Default Equinox added dates (2 threads merged)

Have spotted on the Southampton Port Authority website some new dates for Equinox to visit - 22nd July,30th July, and 1st August 2009. Looks as if the ship may be finished early? Are these likely to be available to book for paying passengers? I am guessing the 30th July will be a short cruise for travel agents but what about the 8 nights from 22nd July and 7 nights from 1st August?

The Equinox will be named sometime between 25th-31st July in Southampton,the exact date hasnt been announced yet I believe.

From what I have heard the Inaugural date is now the 31st July.

Default Best vantage point

Hi all, we're on Equinox Jan 10, but are going to see her in dock in August this year for a sneak preview. Anyone know where the best place to get a good view of her is? a park or something? want to take a pic-nic, see her off and wish away a few months in the summer sun (rain probably!).

Ooooh!! thankyou! This sounds like the perfect cruise for me. I'm booked on Equinox later on this year but now can't go, this would be a great swap!

I haven't had the email and I can't find any mention of it on Celebrity's site yet .... are there any prices?

I'll ring my travel agent first thing in the morning. Fingers crossed they let me switch!

Is there a web site that I can go to and see the Equinox build? Like we could all do for the Solstice?

My TA phoned yesterday morning, saying the new maiden was the 31st July to the Fjords and we had to decide that day whether to transfer or not because it was going on sale today. Strange indeed it's now tomorrow. I can't transfer sadly but it will still be a lot of first calls.

Thank you very much! Does anyone know if "X" is making any changes on the Equinox so that there will be 'some' differences between the two ships? Colors? Furnishings? Carpeting? I hope they do something different.

Thankyou abbafan

We are currently booked in SV cabins so that gives me a rough idea. I'm gutted that we have to cancel our October cruise but at least we still get to sail on Equinox

Inside and Oceanview on the original 8th Aug maiden were sold out so I presume they all transferred.
