Celebrity Equinox which is a cruise ship operated by Celebrity Cruises has introduced a new burger fee menu.

First reported by Cruise Critic, members posted that the burger venue located at the ships Mast Grill is no longer free. The cruise line has introduced a for-fee venue on the top deck where a variety of high-quality burgers are served. Prices start from $4.95 for a four-ounce burger and $9.95 for an eight-ounce burger. There are also side extras included in the new priced offering with a choice of fries or onion rings.

The new fee menu was apparently launched on the second day of the cruise which began from Miami, Florida on July 16. The free burger menu is still available at the Celebrity cruise ships Oceanview Cafe buffet but only time will tell if this will be phased out. No matter what, the new fee menu won’t go down well for guests currently on Celebrity Equinox and on upcoming sailings.

For now, the cruise line is not rolling out the changes on others vessel which feature the Mast Grill but as always we’ll keep a close eye on things. The only other ship to have a for-fee burger menu in the fleet is Celebrity Constellation after its May refurbishment. A new Top Deck Burger Venue was added where passengers can order gourmet burgers for a fee.

Celebrity Equinox is a Solstice class vessel at 122,000 gross tons and carrying 2,800 passengers at double occupancy. The ship’s current 7-night Western Caribbean voyage will end in Port Miami on July 23.
