Cruised with HAL before and found them good, same service etc on this cruise.
I didn’t book the drinks package and found it was cheaper to pay as you go especially as the cruise had happy hour a few times each day. (Buy one and get another for 2$)
The entertainment was good from the main dancers and singers but the comedian was awful. The group ‘Five o’clock somewhere’ where good singers but didn’t really like their quirky act.
Great spacious cabin, booked an inside and it had a side window. lots of space in cabin with a great steward
My cabin was below the retreat which seemed to be used by the staff on 2 nights for parties but these didn’t go on too late, but earplugs would be useful
