Cabin was fine— just too dang cold. I had to wrap up in a blanket when I was in there. We notified the staff our first day and every day after, but even though they were quick to respond, it wasn’t fixed until our last day. HAL gave us a $200 credit for the inconvenience.

Ship tip

Don’t stress about the formal nights. Wear something you’d wear to church, you’ll fit right in.
