We went on this cruise after staying on own own for 3 days in Barcelona. Embarkation was easier and faster than ever! The Captains Club lunch in the main dining room was quiet and fast - menu selection was limited but there was chicken, ... Read more

We did a 2-B-2 cruise on Equinox July-August from Rome to Barcelona and back. The cruise was absolutely lovely and so close to luxury you can get in a ship for nearly 3000 passengers and affordable price. The ship is in beautiful shape and ... Read more

I chose the cruise because of a deal that came across my computer, and then kept adding so who knows if it was a deal or not. LOL. Departing from Istanbul added to the mystique of the cruise, and we loved Istanbul, the city was beautiful ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was a Jet Set Sail package from Stansted. The transfer from the UK to the ship was first class and completely hassle free. At no point were we left to fend for ourselves, the meet and greet team at Athens ... Read more
