We've been to both RC and Carnival so just want to try Celebrity and booked the Equinox for its destination...ACB. We are a family of 4 and both my wife and I are in mid-fifties with 2 daughters and this trip was for our 25 yrs anniversary. This is our first cruise with Celebrity & post pandemic. After reading lots of reviews, we lower expectation a bit as keep hearing services and foods are not up pre-pandemic.
1st impression: Celebrity Equinox is a smaller ship compared to our previous ones with RC (Allure) so I found it to be more intimate and nostalgic as Equinox is somewhat having similar size with RC ship for our honey moon 25yrs ago.
The embarkation process was smooth and fast as no welcoming photo booth that we had in previous cruises which is a good thing. My first impression that Equinox is catering to elderly so there were few kids or teens running around.
