We are three days into our seven day crossing of the Atlantic. The weather has been wonderful, varying between 24 and 27 degrees every day so far. The seas have been relatively calm. As this is the first time I’ve crossed the Atlantic on a ship I have nothing to compare it to, so I’m going to say it is wonderfully calm.
The food and overall service on the Equinox has been fantastic. I have diligently been working out every morning, but I am pretty sure I’m on the losing end of the calorie count. More from the alcohol then the food. But hey, it’s a cruise, so I am going to enjoy myself.
A couple of days ago I wasn’t paying attention when we were out on deck. Ended up with a rather bizarre red burn pattern on my stomach and chest. In hindsight sun screen would have been a good idea.
Life on board is rather interesting. The people watching is first rate, with an incredible diversity of individuals. We are certainly among the younger people on board. What amazes me is despite a beautiful ship with super service and wonderful weather, some people always find something to whine about. Mind you that would be a them problem, not a me problem.
Finally got to the dancing lounge last night. It was 80’s night, and what a blast it was. The band was nothing short of phenomenal! Danced to nearly every song on a packed dance floor. Had a great time. On the subject of music, the entertainment has been first class. From Pop, to Classical Strings, to Flamenco Guitar it has been absolutely top notch.
