A Mediterranean voyage on the Celebrity Equinox, Day 1

We're off for a 13-day Mediterranean cruise aboard the Celebrity Equinox.The ship,which will serve as hotel for about 2,800 passengers, left Barcelona yesterday and will dock in Malta tomorrow. From there we're headed for Greece, Turkey and Italy, ending the voyage in Barcelona.

This is a premier cruise line, not a Seabourn, Crystal or Silverseas, but with exceptional food and a spacious stateroom, the Equinox will be a top tier vacation venue.

I'll be posting here about the trip as we make way through the Mediterranean. Though November 2, it's warm with temps expected to be near 80 as we approach Malta.
Traveler tips: 
* There are no irons in the staterooms. Some say they are not allowed on board. Prepare to send your items for pressing and they will try to return them by dinner the first night. Luggage is delivered between 2 and 3 pm the day of embarkation, so it may be a problem getting clothes pressed in time for an early dinner.
* Guest Relations will change dollars into the currency of countries on the itinerary.
