HAL False Advertising

Sail Date: August 17, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Very bad room. I ordered the advertised window room. Was offered unobstructed for $160.00 more. I agreed. When I saw my room, it was on the walking desk. People walking by. Look up to see the life boats. On the left side a pillar. You could see the ocean, if you looked across 10+ feet of deck. My wife closed the curtains for the trip. We might as well have been on the inside. Then to make things worse, at 5:30 in the morning they started talking, moving chairs and cleaning the deck.    Not the agents fault. HAL advertises this as "unobstructed.

If you've been to Canada, save your time. The ship does not dock near downtown.


For those who like a drink before dinner, happy hour is nice. Buy 1, get 1 for $1.00. Nice to have a Catholic priest on board.
