This was our first time travelling with our family and we enjoyed it tremendously. The overall experience was wonderful and the staff were all friendly and very helpful and most importantly the ship was very clean. I would recommend to friends and family to take a cruise on the Equinox.

Ship tip

Book excursions early if you plan on taking excursion through the cruise. Most of the excursions for Grand Cayman were sold out, especially if traveling with a big group (we had 13 of us).

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

4 out of 5
Did not spend too much time in the port of Miami. Only did a tour of the city and visited outdoor shops and restaurants.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Other than the showers and humidity, we had a good time in Key West. We rode on jet skis and went shopping.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Costa Maya was a nice little place. We went on a private tour to the Chacchoben ruins and spent some time on the beach.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Lots to do in Cozumel. We went on an ATV excursion to Jade Caverns and snorkeling afterwards. The only unfortunate thing was that our tour guide for snorkeling did not speak English.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Loved Grand Cayman. Did scuba diving. The time spent in the island was too short as we disembarked from the ship at 11:45a (due to the time waiting for the tendering) and returned at 4:30p. There was not enough time to do two exursions or do some shopping.


5 out of 5
Very easy and fast as we took care of our accounts the previous night. Only problem is the number of elevators (too few).
