Review summary

All in all a nice trip to see the smaller towns of Ireland and who on earth doesnt love Bruges!!! HAL does a nice job making you feel save and taken care of. I wish they catered more to the single people who love to travel alone.

Staff and crew are fabulous and the ship is small enough that they can cater to you easily.

Ship Quality

Refurbish should be coming up soon on this ship. It is beautiful though. Could use another set of elevators.

Ship tip

If you enjoy a smaller ship then this is the one for you. I prefer the size of the Niew Amsterdam - but its all a matter of taste. It does make it easier to get on and off the ship though for those excursions.
