disaster cruise

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Australia & New Zealand
Embarkation: Seattle
this cruise was nothing like we booked 12 months ago.Embarkation in Seattle was fine nice and smooth and first impressions of the ship were fine the cabin was good .

how wrong can first impressions be. it was down hill from there on.

the ship left Seattle one day late due to bad weather which we can fully understand as safety comes always first.

but then it started they changed the port of Hilo for laihaini cut of a day in Honolulu changed the dates on Dravuni island and Suva in Fiji cutting of the evening visit in Suva.

we have never been on a ship with so many changes happening to the itenerary as on this one never mind if you had private tours booked you lost your money.We have never seen so many unhappy people as on this ship.

the food standard was very dissapointing in the main restaurant the food was bland a cold we send it back on a few occations and walked out.

the dining room waiters were great they tried their upmost. More

food in the Lido was average apart from the Oriental and italian sections they were great.

we feel the standards have dropped on this vessel from a 5 to a 3 we do hope that it was just this vessel as we have sailed before with HAL and were very happy. Less
