We boarded the Celebrity Equinox on Saturday, July 30, 2022, in Fort Lauderdale. We were ready for our nine-day vacation to the Eastern Caribbean to relax and have fun!
Mike was glad to find out that there was no weight limit for luggage. he had one suitcase. I had a few suitcases, one for my clothes and accessories, one for makeup, a shoe bag, a garment bag for my dresses, a carry-on, a pocketbook, and a bag with snacks. I don't know what Mike would have done without his suitcase if there was a weight limit.
Mike and I have not been on vacation together for over ten years and we were ready to go and relax and that is exactly what we did. It was a nine-day cruise with stops in Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Tortola, St. Maarten, and Nassau.
We got off the ship in St. Maarten to meet friends who lived there and revisit the island we grew to love. We vacationed in St. Maarten for years it is our favorite island.
Aridan and Choirul treated us like royalty everynight.
My handsome date.
We had a table for two and everynight was date night.
Cruises are known for their delicious food. There is the main dining room, buffets, specialty restaurants, ice-cream and coffee cafes, lounges, pool bar and grill, and bars. We were so happy with the Silhouette main dining experience that we did not venture out to any of the specialty restaurants. We enjoyed our breakfasts, lunches, and late-night snacks in the Oceanview Cafe which is buffet-style. They had areas for all kinds of foods from different cultures. Pizza, pasta, sushi, curry, tacos, salads, vegan, hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks, appetizers, sandwiches, bread, soups, and desserts. Whatever you could think of they had.
Now everyone thinks you will gain weight on a cruise. mike lost three pounds and i lost one. we walked a lot on the ship and took the stairs instead of the elevator. so, take that cruise, eat the delicious food but then remember to exercise.
The Entertainment was phenomenal. On our first night they had a magician. Mike and I were chosen to be in his show. He was great and being a magician myself (well I entertain pre-schoolers) I still cannot figure out how he did his magic.
The broadway productions were outstanding incredible talent. They had a comedian who was so funny I laughed through his whole show. Our last night they had a girl who did a tribute to Whitney Houston, she was beautiful and her voice was amazing. If you closed your eyes you would have thought it was Whitney Houston.
I cannot say enough about the ship and the staff.
Mike and I look forward to our next cruise.
