Ship tip

Love the new ship, we all had lots of fun! The breakfast begal at ny deli is a fast option with no line up in morning. We all enjoyed the fresh gelato! Like the newer design and brightness of everything (more updated but still elegant old feel of HAL, fresh feel and loved the new dining options except the culinary arts center night (yuck to the drinks, too too long, uncomfortable chairs, some food was meh, just dont go.) Sel de mer was great! Need internet wifi free on these newer ships or have texting app available for groups to meet up and find each other. Cabanas awesome as always but guys were too busy way to long a wait for things, need more people up there.
