Celebrity Equinox

The Retreat® isn’t a place. It isn’t an amenity. It isn’t a service. It’s all of that and more. The Retreat is an unparalleled vacation experience that includes every stunning suite, a private restaurant, an exclusive lounge, and a sundeck that rivals any high-end resort.
As a guest of The Retreat, you’ll also enjoy a long list of thoughtfully curated amenities that start with premium drinks and premium Wi-Fi, in addition to a private restaurant and exclusive lounge.

There’s no better way to find your ultimate state of wellbeing than with the ocean as your backdrop. Start your holistic wellness journey with an incredible night’s rest on our exclusive eXhale® bedding, made with cashmere. Get your endorphins flowing with first-at-sea fitness programs. Escape to The Spa and discover more than 120 rejuvenating treatments, including Destination Inspired Treatments as unique as the places we visit. At the heart of The Spa, our SEA Thermal Suite and Persian Garden are playgrounds for the senses—and complimentary for guests of our AquaClass® staterooms and Aqua Sky Suites. We’ve thought of everything you need to nourish your mind, body, and spirit—miles at sea.​

This sophisticated restaurant with a wide range of globally-inspired dishes created by a Michelin-starred chef will provide the fine dining experience you love while you’re on vacation. The airy Main Restaurant offers exquisite menu selections, which change nightly to give you a variety of classic and contemporary choices. And the service? Legendary.

Celebrity was one of the first cruise lines to offer a spa restaurant. We saw an opportunity to create an extension of our industry’s leading spa experience by introducing the Spa Café.

Once-in-a-while something comes along that re-invents dining and you just have to see it to believe it. We’ve brought the table top to life in a fantastic fusion of entertainment and dining.

Inspired by the ambiance of European cafés, muted sepia tones and pops of citrus yellow bring this space to life. Follow the irresistible aroma of Lavazza espresso, or choose from over a dozen premium hot teas from the innovative Tea Forté. Daily specialties include French pastries, gourmet coffees, and elegant desserts. Café al Bacio also features an authentic Gelateria with artisan flavors and fresh fruit sorbettos—in piccolo or grande, whatever you choose.

Relaxing and inviting, its position right off the grand foyer means this may be the first, but not the last, place you stop to sink into a chair and enjoy a cocktail. Enjoy classical music from our string quartet, or kick off your evening with jazz, Big Band, and other popular music.

Comfort food and craft beer enthusiasts rejoice. Craft Social offers over 40 handcrafted boutique beer selections, creative cocktails and a wide selection of a la carte, gourmet comfort food and bar bites that are so satisfying you could make a meal of them. If you prefer wine with your eats, our wine list presents an impressive selection by the glass or bottle. With inviting entertainment and great music, Craft Social offers an atmosphere of casual sophistication.

Silk Harvest

Murano is not only home to the finest, French-inspired cuisine, but to unparalleled service and a sophisticated, warm setting. If you’re looking for the ultimate in modern luxury on your Celebrity cruise, you just found it.

The world-class chefs, waiting staff and sommeliers at Murano delight in surprising you and exceeding your expectations; whether that’s with the impressive tableside lobster presentation, expert wine recommendations or delectable desserts.  Expect the unexpected: classic, timeless dishes are often given a unique, contemporary twist to keep you guessing. Like everything else, the presentation is always impeccable, and we can assure you that the dishes taste as good as they look.

The menu at Murano takes its inspiration from the timeless allure of continental French cuisine. Our chefs know the ingredients which perfectly complement each and every dish. We love the pork belly with parsnip pureé, caramelized apples and calvados jus.
