Celebrity Equinox – superb

Well, first time on Celebrity – went with an open mind. Tried their Jet Set Sail package from Stanstead – EXCELLENT. Valet parking and superb lounge when we go to Stanstead. All checked in and on plane in half an hour. Priority borading at the port of Piraeus. The ship was VERY CLEAN – I spied cleaners EVERYWHERE, and nice waiters to squirt your hands at every twist and turn with cleansing alcohol!
The buffet was a revelation – very large area of clean, well laid out hot / cold stations, with every type of food imaginable! Meals in the restaurant were also superb – special mention for Marina and her team. Once we had go over the requests to upgrade to the premium drinks package, we found that the classic drinks package would cater to most people’s needs. DID NOT APPLY TO ROOM SERVICE, though! Covered all speciality coffees as well. Loads of activities on board ship. I ESPECIALLY liked the glass blowing – yes, I will say that again THE GLASS BLOWING!! Not too sure about a crucible full of molten glass at 2000 degrees centigrade, but I’m still alive! All in all a very good ship and excellent staff.
