Review summary

We were in an SC class suite and was very disappointed in the condition of the room and its facilities.  The bathroom floor tiles were missing a large amount of grout.  Some entire sides were empty.  The outer door lock on our veranda door was nearly corroded away from sea air and salt water.  The deck was very rusty.  

The Main Dining Room food was good, as was the service,  and entertainment was surprisingly good.   A lot of the crew looked tired, not as outgoing as other HAL crews.  Will probably take a break from HAL cruising for awhile.

Not enough activities on sea days that didn't have a cost associated with them.
