Great ports but HAL's food and service not so much

I'd have given this cruise an overall raging of 5 were it not for HAL cheating out on food, service and entertainment.

Food was almost always JUST warm. No flavour and boring, I brought my own garlic powder is that's an indication. Wine staff are ill equipped to offer any advice and are mostly bored with the job. We usually like to attend the Sip and Savour but after one, we stayed away because the so called sommelier had no real interest. She just went through the motions.

I had to send back the escargot because they were actually over cooked.

Cabin None

Clean and tidy. Could use bigger bathrooms.
