We have sailed HAL a half dozen times and always enjoyed the cabins, the food and the ship layouts. But, we have often lamented the poor entertainment and lack of activities on board. This trip was much better in the entertainment department! The Eurodam has a new blues band on board, part of the BB King Blues Club franchise- They played three nights in the Queen's Lounge and one night on the main stage. The lounge was packed each time they played-- the mood was very club like and the music was very good. The Eurodam has also just introduced a "Dancing with the Stars" guest contest. On sea days, two contest session were held each day. At each session, a dance routine was taught and guests were selected to compete on the main stage on Friday night. Each finalist was paired with one of the professional dancers on board and attended a rehearsal. The main stage contest was well attended and the audience really got into it. Overall, the food was very good-- continuing the quality improvements we have observed on our last two cruises with HAL. The only exception is the lobster served on formal night-- it was, as usual, over cooked and over salted. Tamerind food was outstanding-- and the service was also very good. Cabin steward was unobtrusive, but not as on top of things as previous stewards have been- Made me wonder if the number of cabins per steward team had been increased.

Cabin review: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Port and Shore Excursions

Port
Expect to be routinely lied to by "taxi" drivers who will cram as many bodies as possible into a van before taking you to your destination. We were wedged in 4 adults to a bench seat designed for two. Driver claimed to be heading to only our port, when in actuality he stopped at the other port first--in bumper to bumper port traffic- easily adding 20 minutes to the trip. We took the ferry to St. John and then a taxi to trunk bay. Beautiful beach.
