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…
Scenic River Cruises and Scenic Tours may not be household brands in the USA but they are in Australia, Canada and the UK. Recently entering the US market with their river ship division, Scenic brings another luxury product to the growing fleet of river ships. Interestingly the owner of Scenic is pausing his river ship fleet at 16 and now concentrating on ocean exploration ships with his first over the top luxury ship currently under construction.
Scenic started concentrating on the Australian tour market and built their first river ship in 2008, she was dubbed a space ship because of all the space she offers compared to other ships.
