Sail Date: Nov 2017
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

We have cruised HAL before. previously Trans Atlantic and Med with Noordam and Baltics , Scandnavia on Konningsdam, WE loved all before and were prepared to travel long distance from Oz but now figured a cruise close to home would ease the travel strain. We took the cruise for the ship/cruise not the destination.

Another reason for the cruise was to compare HAL and Princess who we sailed the new Majestic in June.

Maybe this review may seem like a comparison of the two....if you want a comparison read on.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VC

great cabin as you expect. plenty of room provided you put things away. the cabin is not (and none on any ship we have sailed --30 odd) designed for clutter, you need to be a tidy person otherwise you will be tripping over all your belongings. that said there were heaps of storage space ...we took too much luggage with 50 kilo total between the 2 of us and everything was hung up...we did get more hangers.

Cabin is per photo and generally the same as other balcony staterooms...this is called a veranda stateroom...same thing. . bedding was super good with plenty of pillows and top sheet so we could kick off the Duna. Air con was first class and consistent temp. sometimes I think ships are hotter at night and cool in the day.
