Our cabin was very nice & Mus, our cabin steward was probably one of the best we've ever had (33 cruises). The ports were also nice & we had a good time on the "Sunset Cruise" shore excursion in Aruba.
The food was not as good as previous (2) HAL cruises and we heard other people comment on that as well. The Pinnacle restaurant was very good, but we were comped those dinners. We wouldn't pay extra to eat there since we feel we pay enough when paying for a cruise to expect good food in all the regular restaurant's.
The daily newsletter was a little misleading regarding some of the entertainment as well. We showed up 3 times to hear "Yolanda & the HALCATS" at the advertised time (8-12) only to find out that only the band was there at 8 & Yolanda wouldn't be there until 10!!!! The band was good, but we wanted to hear Yolanda!!! Some of the other venues started earlier than advertised, so by the time we arrived, there was not a seat to be found!
The cruise was okay, but not as good as we thought it would be.
