Room Type: Suite

The ship was beautiful. Everything new and gleaming. This was about my 6th or seventh cruise with HAL and it gets better and better all the time

Pros: Everything

Cons: That it ended

Ship Quality
The size was just right, not overpopulated, although it was sold out.Everwhere were people cleaning and polishing
Food and Dining
The food was A1 and the service was excellent. After the first day the waiter knew that I like cappuchino after dinner and I never had to order it. He brought it himself.
Cabin / Stateroom
My suite was perfect. Clean and roomy and all the amenities I would want.
Service and Staff
The staff really went above and beyond. When you stood still for a moment someone came and asked if you needed help. Everyone was smiling and willing to help you in any way.The room steward was excellent
There was always plenty to do. The lectures were very informative.the art auction was very interesting and instructive. You couldnt ask for anything more.The movies were good and the casino was top-notch
Bridgetown, Barbados
Bridgetown is beautiful but the highlight was the beach where we spent about 1 hour.The water is warm and great to swim in.
Don't Miss: The beach
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We did not have much time for sightseeing, as we bought lots of jewelry, which I alway buy there. The prices are unbelievable.
Road Town, Tortola, B.V.I.
This was the second time I was there. The first time I swam with the dolphins, which was a once in a lifetime experience and this time I took a tour up to the mountains which is also not to be missed
Don't Miss: The dolphins
Roseau, Dominica
I also took the tour there. Roseau id beautiful but there is too much poverty
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
I had been in St Maarten several times. There is a restaurant nearoI forgot the name.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
There was not much time in PR but long enough to stroll through the old town which is beautifully revitalized.
Don't Miss: The old town
