Fabulous Ship and Cruise
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
All ports: Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, and Half Moon Cay were beautiful. The white sandy beaches and beautiful crystal clear water were amazing. Our favorite island was Half Moon Cay--the finest white powder sand we've ever seen. We wish we could have stayed there forever, but sailing on a HAL ship is the only way one can get there since it's More their private island. We would highly recommend this ship and this cruise to those who just want to sit back and totally relax in a warm climate. A word of caution: HAL attracts mostly senior citizens, so if you are of the younger generation or have children, you might not be happy on this cruise. I saw only a handful of chldren the entire week. Less
Cabin review: 4006 F
We were on deck 4. We loved our nice sized verandah; it was so relaxing to sit outside and enjoy the beauitful view. Next time we will upgrade to get a verandah that has clear panels and the metal that we couldn't see through. We had to look out over the top of the railing to see anything. Our mistake trying to save a few bucks.
