful place to visit. It is very easy to get around.

We took the ships Aerial Tram over the canopy and were very disappointed with the entire trip. They charged to much money for so little to see and it took 2 hours there and 2 hours back.

We took the ships tour to the Shipwreck and beach. We were very disappointed with the fact that we first had to travel on a school bus that had no shocks to a beautiful beach where we had to ride on a boat that took us to a shipwreck that we had to jump off the boat because there was no ladder. The boat did not stay there and you had to swim back to shore. The details of this tour was lacking in the description given by the ship in their destinations
