Thanks to Covid restrictions and other family travels, this was our first cruise in nearly 5 years. We had cruised twice before on Equinox and were a little concerned that the ship might have changed considerably. However, we needn't have worried as everything was more or less as we remembered it! Our only gripe was that most of our favourite, and quiet (!), sunbathing spots were now reserved for suite guests. However, we managed to find a few spots on Decks 5 and 15, so we weren't too put out!

Regarding the cruise itself, everything went very smoothly. Boarding was no longer the scrum that we remembered. We chose a boarding slot, turned up at the appointed time, and after ID checks and SeaPass scans we were able to board. I would comment that the Celebrity mobile app was somewhat temperamental and wouldn't display our electronic SeaPasses, so we had to resort to tried and trusted hard copy! We had "done" the safety briefing via the app, so instead of having to hang around in a crowded room listening to alarm signals, we just had to present ourselves at our muster station and have our names ticked off. A vast improvement on previous cruises..

Our stateroom (Aqua Deck 11) was comfortable, well equipped and had adequate storage space. Our attendant - Ana - was lovely and quickly provided my isotonic neck pillow and our complimentary bottle of fizz. We ate in Blu, which was as we remembered it. The many staff were friendly and attentive and the food, by and large, was generally good, although the quality did slip a bit on occasions. We also had one dinner in Tuscan grill - excellent - and a couple in the Oceanview cafe, which offered plenty of choices.
