I need the night life. That was my problem with my Celebrity cruise to Alaska to quiet at night. Maybe we had a bad week, because Celebrity Infinity dining room was some of the worst food I have had on a cruise. Probably HAL isn't the cruise line for me and the hubby. I'm not a relaxer on a cruise I'm more go and do something type. Trivia, line dancing, mid night comedy show we normally go to bed around 2-3AM. I wish Carnival or Royal would do a true Sea of Cortez cruise like what HAL does. So this goes back to Dayvid's original question HAL has the ports I want, but Carnival has the activities and night life I want. So what wins out?
