Celebrity Equinox

Second of Celebrity's stunning new Solstice superliners gets the Revolution makeover

Celebrity Equinox was officially christened and named in Southampton on 29 July, 2009, and was the second in the new 2,850-guest Solstice-class era of Celebrity ships.

The £700m ship, built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, was aimed at experienced cruisers wanting to try a new cruise experience.

Now, following a major transformation as part of the Celebrity Revolution, Celebrity Equinox now features many of the amenities to be found on the ground-breaking Edge-class ships.

These include:

  • The Retreat for suite guests, including The Retreat Sundeck,  an exclusive sun-soaked hideaway, and The Retreat Lounge (formerly Michael’s Club)
  • Qsine (formerly Silk Harvest) with the brand-exclusive Le Petit Chef and Friends and the original Le Petit Chef, two amazing dining experiences developed in partnership with TableMation and Skullmapping
  • A completely reimagined Passport Bar
  • Craft Social (formerly Gastrobar), a casual spot featuring more than 40 craft beers, wine and cocktails on tap
  • Refreshed staterooms and suites ship-wide, now all with luxurious king-sized Cashmere mattresses
  • The launch of a new partnership with the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, featuring S.T.E.M.-focused activations and unique, first-at-sea programming offered as part of the popular Camp at Sea for young cruisers.
  • Digital enhancements across the ship, such as the addition of RFID lock technology and pervasive Xcelerate Wi-Fi
  • Facial recognition technology with the implementation of the Celebrity Cruises app, enabling smooth port arrival and expedited boarding, plus additional features including guest-to-guest chat and digital room keys
  • New treatments and products at The Spa by Canyon Ranch
