St. Maarten snorkeling misadventure in Philipsburg. On September 13, 2021 my wife and I purchased “Ultimate beach and snorkeling adventure” from the Celebrity Equinox cruises ship for $94.50/person. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we were not allowed to step outside the port area without the cruise purchased excursion. We had done other snorkeling already on St. John and I stated in my prior posting that it was not much to see. On the Philipsburg trip twenty-three passengers loaded on a speed boat and were looking forward to snorkeling in Simpson Bay Lagoon. What a disappointment. Absolutely nothing. Few of us were able to locate a couple fish and that was it. St. John’s snorkeling at Buck Island was just a little better scenery in comparison-to this nothingness. Total disappointment. On the way back to the ship our boat stopped for about 40 minutes at the beach and this was by miles better place to locate at least a few varieties of fish. We had good time relaxing on the beach and very good snorkeling near the boulders within about 100 feet from the beach. We canceled our upcoming snorkeling Basseterre, St. Kitts priced at $93 and purchase Carambola beach break for $39. As usual, I am not concentrating on historical or visual aspects of our trips. It is plenty available in many publications. Just the practical info. Lesson learned - all offered and promoted snorkeling (at least what was experienced by us) was not even close to match less costly but more enjoyable snorkeling from the beaches. Good travels.

This was our first experience on a Celebrity cruise-and it was delightful! The ship is gorgeous and so full of surprises and conveniences at every turn. The entertainment is largely centered around live music, and we were never disappointed. Eddy, the cruise director was absolutely the best-he seemed to be everywhere, and I wonder if he ever slept! He was so upbeat, and hilariously funny. The last day, he did a presentation of "Things to know about life on a cruise ship" that was absolutely marvelous. There were dance lessons by the pool, solo guitar performance, a glass blowing station and trivia contests constantly. There are lots of guides for assistance locating the area you are looking for-in every elevator, every turn, models of the ship in the foyers-so helpful for those of us who are directionally challenged! The Oceanview Cafe was out of this world! There are some changes due to Covid-no helping yourself, but instead you hold your plate out and the server loads it up. But no fear-you could have as much as you wanted-the servers were always asking if they gave you enough. All the food items were labeled for dietary restiricted-gluten free is a must for us, and this was so appreciated. The dessert choices were just out of this world, and every day there was a new gluten free cake. The ship was sailing at 50% capacity, so this made it so enjoyable and safe. We could always get a lounge chair and in the hot tub when we wanted. The crew was constantly cleaning, and hand sanitizer was available everywhere. This trip was definitely a welcome experience for us, as we had cancelled many trips over the past year-our first year of retirement. We hope and plan to continue with Celebrity.

We were going through old photos and remembered the cruise with Celebrity Equinox just before the lockdown. The trip was absolutely wonderful. Celebrity seem to be able to provide little spaces for one or two people to read or just talk anywhere on the ship. Whether you are in a restaurant, poolside, or event rooms staff work around you 24/7 All the rest on this cruise - the food and drink, courtesy of staff, easy of embarking, social eventing, were all fantastic. It is worth sailing with Celebrity!!

Like all other 2021 cruises thus far ours scheduled for March was cancelled. We received the notification no 12th January 2021 and were give three options. After some discussion we opted for a full refund. We advised our Travel Agent (Ramsay Travel) on 20/01/21. we received the cruise refund on 29th January through our agent and the supplementary costs (Excursions etc) direct from Celebrity on 2nd February. The whole process only took 10, yes 10, working days. Many congratulations and thanks to Celebrity Cruises and Ramsay Travel for their efficiency! We will be back as soon as we can.

This was our first cruise ever, and this was a great cruise line & ship to start with. We booked on of Celebrity's promotions, which included a drink package, tips, WiFi, and ONC. The food was great, and I did the glass blowing class onboard. Our ports were Key West & Cozumel. Cozumel was ok (did a snorkeling excursion), but Key West was surprisingly fun (we did a bike tour excursion). We were impressed enough to book more cruises with Celebrity (which of course were all canceled due to COVID), but we'll be back in 2021!
