Just returned after 7 nights on the refurbished Equinox. We are experienced cruisers and this was our 4th cruise on Equinox but 1st in several years. The staff may have been the most friendly and helpful that we have ever experienced. This was our first time using Select Dining and it worked out well for us. We had no trouble making reservations on line in advance of our cruise and the seating was always on time. Hostess was great. Food quality has improved greatly—-we believe it was the best of any past cruises on any line. On two occasions we decided to eat our dinner at the Oceanview Cafe because of the variety of foods available. Excellant! For years I have vowed to never eat a steak again on a cruise ship but Oceanview Cafe changed me—-the ribeye was cooked perfectly and the meat quality was very good. Stateroom was clean and well designed as always. We had a balcony on the 9th floor. Our stateroom attendant was great. Entertainment was very good. The production shows have improved with very talented performers and finally some songs the passengers can relate to. New terminal in Ft Lauderdale was very nice and easy to embark. We actually were in our stateroom by 12:00 noon—a first for us. On departure day the trip through Customs was much different with all electronic recognition. The long lines have gone away!!! If you are looking for a great ship with friendly staff and great food you will enjoy Equinox. We certainly did.
