Sail Date: Dec 2010
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Traveled with children

Mostly we have been P & O/Princess passengers but decided to give HAL a go after good reports from a mte. It was a good move.

Its very quickly obvious that HAl has a somewhat older demographic. After enduring numerous noisy sailaways where getting a drink is near impossible, I loved the fact that I could just walk up to a bar and immediately get served, and this occured right through the cruise. There were always people around but we never felt crowded.

Our cabin was spacious and had tons of wardrobe/drawer space plus a well laid out bathroom. Normally our 13yo son gets a dropdown pullman berth but here he got a sofabed which was far better. Everything was kept clean and enjoyed the nightly towel animals.
