Default Equinox is here!

Hello all!
I've just returned from a 2-day cruise onboard the Equinox: have never seen such a beautiful ship! See some pictures in the gallery section. We ate off the regular menu and the food in the main dining room was very good and very well presented. Food in Blu (breakfast), Bistro on 5 (Lunch) Tuscan Grill (Dinner) was outstanding, just like the overall service! And we saw the new Show called "Equinox" - absolutely loved it, almost felt like I was in Vegas seeing "KA" again! I envy anyone who gets to cruise on her before I do again!

This is so exciting! I haven't been on Solstice yet but I sure hope to be able to cruise on both in the future! I'm a huge fan of the m-class ships after sailing on Infinity and Millie.

HappySailing, thanks for posting! I remember you mentioning in another thread that you would be embarking soon. So glad to hear she's beautiful and you enjoyed your time!

I see there is a transatlantic from Rome next October and the price is unbeatable...thinking I may need to book this soon! 15-days on the new Equinox? Ahhhhhh!

Triton,
I can only do so many cruise. We usually go to visit my father-in-law in Italy at least once a year. He is originally from Tennessee, but when he retired from the US army he just cntinued to live in Italy, now that he has lost his Italian wife he will not come back to the US. Wants to stay nera his wife's resting place.

We will going to Italy this september and we are staying 3 nights in Paris before flying back home.
During the last 12 years we have visited Italy 14 times. We have also visited Germany, France, Spain. The Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxemburg and Porugal.

We have two cruises booked (Liberty OTS in nov. and Oasis in april).

We do want to book another cruise on Celebrity soon. My DW is torn between one of the new ships or doing another Millenium class ship. She loves all the Celebrity ships. I also like the Royal megaships.

I tell you again there are so many beautifull ships and so little time.

TM

Hi Triton,
I keep on looking at those Transatlantik sailings too and it makes me sick not ot have more time. Soon I'll be working 30 percent less and will have more time. Then I will be able to take advantage of those super deals. I saw a special on Vision OTS last april: 15 days Transatlantic eastbound, outside cabin for less than 300 Dollars! You can't stay home and feed yourself on that budget for two weeks, can you?

Hello Earl,
I got the chance to see an aft staeroom and was very pleasantly surprised how private the verandah was - not really that anyone could look down onto your balcony!

This is a picture of an aft sky suite
