Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Traveled with children

We are a family of multi-star Mariners, and for some in our group, this was our third time on this ship. For our children, it was their second time on this ship, with our previous sailing in 2018.

Our children always look forward to their adventures with Club HAL, the Holland program for children and tweens but when we boarded the ship, it was abundantly clear that their beloved Club Hal was replaced by a dirty and dark room on the third deck with children playing on the floor open from 9-12 and then 6/7-10 every day for those 3-6. SEE PHOTOS.

In lieu of their beloved Club Hal, there was "High Score," a new gaming area only open to 7-17 year olds during the day, and then, after 6pm, younger or older guests could enter.
