Live Trip Report - Celebrity Equinox - Jan 27 thru Feb 3

Recommended Posts

I also tied the pork belly. The outside was crispy - it was good - but a bit odd.

Main course was my lamb and mom’s veal - both tender and cooked well - but mom actually preferred her filet tonight.

The best part of any meal is coming up - dessert!

Compliments of the chef - macaroons are my favorite - poor mom didn’t have a chance - I snatched on to it right away.

Rest of dessert...my soufflé was fantastic!!! Mom said hers was also really good. Best deserts so far.

Overall we enjoyed the experience - I relaxed as the evening went on. It was more then a meal - it was an experience!

Thanks for your great review! I hope your weather improves, but sounds like its not hindering you 2 in any way.

We'll be on the boat as you get off on Sat the 3rd. Do you happen to see any massage specials? 11 cruises and the hubby and I have never had one, and we thought we might try one this cruise. If they have any specials, that would be even better. If you happen to see anything let me know. Dont go out of your way to find out. Thank you!

Thanks for the great review. We are 14 night Reflection Dec 7 2018. Are you enjoying most of the entertainment?

 

 

I really liked the Beyond the Podium speaker and the 2nd night - which was Uptown - so it has been hit or miss.

If you see a Caribe Guinness on the drink men, can you tell me the price. DH is wondering what the up charge might be from the Classic package.

 

Loving the review and reliving 2 past cruises on her!

A standard Guinness is $8 at the Gastro Pub - where would I find a Caribe Guinness?

It is a drink that should be on a bar menu. Not sure if they offer them or not.

 

Thanks for the price of Guinness.

Save your money and have a massage before your vacation. I have had massages for years and endured 2 at sea - both complimentary from our TA. Never again. The massage itself is ok but the hard-sell after ward ruins the experience. Be aware that even on special they are double the cost of one near home.

Hello Thank you for the review, my family and I will be on March 24th, I do have a question. On the daily sheets you posted I did not see a Slot Tournament, was there one.

A post cruise massage makes the return a little less harsh too :)

Hey CLJ(sorry I haven’t seen your name posted anywhere)!

I know it’s a big ask but any chance you could snap a picture of the slush menu/prices next time you are there? Loving your review so far! :)

We just got off Equinox when you got aboard - Saturday 1/27 - your pictures make me want to go back.

 

World Class Bar had best cocktails, although at Premium pkg prices, try the Strawberry Fields, not as sweet as it looks. Enjoy

Did you stop in San Juan? If so where did you dock? Downtown old SAN Juan or at the airport dock

Tendering - got my ticket at 10:28 am and was #42 - they were on 18. 11:40 am we got on the tender and I am sitting on the tender as they load it. We are just going to walk around town today.

 

Tender loaded at 11:57 finally loaded.
