With the turmoil of a world pandemic and the cruising world fearful of masks and the unvaccinated, comes Celebrity Cruise Line to the rescue. We just got back from our second cruise aboard a Celebrity ship. This time the beautiful, reliable Celebrity Equinox, with 95+%/ 100% vaccinated passengers/crew. NO masks for vaccinated passengers made this vacation cruise a 'GO' having been cancelled and having cancelled many cruises this past 15 months. This is really the best of all times to be on a (vaccinated) cruise ship. The passenger capacity is 50% giving the 'glad to be back', eager to please staff more time to accommodate the fewer passengers in their care. No reservations needed at every venue, no crowded theatre shows, easy to self social distance in doors and around the pools. It is easier for the crew to keep the ship cleaner picking up after fewer passengers. Everything and everyone rated a perfect 10 out of 10. We probably shouldn't be 'letting the cat out of the bag' by advertising all this now, but we have already got all are bookings in for the cabins we desire for the foreseeable future. Bon Voyage !
Great cabin.Royal Suite 1118. 590 sq ft of cabin with 150 sq ft of balcony. Concierge Host (butler) was able to provide us with another reclining deck lounger on the balcony. Did not avail ourselves of the jacuzzi on the balcony. Plenty of drawer and closet space, DW travels with 8 bags of luggage. No noise issues or wind. Midship with nice overhang for shade by 10 am .Butler was very accommodating, brought us the famous scones to cabin teatime everyday as requested, instead of having to show up in Retreat Lounge and mingling (social distancing made easy and very enjoyable with this type of cabin).
