Review summary

We thouroughly enjoyed our cruise. I would respectfully submit to HAL that they allow smoking on the rear verandahs for those of us that smoke. This way the smoke will not offend those who do not smoke. We are very concientious smokers, and do everything to keep from disturbing those who do not.

Very easy. Virtually no lines and took very little time to check in.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Food was very good in the Lido Market. If I had any complaint it would be to expand the hours.

Pool Bar

5 out of 5

As we are smokers and being the ONLY place on the ship we were allowed to smoke, we spent a lot of time here. Alexander (waiter) was as good as it gets. He called us by name from the start, and even though we changed drinks often, he still remembered our choices. We also made good friends there in the Sea View bar.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) Did not visit port

Due to high seas the Captain opted not to allow us to tender..and I agree with his decision

I have Mobile Passport, and when we disembarked I was told that they did not have the "reader" for Mobile Passport. I do not know if it was broken or simply did not have one. We did process through Immigration easily though, so no harm done.
