Celebrity Equinox

I had the opportunity to recently sail for 3 nights on the Celebrity Equinox out of Miami with a Nassau port of call. I hadn’t been on a Celebrity ship for about 9 months and I personally always enjoy cruising with Celebrity. This cruise was for the 2018 Celebrity Cruises Corporate & Incentive Advisory Board of which I am a member.

The Equinox was built in 2009 and the second in the Solstice Class of ships. Carrying 2,850 guests she is consider a mid-size ship compared to most newly build ships today, but with 12 bars and 9 restaurants she will easily keep you wined and dined for a week…


Celebrity Edge — By Steve Bloss

Celebrity’s newest and certainly flashiest ship, Edge, is the first in a new class of ship, and it takes everything the line values — food, design, and adult-focused comfort — to the next level.

If you are one of those people who says “I don’t cruise” think again! I was invited to join a 2-night pre-inaugural sailing on Celebrity’s revolutionary brand new ship Edge. This ship is unique in every way and sets the bar high for the entire cruise industry: Contemporary zen-like decor; immersive theater; the Magic Carpet hydraulic deck that serves as pop-up bar, tender station or poolside…


Celebrity Edge — By Tara Carpenter 

We’re doing a 7 night Eastern Caribbean out of Ft Lauderdale. Now this is only her 6th voyage post COVID and we are at about 50-60% capacity. So needless to say things are still not back to normal. All I can say about the pre-cruising process is be prepared to be flexible and have a little bit of grace. Things are still ever changing, and just remember the ship and port staff are not the ones making the rules. Our boarding experience was perfectly fine and we had zero issues but this was not the case for everyone. However, it was handled well by Celebrity, ship staff, and Captain Kate and I think at the end of the day people were happy with how it was dealt with.


Celebrity Summit

As a member of Celebrity’s Advisory Board we were invited for our annual meeting in San Juan to be the first to preview the totally renovated Summit. It shouldn’t be amazing what 58 million, 38 days and thousands of men and man hours can do but it still is! The end result is a totally new ship and I mean NEW.

Having chartered the ship several times in past years I knew this ship until I walked on the new and improved Summit. I was totally lost, as where the crew members that were not with the ship while in dry dock. This is most total refit I have ever seen. Celebrity is trying to bring all of the ships up…
