We liked: the itinerary - 10 days at sea, embark from Seattle, verandah stateroom, good food, good service, good selection of at-sea activities, excellent cleanliness, good selection of in-room movies, large state room TV, had a bath tub, free room service, excellent performances at the "Lincoln Center Stage" (The very best part of the whole cruise!), free seating option in main dinning room
Didn't like: excursions - extremely over priced & poor selection (only offered excursions from a company owned by HAL), hard mattress, AC directed at head of the bed, very poor main stage performances, outrageous price to get online, HAL charges for up-grades ("Buy Ups"), very high required daily gratuity fee, no booking incentives like offered with other cruise lines, poor shops on board with overly high prices
Would cruise with HAL only if we can get an extremely good price. Otherwise, there are other cruise lines that are a far better value for the price (see above).
Very nice (see above)
We did a Hop On/Hop Off bought from on shore. Much less expensive although it was only a fair value. Otherwise, we only did walk about shopping.
Very over priced so we didn't buy any more excursions from HAL. It was a just OK trip. Otherwise, we just shopped at the large mall. It was not an interesting enough port to stay the extra day that was on the itinerary.View All 26 Island Tour Reviews
We made our own way to a very nice beach and spent the whole day there.
A friend of a friend gave us a tour of the area. This is not a very exciting port.
