Review summary

When a friend booked this cruise for a group of us, we had only mid-level expectations thinking this was an older ship on an older line with older clientele.

What we found was a beautiful ship on a line that promoted excellent service with a nice mix of age groups.  HAL's attention to detail (embarkation, debarkation, touches in the room, etc) exceeded other cruise lines we have been on.  The food was good with a few exceptional evenings.  The entertainment (especially the dueling piano bar and the BB King All Stars) was word class.  The captain did a great job getting us close to the glaciers in Glacier Bay.  He also had a great sense of humor.  Our suite (Neptune) was spacious and well adorned.ipping was well handled and fair and drinks were not ridiculously priced  We would happily choose HAL again for a future cruise.

Very Spacious and well laid out. Extra touches (pillow spray, welcoming champagne, towel animals, corsage for gala dinner, etc) were a nice touch. Room steward was polite and attentive and knew our name form the first 5 minutes aboard.

Ship tip

If you are going into Victoria, be aware that their is a cost (or 30 minute walk) to get into the city center area.
