Review summary

we love HAL. have been on 15 + cruises -never a complaint. our only disappointment is rudeness of guests toward staff. that and stupidity of some people. example-- 1 of many--28 day islands and Amazon overheard a lady returning excursion tickets after she went on a tour in Manus to among other stops the "OPEN AIR MARKET" REPEAT "OPEN AIR MARKET" AND COMPLAINED BECAUSE IT WAS NOT "AIR CONDITIONED"-- to be fair men are equally stupid- overheard man on phone telling relatives back home- not to bother going to Amazon because "IT'S BORING"-
