Easiest embarking ever. We were on board by 11:30 am sitting at the Lido having lunch. Disembark was super quick and easy thanks to the face scanning technology at the Ft Lauderdale cruise port.

This was our 7th cruise on an HAL ship, out of 57 total cruises ( other lines mostly Celebrity, RCL, Oceania).

Food varied from being poor to fair in the Lido, Deck 9, to very good in the Main Dining Room. Generally, we found the food very salty, over spiced, and favoring "Caribbean dishes too much". Salads, pastries are strong suits as is the pizza at NY Deli and Pizza and the burgers/coated fries at the Dive-in.
