Cool Equinox is the one

Having done 13 days on the new Equinox I just to say to you all..The EQUINOX ROCKS!!! No, I didn't think the art work around the ship compared to the Soltice which was so far my only negative comment The food, the crew, the officers, the whole Equinox experience convinces me that the ship is a "happy, happy ship and crew". The ship is very sophisticated, subtle ( bit too much) and what I want cruising for me to be..Yes, there will be a review as soon as I get my sea legs.

we travelled on the equinox last easter had a balocony suite service superb went on the 13 night ultimate carib cruise staff excellent food the same we had three balconies they opened them up for us so we had plenty of room. The indoor pool could do with a sliding roof hardly any body used it seems a shame. hope you have as good a time as we did. we travelled a very long way but were not dissapointed.

Wow - have things changes then. We just disembarked from the Equinox on Friday past and all I can say - food was awful. We did well up until and including salads. Main courses sucked. Cheapest cuts of meat possible smothered in sauces to hide the taste or I should say, lack of taste. Even the lobster had some pink sauce on it instead of drawn butter. Oh, and you needed a magnifying glass to see it. Half of a lobster tail?????? Anyway, terrible food.

I have read the review and I really enjoyed it. It is very well written and it certainly shows what an interesting intinerary that was.
I am very happy that you and Parrot Pop were able to do that cruise.

There was so much more to write about the ship and the ports. In retrospect Parrot Pop and I were able to see exactly what we wanted to see and during the cruise unknown to me I was quite ill... and now on the road to recovery. Can't wait until our next t/a cruise....maybe 2012..
