For me HAL underwent a considerable culinair improvement.
Oosterdam Cruise Review to Mexico
Review summaryI enjoyed every minute of this cruise. One little advice:Keep copies of prepaid Gratuities and Transfer Costs to or from the ship to help the guest relations department so that they do not have to communicate with the Main Office in Seattle.
Food and Dining
There was an enormous improvement from the past in the choice of food.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
It was for me one of the better cruises at HAL and did remind me of old times before Carnival took over. I used the possibility of booking a future cruise on board and instead of paying a small amount of 100 dollars I paid 300 dollars down and received therefore 200 dollars of spending o/b money for my future cruise. My advice: You have to pay the final cruise price ultimately anyhow why not pay a larger amount down and get more spending on board money.
