Like to share a recent experience on HAL Koningsdam. For balance we are in our early sixties, well travelled and cruised ( 30 plus sailings) but first time on HAL.

We wanted to visit South Pacific and unlike most transpacific options this sailing was itinerary rich and during winter months (17 Feb to 23 Mar 24) as we also like to escape British winters.

Port Reviews


Loved Moorea, the local tours of inner island bookable via viator were excellent quality and value compared to HAL.

The snorkelling tours were excellent


Fantastic day in Maui, great whale watching tour with so many visible.


Really enjoyed our overnight in Honolulu, gave us opportunity to see and do a lot more than a day stay.


Not a great port of call, seemed a filler as offered very little to see and do.
