i'm sorry you had a bad experience with HAL.
My experience on Eurodam was nothing like yours. I noticed you made several references to "gelling' which I assume you mean "hand sanitizing". When we sailed Eurodam last year - they were extremely diligent. We were told that Eurodam was only one of two ships sailing out of Port Everglades which had a perfect record health issues.
I think with most lines you will find that the older ships are not as stellar as the new ships.
The memory fades with time (I need to go back and read my last review!). If memory serves, I think my only issue wtih Eurodam was that it was a small ship and I much prefer the larger ships. WIth a year having passed and since sailing Freedom of the Seas and Disney Dream .... I would go back to Eurodam in a heartbeat.
Good luck to you in finding the perfect cruiseline that meets your needs.
