  3. Celebrity Equinox
We have just returned from a great week on the Equinox. This was our 12th Celebrity Cruise and 20+ overall. This ship is in excellent condition and very beautiful in all the public areas. This was our first time in a suite and we both agree the experience was amazing. The retreat sundeck and the lounge were both great experiences as well as eating in Luminae. We never really figured out what the Butler was there for and ended up utilizing him very little. As an Elite Celebrity guest we both agree that the suite experience was great but that overall, Celebrity is just better at customer service then other lines. We enjoyed Michele Redding the guitarist and would typically end up heading to where he was to enjoy the music and views of the ocean. We both agree, that the ship never seemed to be crazy busy even in the Oceanview Cafe? Ports: San Juan- Just ok, been there before and getting in at 3;30 leave very little time to do very mush except walk around the town and shop. St. Thomas- Rented a Jeep and went to Hull Bay and then to Brewers Bay. Both were very nice and much less crowded! Tortola- Book an excursion to Virgin Gorda- This really is a must while in the area. It is a beautiful island. All of them are in various stages of recovery but still beautiful places to visit. Upon leaving Tortola make sure to be up top as you sail through the Drake Channel - very picturesque. Nassau- stayed on board. It rained but this place is really a poor choice for Celebrity. Wish they would head elsewhere like Key West?? We will for sure be back on the Equinox and Celebrity Cruises

Cabin Review

Sky Suite
Cabin S2 2118
Cabin 2118 mid/aft deck 12 is a great room. The Sky Suite was beautifully appointed and it was the largest room we have had on a cruise.
