Great cruise on a great ship stopping at great ports! We will be back to the Equinox and hopefully the glass artists will still be in residence. We also look forward to the excellent food and crew.

Basseterre, St. Kitts

The "Fast Cat"snorkeling tour was great except for the lunch stop. Hot sand without shoes burned our feet and the lunch was just barely OK. Snorkeling was excellent!

Bridgetown, Barbados

5 out of 5
Island tour was fun as we saw different parts of the island that we had not visited before.

Roseau, Dominica

5 out of 5
We visited the old sugar plantation which is now an archaeological dig. The archaeologist was phenomenal with a wealth of information about the history of the island. Be sure to take this one!!

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

5 out of 5
Beach day on St Maarten can't be beat!! Off the ship, a short boat shuttle to the beach and you are there! For hearty types, you can even walk to the beach - white sand and gentle waves!!!


4 out of 5
Very smooth but Ft Lauderdale customs can be a bit slow.
