The equinox is a beautiful ship. We arrived at the port about noon and quickly registered and boarded the ship. We went directly to the buffet for lunch. As soon as we finished eating, they announced our rooms were ready. Our checked bags arrived at our stateroom about 3 pm. We unpacked and then attended the mandatory drill. The crew was fantastic and provided excellent service in our stateroom as well as the dining room. The food in the main dining room was excellent so we never visited any specialty restaurants. The food in the oceanview buffet was good as well and we ate breakfast there several times. This cruise was port intensive and we spent much time ashore. It was a nice to come back to cold washcloths and water after our day. The ports were all excellent. We did not take any ship excursions, instead booking private excursions with members of our roll call. Disembarkation was smooth and we quickly found our bags and left the port for our tour of Barcelona.

The cabin was clean and we there is plenty of room for storage. The closet had many hangers for clothes. We stored our luggage and dirty laundry under the bed. The bathroom also had plenty of storage. Nice bar in the shower for shaving legs.

  • Private Tour
    The tour guide met us after we disembarked the ship and stored our luggage. We saw the mirador and the olympic stadium. Our next stop was at La Sagrada Familia viewing the outside. Our final stop was at Park Guell. Lovely!! Our tour guide then dropped us and our luggage off at our hotel and recommended several ways to get around the city. I highly recommend this tour

  • Corsica (Ajaccio)
    Took the bus tour around town. The farmers market was interesting with many cheeses, meats and fruits for sale. The port was very crowded with four ships in the port that day. The beach looks lovely and I highly recommend a visit to one of the beaches.
