Doing it again

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We very much enjoyed this cruise. The ports of call were fantastic. The days at sea were pleasurable because of the wonderful traveling companions.

Food, as usual, was great. The HAL staff are so friendly and accommodating.

If anyone had less than a great time, that is their problem. There are always people complaining for 42 days. It's the nature of the beast. If you study the quarters on-line, there should be no surprises. Complaints were because people were unaware of what they booked.

Shows on board have slipped. However the entertainment brought on board were very good. We particularly enjoyed the Piano Bar with Paul McD. Only disappointment was that the evening Trivia was changed from 6:00 to 7:00.

We are doing this cruise again in 2014 because we couldn't see everything there was and want to see more of certain ports. Less

Nice cabin. Just as it appeared on the virtual tour. No surprises. Enjoyed the sitting area. Sufficient drawer space even for 42 days. We didn't use 4 of the drawers.
