  1. The Ensemble Lounge has really friendly bartenders.
  2. I like Oceania’s Marina and Riviera especially the food and itineraries. They aren’t really new though. Selling off the old ships and building new ones is a great idea for Crystal to keep their fleet updated but small. Most lines keep their old ships and keep building new ones and that is when I think the lines start to go downhill.
  3. I think Crystal is well worth the cost for what you get. I also agree that Specialty dining is a must on Celebrity. I don’t agree that Crystal should increase their fleet too much as I think when lines “spread themselves thin” they decrease in the product they deliver and can’t produce consistency from ship to ship. Crystal now has yachts and river cruises also. Maybe a refurbishment of The Symphony and Serenity would be better than more ships.
  4. The menu was not enhanced but the price was $70 pp. The enhanced menu was served on Christmas Eve and was $119 pp. They did give a 30% discount on first night. Tuscan Grill is not worthy of the up charge.
  5. I wonder why they don’t have it anymore- love sipping a margarita or pina colada listening to Red, Red Wine🍹
  6. Good idea about taking the screen shot! Thanks
  7. Abbreviated is an understatement! They performed a Pas De Deux- it was excellent but it’s like saying you went to a Rolling Stones concert and they sang one song
  8. My husband and I are frequent cruisers and have been on 30+ cruises on many different cruise lines. This was our 4th Celebrity cruise and 2nd on Equinox. We have no loyalty to any line so I hope to give a non-biased review of this sailing. Getting on the ship was relatively quick once I was able to open my Xpress Pass inside the cruise terminal. For some reason it was difficult to bring up on the App on my iPhone and was somewhat an annoying way to start the cruise. Once on board we were handed a half glass of pink sparkling wine and were told we had to drink it in the Grand Foyer.
  9. Same on the Equinox! It is pure greed and totally taking advantage of people! You are already paying a premium to do the Christmas sailing and then to double dip by increasing the upcharge for specialty dining puts a bad taste in my mouth! I used my OBC to pay for it but I was not happy about it. $70pp is ridiculous but $119pp is Highway robbery! That I won’t do. The food and service is not even close to that #!
  10. On S Class ships the Aqua Class cabins are the same size as standard Veranda cabins 194sq ft with 54sq ft balcony Of course there are deviations within each category but Aqua Class not bigger in general
  11. They do indeed have the worst website but if it is outdated then it is false advertising.
  12. I read that the Spa Cafe eliminated serving cooked to order salmon, tuna and chicken at lunch and saw a posted menu with limited offerings. Celebrity website has Spa Cafe menu and says you can get cooked to order salmon, tuna and chicken and to allow 15 minutes for the order. Have they started to serve these proteins again?
  13. Other than the disappointing dining how is everything else - entertainment, bar service, etc
  14. Aqua class cabins are the same size as all regular cabins on X and are not as big as HAL’s SS cabins. Only benefits of Aqua Class are Blu and Persian Garden. The Blu dining room is very nice and has better service but the food is not that much better than MDR. I prefer to book a regular Veranda cabin and spend the difference on Specialty dining unless there is a great deal on Aqua Class.
