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

Congratulations! This past June was our 40th. We had a wonderful cruise in May scheduled for it - that got canceled, rescheduled for our actual anniversary, then fell short of first sail date by 2 weeks! Looking forward to this one.

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.  

@Jim_Iain if it is any help they had it on Apex earlier this month. All served rather than buffet. Was very quiet but we like the later hours it has.

When I've been in it, it's always been served.

A few times (both in Constellation when it was in Tuscan Grill and a Solstice Class ship also in Tuscan Grill) it has been buffet style - but that was a few years ago. These photos were from Constellation 2018.

Have a great cruise..  is their any way to get a copy of the menus?

 

thank you,

May be easier to download Celebrity App and then select a current cruise and check out all the menus daily.  

 

You an also google on it and find sites like this.    Celebrity hasn't changed their menus in years.  The ones posted look identical to or close to the app but haven't checked them all just Day 1 that was recently posted on another thread.

Thanks for all the replies on the CC Breakfast.   You are making me salivate with the beautiful pictures.   I remember both being served and buffet style.   We are not big breakfast eaters and usually eat in our Suite but we are traveling in a SS this time and it looks cramped for breakfast.  

 

Also Iain is late sleeper and having a bedroom  with a door makes it so easy to have breakfast served without him having to pull the covers over his head.

We are on the September 17th, 9 night ABC. Never sailed on Equinox, but did a transatlantic on Reflection a few years ago, and loved the ship. Still can get over a lawn sprinkler going at it in the morning at the lawn club. I gather Equinox is very similar, and excited that she just came out of referb before COVID. Like most, its been quite a while since my last cruise. Thanks to all for the pictures and comments.

Even though she went in for refurb, not everything that was planned was done since, instead of Bahamas drydock, they had to sail all the way to Spain and back which cut out many work days.  We were on last year after the drydock and some public areas were updated and a few cabins.  But many (maybe most) cabins did not receive new carpeting like was planned.  Fortunately the Sky Lounge was not cut in half so that was a positive.  But still in great shape.

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

When we travel, we try not to duplicate our destinations, not always possible with cruises, so most of the ports are our first visit.

 We went up to the hot glass class this morning. We watched a young man create his piece. He did more of assisting… He got to choose his colors, help shape the glass, and blow torch the finished product. It took him about 15 minutes to create it. It was neat to watch. Hope this helps 🙂

Thank you for sharing your cruise experiences with us. My friend and I did this a couple years ago! So happy to see it’s still available to do. We absolutely loved our hearts that we made.

Got so excited I upped my August 1st B2B2B to a B2B2B2B.   The whole of August on Equinox.   Can’t wait.  

Wow! Maybe you will keep the hurricanes away because you’re having too much fun. We’re from Mobile, hope to see you onboard August 1!

Not elite or in a suite so I can’t help you…

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.

There has been NO testing …. We can get off at all the ports without a Celebrity excursion

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

There is a pasta station but it is not what I would think of…I would think of different noodles and different sauces… the station is Mac and cheese, veggie lasagna, and tomato sauce

Thanks for all the posts. How is the internet?

Stinks…. Hubby has to answer emails for work…. 11 pm it took him 1.5 hours to send two emails… I can get emails…. Read websites but not interact with them like login….

The first two nights of Dinner were slow… it is getting better and should have it flowing good by next cruise 🙂

 

Casino is loosening up… hubby won over 400 and a lady we met won 4700.

 

We are getting nightly gifts… a glass, Celebrity ball cap, coasters… it is very nice..
