Awesome Southern Caribbean Cruise

Review for Celebrity Equinox to Caribbean - Southern

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

With so many cruise cancellations because of Covid, we were eager to get back on board a ship and chose this one. Of course going to the Caribbean is a no brainer. We embarked in Fort Lauderdale, which was quick and easy. 9 night cruise, with ports of call in Grand Cayman and the famous ABC Islands...Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire. My favorite was Curacao, with my wife's being Bonaire. Great weather, ...

Embarkation timing was poor - we paid to upgrade to Concierge class, which comes with an embarkation lunch. Unfortunately Celebrity would not let us check in until 2PM. The lunch was already over by the time we got on the ship. Also, the Celebrity app started pining us every hour around 11AM warning us that we had to view the safety briefing and check in at our station before 3 PM. By the ...

Great ship but dated with subpar food

Super shocked to have to write a review for an Oasis class ship that had bad food but this one was a shocker. Albeit this is our first cruise post Covid I think that its just how things might be for a bit. The main dining room was a huge let down. We tend to avoid buffets on ships but on this one we had to go a couple times because the MDR was just disappointing and often cold. MDR food: ...

excellent 8 day cruise with a good itinerary. ate breakfast and dinner in the main dining room. the food on this ship tastes like food i would get in a regular restaurant. even the desserts tasted rich. never did figure out my time dining. apparently its MyTime as long as it is after 6:30. after the first night i tried making a dinner reservation in any restaurant on the ship including ...

I was incredibly nervous about going on Explorer with our kids, knowing it hadn’t been revamped yet. Yes it doesn’t have waterslides or laser tag or other things the bigger and newer ships might have, but they had excellent food and service which was way more important! We had gone on Oasis in February and the food was very disappointed- my blueberry pancakes were so over MICROWAVED that they were ...

RCL has fallen from grace...

We've cruised probably 12-14 times since 1999, and in the last 10 years we had become very enamored and impressed with RCL. So much so, we literally hadn't even 'shopped' or looked at other Cruise lines. Starting with Independence back in 2010, then graduating to the Oasis Class and traveling on Allure (2 times pre-pandemic), Harmony, and Oasis herself and then again on Independence in January ...

Mariner of the Seas is a lovely ship. It was very clean and altho it could use some TLC in some areas there wasn't any one thing that was "horrible". The crew was great! There is a lot to do on the ship, the dining venues are plentiful. Aruba- Took the free trolley to downtown. It is a nice ride to the downtown shopping area. Watch the time because the trolley stops running around 4p or so ...

We chose this cruise for its length and itinerary. It was my 3rd time on the Mariner OS. This cruise was definitely the best of 4 since the restart. The ship was fully staffed and near capacity. The MoS is a great size, easy to navigate and is comfortable. The casino is a little small but always active, particularly in the evenings. Aruba, Curacao and Bonaire were all first time stops for us ...

I choose this cruise because of the destinations the price and the dates. I had an inside cabin for 3 people. I was surprised on how spacious it was which included a sofa. I had the unlimited dinning package and the food of each of the specialty restaurants was great. Embarkation was fast and painless, also leaving the ship on the last date. Notice that I carry my own luggage. There were ...

An Overall GREAT Family Vacation

Have been on a couple other cruise lines, but Royal Caribbean is always a favorite of our family. Last Cruise we had our two teenage boys with us and although they were in the adjoining cabin, we rarely saw them. I was nervous initially about their age group (and the Allure has not been through the Royal Upgrade yet (with waterslides and bunch of other perks)) but there were so many ...
