I can't believe there is any truth to this post. Our HAL cruise could not have been more perfect. In fact, one of our friends asked us if there was anything we wish were different or better, or any problems at all, and we honestly could not think of a thing! Last week's cruise on Maasdam (our first cruise) was absolutely glorious, and we are already planning another HAL cruise. If anyone reading Jean's post is having doubts about HAL because of what she said, I urge you to weigh her outlandish post with the many many other posts here from tremendously satisfied travellers.
