Sail date: December 28, 2019

Review summary

We enjoyed the Panama Canal very much and the happy hours at the Crow's nest. Were not able to dock at Costa Rica which was a disappointment but we understood the water was too rough. Staff is wonderful, food delicious and plentiful. Worst part was the live entertainment. I guess HA staff believe that just because we are seniors they don't have to strive for excellence in that department. There was no Food Kitchen entertainment and I'm not sure why. Overall, t was a great restful vacation which we enjoyed because we most enjoy ship time over ports, shopping, sightseeing. I've been on Eurodam twice so knew what to expect. It's an underwhelming ship in good condition. I love HA service, cleanliness and food so I'll be back on HA, just not on this ship.

The pianos and symphony music were terrific. Good movie selection and the BBC videos were also great. Live stage shows were terrible.

Ship tip

Definitely an older crowd and live stage entertainment was awful. Just right size of ship...not to small or large. Cabana area was great but a little worn.
