Sail to the Caribbean, Europe and the Mediterranean or take a transatlantic cruise on Celebrity Equinox, a member of Celebrity Cruises’ Solstice Class who is instantly recognisable by her stunning exterior.
Celebrity Equinox offers her guests the finest in culture, dining and experiences. One of the most exciting signature innovations on board is the fabulous Lawn Club, where you can feel authentic turf between your toes, whilst enjoying garden games such as croquet and bowls. Let the crew pack you a picnic and spend the whole day lazing in the sunshine with the ocean in your sights.
Elsewhere on the ship, passengers with a competitive edge can play basketball and table tennis on deck, or participate in trivia contests for some light-hearted fun with like-minded guests. You can take your love of art a step further by not just appreciating it, but experiencing it in a unique way. The Hot Glass Show is a signature feature aboard Celebrity Cruises ships; watch and learn as professional glassblowers put on a one-of-a-kind exhibition from the renowned Corning Museum of Glass.
If your passions are geared towards food and wine, Mixology 101 will be appeal no end. Food and wine pairing classes and star chef cooking competitions will take your taste buds on brand new culinary journey. Sample some new flavours and show off your newfound knowledge at your next dinner party back home.
So much incredible food and wine can be a nightmare for the waistline. Luckily, Celebrity Equinox is home to one of the most innovative and well-equipped fitness centres on the seas. Pump up the pace and work up a sweat or channel your inner zen with yoga classes led by professional trainers. Tour de Cycle classes will get the blood pumping and wellness seminars will teach well-informed lessons that you can use long after you get off the ship.
When the gym is a daily occurrence at home, there is something indulgent about leaving your trainers behind and making a date with the spa instead. The world-renowned Canyon Ranch Spa Club brings ultimate relaxation to the seas, with a comprehensive treatment list promising to pamper you to perfect. Have tight shoulders soothed and tired eyes revived; it’s all part of the modern luxury offered by Celebrity Cruises. If the constant whir of technology fuels your workdays, book an exclusive treatment created by digital guru Randi Zuckerburg. Designed to help you switch off, relax and unwind, you’ll find it easier than ever to ignore those emails. You’re on holiday after all.
Further indulgences come via a little retail therapy and you will discover luxury and sophistication in spades at Celebrity Equinox’s on board stores. Go overboard for the glittering gemstones that will finish off your formal night attire or treat yourself to a new fragrance, the perfect reminder of an amazing holiday once the ship itself is a distant memory. Amongst the designer brands available on board are Tag Heauer, Calvin Klein, Armani and Versace.
While days are spent exploring, evenings are spent relaxing. Prepare to be entertained by a plethora of shows in Celebrity Equinox’s plush theatre, where comedy acts and musicians take to the stage nightly. Take a front row seat and prepare for entertainment on a par with that in the best theatres of the world.
When night falls, the adult-only Solarium transforms into a Miami-esque hotspot known as Liquid, for a one night pool party complete with acrobats, neon lighting and a live DJ. For a pre-dinner drink or late night tipple, head to one of the ship’s many bars and lounges, such as the Sky Observation Lounge or Ensemble Lounge. The ice-topped bar of Martini Bar and Crush is the home to high-energy shows by Celebrity Equinox’s master mixologists, while over in the Molecular Bar signature drinks include the thoughtfully named Berry Patch, Dragonfly and Coming up Roses. Choose to sit back and relax or dance the night away in the sophisticated nightspot of Qasar, where the DJ will mix the very best of dance and nightclub favourites.
Hit the casino before turning in for the night and see if you come up trumps with a big win on the roulette table, slots machines or card games.
Glamour, impeccable service and a tempting menu make Silhouette, the ship’s Main Dining Room, a favourable option for luxurious breakfasts and lingering dinners. The chic restaurant is dominated in spectacular style by a huge crystal droplet chandelier, putting the finishing touches to the Hollywood worthy interiors. Celebrity Cruises’ passengers can dine on food comparable to that in some of the world’s finest restaurants, with changing menus promising something new to tempt you each evening.
If you’re looking for a spectacular culinary experience, try one of Celebrity Equinox’s Speciality Dining restaurants. For sophisticated French cuisine choose to dine in Murano, whilst over in Tuscan Grill the passion and flavour of traditional Italian food has been thrown a contemporary twist. If you’d prefer to experience cuisine from further east, Silk Harvest is the place for you. Here you can experience flavours of China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam, rounded off with an oriental twist and grand views through vast floor-to-ceiling windows.
More casual fare can be enjoyed in the Oceanview Café where you can help yourself to food from across the globe. Pasta, pizza, stir-fry and sushi are in abundance, and you’ll find dedicated cooking stations offering regional specialities each evening. Quality and quantity go hand-in-hand and there is something for the whole family to enjoy at lunch, dinner and even late into the night.
There are different levels of evening dress aboard Celebrity Equinox; smart casual and formal wear. All speciality restaurants operate a smart casual dress code, with women guests often opting for dresses, skirts and smart trousers, and men choosing to wear trousers and open neck shirts. Formal attire is required in the main dining room on formal evenings, which usually occur twice each week. The occasion is taken as an opportunity to dress up, with women wearing cocktail dresses and chic separates, while men opt for tuxedos and dinner suits.
