Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food and service in the main dining room was great. The Lido had great breakfasts and the lunch time menu was good too. The Dive Inn had the best burgers and fries that Ai have ever eaten. The Pinnacle on this ship was not up to standards compared to other HAL ships. The service was bad and the food just okay.

Onboard Activities

The one step dance group did a great job as did the magicians and comedians. I still miss the HAL singers and dancers as they were always the highlight of the ships entertainment. Whoever in the corporate office decided to do away with the the singers and dancers should be fired!!! Very bad decision!
