HAL Informative - No Problems With HAL -- Yet!

Review by Neptunis Rex on 2008-08-13
Just found this site and I have to say I am a bit dismayed with the level and types of complaints with HAL.

My wife and I are planning for the 14-day W/E Carib cruise over Christmas and New Year's. We have sailed with HAL three times: AK (Westerdaam), 16-day Panama Canal (Rotterdaam and Carib (Zuiderdaam. All cruises were enjoyable and flawless. We enjoyed our veranda suites and everything else aboard ship.

The tours were over-valued (especially salmon fishing in AK and deep-sea fishing in Key West.) You will have a better time by staying aboard with cocktails.
That being said I am now a little apprehensive to book our holiday cruise. Will have to give it some serious thought.

Our best cruise ever was aboard the SS Norway when they featured their Jazz Cruise. That was a week we will never forget.

In closing, I hope that everyone enjoys their future sailings.

HAL has it's ups and downs just like all the other lines (I'm a RCI, girl, myself ^_~)

Have you tried www.cruisecritics.com yet? It's a great place for information on the different lines, ports of call, and excursions ^_^

Happy sailings!
