Equinox - Very pleased

Sail Date: November 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Other

First cruise since our honeymoon 45 years ago! We were very pleased with Equinox. Cabin was excellent, staff very personable and attentive. I am a very good cook and was a little leery of what we would encounter, but the food in the main dining room was of a high standard and the variety was good. Did not try the optional restaurants. One night we were late for dinner so went to the Oceanview cafeteria and found whole roasted young pig! What an unexpected treat. Cafeteria was much better than we expected it to be.

I don't think the shore excursions were a good value. We took only one arranged through the ship and wished we hadn't. If you are at all comfortable making your own plans, do so. We had a private guide in Istanbul and Ephesus (through Ephesus Deluxe) and got a better experience at lower price. You don't need a guide or leader at all in Athens, Santorini or Mykonos.

All aspects of embarkation, disembarkation, ports were very well organized and More efficient. We were really impressed by this.

My wife and I each had medical emergencies that were handled very well if expensively by the ship's med staff. Less
