Overall good quality, a bit slow pace on board.

Our Equinox experience is very good, facility, faculty, service, all are superior without question.   We do have a few observations:

- We are used to activities like dance classes lasting 45min - 1 hour long.  There are not many on Equinox, and when there is, it's only 30 min long, seems it's over when we just warmed up.

- The photos are too expensive.  We have a group of 10, and would love to buy some of the pictures if the price is in the $15-20 range.  I am sure a lot of other customers would think the same way.

- The overall food is good in the dining room.  But there was only one time shrimp/scallop dinner offering throughout the 13 days trip.

Cabin / Stateroom
Very good size, good layout, good storage. Bathroom is large and clean, shower is strong. Could use a little better soap, bath and shampoo gels.

Onboard Activities
- We are used to activities like dance classes lasting 45min - 1 hour long.  There are not many on Equinox, and when there is, it's only 30 min long, seems it's over when we just warmed up.

Entertainment
The shows Life, Destiny, Elysium, and two Matinee shows are nice and we appreciate the efforts and dedication of the performers. But the songs and dances are not very popular to most people, thus hard to appreciate or enjoy 100%.
Unlike the "the other guys" who can make all audience excited because everyone is familiar with what they sing.
- In other ships, We've enjoyed multiple bands in bars and lounges where we can enjoy jazz or light rock music and dance to it if desired.  We don't see that on Equinox.  The only one always plays in the central (forgot the name) is OK, but all of us think the lady singer's voice (the slim one) is very low, we can hardly heard her whenever she performs, it's not very motivating to enjoy her singing, let along dance to it.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
The overall food is good in the dining room.  But there was only one time shrimp/scallop dinner offering throughout the 13 days trip.
Other ships we've been cruised with often have special event day where they do festive cookout on the deck, such as BBQ, Paella,
