Ship is beautiful and room lovely. BUT WE WILL NO LONGER SAIL ON HAL. As 4 star mariner we always chose to sail Holland because of ports, dancing in Ocean bar and Crows nest during happy hour and before and after the show Loved the wonderful shows and lots activities. There were dance lessons, keroke, games, lectures and more. BuT IT NOT NOW. Just finished an 18 day cruise. Lectures still great. Shows barely average and only 2 nights with the singers and dancers. We had 4 nights of old movies (on sea days). We can watch movies in our room or at home. No real activities except trivia. or you could learn to make a grilled cheese sandwich, or in digital learn to make a cup for fee. No live music on lidocaine or aft on sail away. Beautiful music in Lincoln center, but during dinner or late. Two night clubs with music for younger people (remember HAL dialers are generally 70 years and up . And music in clubs started at 8: 30. And it was Loud. Couldn't get mini bar filled even after calling several times a day. If you like jumbo prawns in main dining room, sorry not there. So the tips were up to $15 per person We will be looking for another cruise line. P.S. sent note toTAL and no response

As 4 star mariner sad to say no longer sail on HAL
