Wondering if the have the Captain's Club Elite and above breakfast?   Even though we are in a suite we enjoy their breakfast instead of a more formal one in Luminea.

Hi! I hope your cruise is wonderful!  We are booked for the Ultimate Southern Caribbean cruise next month and can't wait to be on board again.  I was wondering if you might be able to post some information on shore excursions.  I received  an E-mail from Celebrity today with an update on health protocols and was a little confused about it.  I called Celebrity and the agent wasn't too informative.

 

This is a clip from the message.  I wanted to know if they allow you to leave the ship in ports covered by the second bullet point or are you forced to take a tour in order to get off the ship.

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

I’m virtually certain that the purpose of the second bullet point is not to permit guests to leave the ship on their own in those ports. I believe these restrictions are coming from those ports/countries. 
 

Things may change (either way) by the time of your cruise.

Thanks for the input.  I'm hoping things relax because we prefer to wander instead of taking tours.  If we have to take a tour, we will.  I can't see being in ports and just staying on the ship.  Thanks again for the input.

Ports that I have been to numerous times, the ship is often my happy place.

I'm happy to see your posts as we are boarding on August 1st. Two questions; I did a B2B on Millennium last month and it did not have the pasta bar open, is it open on Equinox? Also, what is with the wristlets? We did not have them either. TIA

Captains Club happy hour lounge has been discontinued on all ships.  You can get your CC happy hour drinks in most lounges between 5-7 pm.

Thank you. That’s definitely a bummer. We enjoyed the sky lounge conversing with people and the hors d’oeuvres.  Now that drinks are included except for some last minute fares I’ve seen, this really isn’t a benefit anymore. I hope they bring it back by our next sailing.

Is the Sky Lounge bar open during the "happy hour" drinks time of 5-7, please? We love to have drinks up there, regardless of whether they are "free". 

According to my Celebrity app the Sky Lounge is open every day from 4pm to 2am. If you have either drinks package they are free up to the cost limits of the package. We are on the 8/27 Equinox sailing.

We are on the 8/15 sailing of Equinox.....our first Celebrity sailing.  QUESTIONS:  What are the alternatives for lunch on embarkation day....not Specialty Dining.  Also, is there Prime Rib on the first night like on Royal ships?

For lunch there is the Oceanview Café and Mast Grill, as for the Prime Rib, yes. If you download the Celebrity app you can click on dining for each day and check out the menu in the MDR.

 Cheers!

Thanks terrydtx I don't have a way to view the app, so appreciate your input. Will you be doing a live review when you sail? You are sailing on my birthday!  We don't go till Sept. 26.

It is also our 50th anniversary but with 4 sea days I should have time to post live.
