Cruise Critic Editor Rating: Cabins

Celebrity stands out for having several upper-level accommodation that allow access to exclusive restaurants and lounges. If you're traveling as a group, plan to book into the same category because only suite passengers are allowed to eat in Luminae and Blu is reserved for AquaClass. While passengers in the more expensive cabins can choose to eat in the main dining room, their friends can't join them in the VIP venues.

All cabins have two twins that can be pushed together to form a queen bed. Some staterooms are also equipped with either a sofa bed and/or an upper pull-down bunk bed to accommodate a third or fourth passenger. Cabins also have a safe, a mini-fridge and an interactive TV. Wardrobe space is plentiful, but shelf space is limited. Cabins have hair dryers, and there are both European and American outlets.

  • Room categories include: inside, ocean view, balcony, AquaClass, Concierge Class, Suite Class
  • All cabin categories offer rooms fitting two to four people; suites can sleep four and family cabins can sleep up to five
  • More than 100 connecting rooms, perfect for families or groups traveling together
  • Accessible versions of all categories are available
  • Suite and AquaClass options all have associated perks, including exclusive restaurants and lounges (no guests allowed)

Standard bathrooms are well laid out, with a glass shower door, tiled floors and plenty of shelving, as well as a couple of small drawers and cabinets for storage. The free bath amenities (shampoo, conditioner, soap bar and lotion) are Gilchrist and Soames.

Interior: Inside cabins on Equinox are comfortably sized, at 183 to 200 square feet.

Ocean view: Standard ocean-view rooms are 177 square feet, essentially the same as the interiors, but with a window. Ocean-view family suites are 575 square feet. These latter cabins have a second bedroom with a single twin bed, as well as a sofa bed in the living room.

Balcony: Standard balcony cabins run 194 square feet with 54-square-foot balconies. Balcony furniture consists of a round wooden table and two mesh lounge chairs.

Concierge Class: Concierge Class cabins are identical to regular balcony cabins, but they're distinguished by their premier locations -- higher up, facing the back -- and include perks like priority check-in and debarkation, welcome bubbly, Frette bathrobes, a pillow menu, massaging showerhead in the bathroom and access to an expanded room service breakfast menu. There's also an exclusive pre-departure lounge onboard with free coffee and juices for passengers staying in Concierge Class or above cabins.

AquaClass: AquaClass cabins (also the same size as standard balconies, with the same configuration) give passengers access to the AquaSpa relaxation room (with padded daybeds and ocean views), the Persian Garden (pre- and post-treatment grottos with steam, dry heat and aromatherapy) and Blu restaurant.

Special perks include fluffier bathrobes and towels, as well as AquaSpa "amenity kits" that include foot spray, lip balm and relaxation mist. Cruisers in AquaClass cabins also get fresh iced tea and canapes daily, as well as an upgraded (and healthier) room service menu. The bathroom has spa products, and the shower has a five-head Hansgrohe setup.

Suites: All suite passengers have access to the Retreat, a private lounge; Luminae, the stunning suite-only restaurant; a butler; in-room lunch and dinner service; evening hors d'oeuvres; complimentary espresso; and other perks that might include an exclusive sail-away party on the helipad.

Sky Suites: Entry-level Sky Suites are 300 square feet with a 79-square-foot balcony. They feature larger TVs, mini-fridges and shower-tub combos.

Celebrity Suites: These suites (394 square feet with 104-square-foot balconies) add yet more space, a distinct separation between bedroom and living room, plus two TVs.

Royal Suites: At 590 square feet with 158-square-foot balconies, Royal Suites come with added amenities such as a wet bar, dining room table, walk-in closet in the bedroom and a whirlpool on the balcony.

Penthouse Suites: Equinox's top accommodations are its 1,291-square-foot Penthouse Suites, each with floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors leading onto a 389-square-foot balcony, a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, a marble master bath (including a 26-inch TV), a separate living room, a full bar and a baby grand piano. The huge balconies feature plenty of lounge seating and a whirlpool each.
