January 2015 - Nieuw Amsterdam to Caribbean - Eastern
I was disappointed in this particular cruise as I'd just cruised the same ship, same destination points in November and this time brought along 2 novice cruisers to introduce them to HAL. I didn't realize there was a mini-charter aboard, for which (from my understanding) the entertainment line-up was changed. Rather than one of their great production shows, they featured only two of the smaller shows, with no set change-up, nor storyline so indicative of musical theatre productions. The EXPLORER at the start of the week listed the production show; however, later in the week, they changed it up. I believe this came from the corporate level and had nothing to do with either the cast or the entertainment crew on board....I don't appreciate appeasing some at the expense of others. Not so keen on recommending HAL if this is what they are going to be doing.
