Every cruise is memorable. However, taking a Grand or Grand World cruise is exceptional. It is the quality of the food, the low ratio of crew to passengers, entertainment, the many extra amenities and the level of service. Also the ports are so exotic. This year on a HAL Grand World, I visited such destinations as Sri Lanka, Bali, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Israel, Dubai, Oman, Petra, Jordan, Suez Canal and stayed overnight in a thatched cottage over a lagoon in French Polynesia. It was a dream of a lifetime and I hope to take another such cruise again in the near future.
