We chose this cruise because we wanted to have Christmas and New Year on a cruise and the HAL had been recommended by some American friends.
We had a wonderful surprise when we were upgraded from a SS midship to a Neptune suite at the back of the ship.A really big cabin with an L shaped veranda at the back.
Having access to the Neptune lounge was a plus, the 2 concierges could not have been more friendly and helpful and the free capuchino was another plus!
A beautiful cabin, large, well designed and full of light. A big bathroom and the veranda is perfect, the L shape meant that we could find sun or shade whenever we wanted.
The cabin stewards were excellent, always willing and kept the cabin spotless.
It IS a long walk to anywhere else on the ship but for anyone ablebodied that should not be a problem.
