Spotlight on: Celebrity Equinox

The Equinox 

 In December 2014, my husband and I took an 11 night cruise on the Celebrity Equinox. 

We had an Aqua class cabin so we eat at a special restaurant called Blu and have access to an area of the spa with a special steam room and shower plus showers and heated lounge chairs.  The first night dinner in Blu was fantastic: corn velouté, ahi tuna, filet mignon, beets and the service was great. 

Activities - We attended trivia, a lecture on the ship's recycling programs, a meringue dance lesson.  This ship also has a live hot glass show that is really interesting to watch. The glass makers sculpt and blow glass into some amazing shapes.

Bars - The Gastropub is brand new and no other ship has it. It's a great beer bar with a solid beer list. 
Santos, the bartender, is fantastic. He enrolled in a very rigorous training program for bartenders called World Class. I don't think we ordered a drink by name. We would just walk up and say something refreshing or something with bourbon. The Molecular Bar is another great bar. The bartenders use foam, liquid nitrogen, and unusual fresh ingredients to make unique cocktails.

Overall, the crew was very friendly. It was the cleanest cruise ship we have ever been on. Our room steward was fantastic and the common areas were kept spotless. 

The Equinox heads to Europe for the summer and fall and I highly recommend it.
