The 4th floor was easy to move around the ship. Elevators were never crowded and real close to our cabin. Also close to the Medical Services. Thank goodness we didn't have to use them.
Don't book an outside cabin in the aft section.
On port/tour days its much faster to eat on the Lido deck than wait in dining room for fine dining
The Lido deck was always a great place to eat.
Very quiet cruise and this made it very enjoyable.
Read carefully all the information you get ahead of time and consider following all tips and advice. They are most helpful.
If you want a smaller ship where you can get to know people on your cruise this is a great ship! Talk to people and you will make many new friends! I have been on many cruises and got to know people, but this ship is really one of the easiest to get to know other passengers. You will always find someone you have an affinity for, no matter who you are!
Too small for rough seas, nearly everyone was sick. And missed 1/2 the ports. So there isnt enough to do on a small ship with no ports and sick people.
do not whine- and do not leave good manners ashore.
Soaps are supplied in bathrooms and the public laundry.
Bring lots to do and don't be afraid to speak up, if you like or don't like something. Its the only way changes will be made!
It is an older crowd. Not much to do on sea days. Perfect if you want to rest and relax.
Use the dining room and skip the specialty restaurants.
No real complaints which is really pretty amazing!
Maybe my expectations for HAL were too high going into this trip so I ended up disappointed.
A good, cozy ship, easy to get to know your fellow passengers when there are only about a 1000 on board, easy to navigate and everything is clustered on specific floors. Would seriously consider this ship on a major ocean voyage (it goes across both the Atlantic and the Pacific) with long days at sea. Large, comfortable public areas and very good food.
This is not the luxury cruise line of old. They are just above par from where they once were.
This ship is a bit smaller than some of the newer ships and not quite as up to date on some features. This does not affect enjoyment of the cruise.
This is a small ship. As long as you know that before you go you will be fine. Few extras but that's what we like
Keep your expectations behind and you will have a great time.
