Overall Member Rating
Excellent cruise experience, highly recommend ship
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The ship is very well run. Everything was smooth and staff was lovely. We did not feel like we were being pushed to buy extras constantly.
The crowd is older. That made it a little slow for the teenagers (who as a result hung with us!) There were probably as many walkers slowing down traffic on this More cruise as strollers on other lines. However, the seniors weren't throwing tantrums and went to bed early so there were plenty of seats at the late shows. No lines on workout equipment. Overall it was a good trade. The shows did seem more targeted for a Lawrence Welk set.
We had a suite beside the penthouse. No noise or smoke complaints. The Neptune lounge was a very nice upgrade. Compared to regular suite on Celebrity and Owner's suite on Norwegian this was a great experience and we are thinking about going back on HAL in November. Less
