with 400 plus passengers being on tha Rotterdam for the whole 90 day cruise I made a lot of great friends.
the food was good but got boring since dishes where repeated a lot.
boarding and DE boarding in Rotterdam was the worst I ever experienced. Hal must look at a new contract for this port since it is a home port.
the elevators on the ship where never all working. several times all 4 elevators in the aft of the ship did not work.
the excursion prices were criminal high. should be reported to a competition board. only did one cruise with hall and 24 tours privately arranged through cruise critic.
glen the cruise director was outstanding. many excellent events also arranged for solo and single travelers.
the ship had two excellent receptions foe all cruise critic members.
the cruise did not offer any Hal shuttles in any ports. Even paid ones, thus locals transportation demanded premium prices.
Indian customs where extremely frustrating in most every port.
over all extremely enjoyed the cruise except for the elevator and excursion prices.
shame on you Hal for the criminal excursion prices.
