Room Service on the Equinox

by Female Abroad

While onboard the Equinox, we were not planning on leaving our room for breakfast when we found out that room service was included (of course we did eventually) so we did end up trying quite a bit. I'm not sure if the list below is just for the concierge class and there are different ones given for different classes as well as different itineraries but at least this will give you an idea as to what to expect. Also, don't assume that the food will be steaming hot when it arrives as most of the times ours was lukewarm at best.

Delivery Time Options

  1. 6 - 6:30AM
  2. 6:30 - 7AM
  3. 7 - 7:30AM
  4. 7:30 - 8AM
  5. 8 - 8:30AM
  6. 8:30 - 9AM
  7. 9 - 9:30AM

They will call you before it arrives so you have time to get dressed or clear the table so they can put it down. You will also have to fill out the door card and have it hanging outside your stateroom before 2AM.
