Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Spa Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Chose this cruise because we wanted to go to Iceland. The itinerary was not disappointing and our veranda cabin was excellent, with more than adequate storage. The ship is new, beautiful, and well laid out (except for the Casino’s proximity to other public venues).

My wife fell in Amsterdam (before the cruise) and broke her arm. The HAL crew were extremely accommodating, from embarkation through disembarkation.

The entertainment was a mixed bag. The musical venues were outstanding, especially the Lincoln Center and the Rock ‘N Roll. The main stage entertainment was spotty and evidenced what can only be described as budgetary cuts.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Spa Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Cabin VQ

Cabin was spacious (for a cruise ship) and well laid out, with more than adequate storage.

We especially enjoyed the “walk-in” shower, as opposed to the combined shower-tub.
