"Celebrity Equinox, launched in 2009 as the second of five Solstice-class sisters, has all the signature Solstice touches: multiple dining venues (like the spa-restaurant Blu and continental Murano), a gelateria and enhanced coffee shop, and tons of balcony cabins. Yet it retains the original innocence of life before the commercialization of the ships' signature top-deck green space, the Lawn Club.

"While a few more added-fee features (like the cabanas and Lawn Club Grill on Reflection and Silhouette) might not seem like much of a change, Equinox is a better place for their absence.

"When you sit outside on the real-grass lawn for a sailaway or take in the free hot-glass show at the Corning Museum of Glass pavilion, you become aware of a communal feel on the top deck that's  reminiscent of summertime in a small town. Ultimately, the friendliness of that stretch of grass and the revelatory stripped-down design of the Lawn Club on Equinox is replicated again and again onboard the ship. Crewmembers are as friendly as they come. Thoughtfully designed delights await in nearly every public space, from the art-adorned walls of the Ensemble Lounge on Deck 5 to the adults-only Solarium pool on Deck 12, with its "living wall" of plants and dancing fountain.

"Walk through Equinox's other main public spaces, and it becomes clear why Celebrity chose the metaphor of light and sun for the Solstice-class ships. From the ship's heart on Deck 3, glass elevators sweep you up through a soaring central atrium that reaches, through 10 decks, for the sun and sky. On the way to the top, a tree, floating in mid-air and soaked in sunlight, and the words "Here Comes The Sun," written on consecutive balcony walls, prepare you for a bright, windowed reception on the ship's uppermost decks. The curved, winding walkways suspended above the pool deck, the solarium-enclosed pool and the Sky Observation Lounge add to the airy and bright ambience of the ship's top-deck spaces.

"Bottom to top, Equinox evokes a luxury high-rise hotel. The ship's light, bright design and friendly feel create a continuity and harmony of elements that is unequaled on other big ships."

San Juan, Puerto Rico

One of the largest islands in the Eastern Caribbean, Puerto Rico's landscape encompasses mountains, underground caves, coral reefs, white-sand beaches and an incredibly massive rain forest that supplies fresh water to most of the island. At the same time San Juan, the capital of the commonwealth, is a big city with a bustling business district, glitzy resorts and casinos, as well as one of the most stunning examples of colonial life in the Western world. 

 

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

When the Spanish closed their colonial fort on St. Maarten in 1648, a few Dutch and French soldiers hid on the island and decided to share it. Soon after, the Netherlands and France signed a formal agreement to split St. Maarten in half, as it is today. Philipsburg displays its Dutch heritage in its architecture and landscaping. The island offers endless stretches of beach, beautiful landscapes and great shopping. 

 

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Whether you're a history buff or just want to take in the scenery, be sure to visit the 350-year-old estate, Romney Manor, once owned by a British earl. The beautiful grounds include magnificent gardens, exotic plants and an amazing African Saman tree, which covers half an acre and is believed to be as old as the estate itself.
