It was a great overall experience. The itinerary is what attracted us to this cruise as we had done China, Korea, Japan and a Transpacific to Vancouver in 2015 and this cruise offered new Asian ports - just the 16 day itinerary. The service as is always the case with HAL was above average. Quality of food was very good, loved the food the artwork and gorgeous flower arrangements. Entertainment was the weakest point on this trip but Planet Earth really stood out and the BB King show was lively and very enjoyable made up for the Theatre offering. Just took one tour with HAL, Koh Samui, the day we got soaked. HAL tours are good but too expensive. I am a regular cruiser with HAL love the cruise line but the cost of the tours is never addressed. Shame. The cabin was as expected, always clean - excellent service.
We are Looking forward to our next cruise with HAL.
