Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I will not mention the name of the retreat host we had for our suite on this cruise but the person in question made an already great cruise so much more enjoyable. It's the little touches that make the experience outstanding. The lady in question found out early on what we liked to do, what we liked to eat and what we liked to drink and made sure that every day we had fresh melon (our daughter loves it), fresh orange juice (for me), diet coke (for my wife) and caffeine free diet coke (for my daughter). Our suite was immaculate and well maintained. I can't describe how clean the room was. All the furniture must have been recently replaced as all looked brand new. Because three of us went on this cruise, I gave the bedroom up to my wife and daughter and I slept in the living room and because the suite had one and a half bathrooms it meant I could get up in the middle of the night (I’m getting old) and not wake up anybody else. The sofa bed was remarkably comfortable, I had no problems with sleep. During this cruise Celebrity offered in-room childcare which I used on many occasions. It's a brilliant service and my daughter looked forward to it. They gave us a phone that we could use to talk to her at any point (and vice-versa) so we could go out for a late night with no concerns about our daughter’s safety. I recommend, if the in-room childcare is available and you have a young child with you that you use this service. Now for the restaurants. We tried every restaurant onboard (apart from Blu). We did not enjoy "le petit chef" and found the food to be mediocre at best. We tried the chefs table and yet again didn't find the food to be as outstanding as expected. Murano was good quality; the service was outstanding. Suchi on five was also excellent but my favourite restaurant (by far) was Tuscan Grille. It's located at the rear of the ship with incredible views. If you can, I recommend getting a round table overlooking the rear of the boat. The food, drinks and service in Tuscan Grille were excellent; you will not be disappointed. Due to how good the boat is and how good the service is onboard, I don't think it matters where you are cruising, a good time is sure to occur.

Everything about the cruise was nice but not spectacular. I've been on others that had more events onboard to do and were much more fun. The dining experience was a big mixup for us.They were good about it, but had a time, about 3 days worth, to get us all at one table. It was quite confusing. I've never been on a ship where it's confusing like this. The food was very good tho, but they could have had a bigger selection too. And having a hard time hearing,their announcements should have been MUCH louder, even WIth hearing aids.

We just returned from a Caribbean cruise to the ABC islands. As usual, the whole experience was great. I am always amazed at the quality of the meals offered to a crowd of 2000 plus. The Equinox still feels current and new. The service is outstanding and the entertainment is first class! There are a couple of things that could be improved: shore excursions and the main dining. We did a snorkeling excursion in Bonaire and it was a disappointment. The main dining room was crowded, tables too closed to each other. They want to group several couples in one large table. Just say no, thank you! Otherwise, the cruise is a great value.

We recently completed a 9-day cruise to the Grand Caymans, Aruba and Curacao. Overall, we enjoyed the cruise. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our cabin was clean and comfortable. The food was a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. We met several really nice couples. The main attraction was the Martini Bar. Everyone seemed to gather there after dinner or a show. The bartenders put on a show every night and their service was great. We are old but very active and exercise every day and were surprised by the number of passengers using motorized chairs, canes or walkers. There was a line of motorized chairs outside the restaurant every night. I am sure this is not our last cruise but we may be more cautious of which ship we book in the future. The Equinox is not a good choice for younger children as the average age of the passengers appeared to be 70+.

Fantastic trip! The weather was perfect, the staff and crew went above and beyond to make our trip memorable! Our cabin steward, Arvin, was incredible, any questions, he answered and gave instruction that was so helpful, we took our meals at the buffet as opposed to the dining room because of the more casual atmosphere, but the food quality was just as good. The wait staff was very friendly and welcoming. The shows were fantastic, especially the aerial artists, top quality!!! It was our first time sailing and we’re definitely going to sail again
