March 2015 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Westerdam
In the past I had heard that HA was know to be a daytime centric vessel with a older demographic. THis was so true. Now I'm not a 20 something who was looking for a 4 am pool party, I'm pushing 50 but can still stay awake past midnight. The bars all closed by 1am and the casino was closed at 11:45 the first night at sea and never open past 1:00am. The specialty restaurants were the better choice as the main dining room fare was mediocre. The ship was clean and the staff attentive as long as you didn't ask for anything extra. We chose HA because of the itinerary and the cost to "value" based on reviews. It's a 3 start experience nothing more nothing less.
