My thinking is HAL is NOT the ship that will please all ages.
The RCI Freedom would be my choice as well. I sailed her last year. The kids pool is awesome, for the wee ones. The flow rider for the teens will enthrall them. The parade they have, will enchant everyone..This ship offers so many choices, plus a good childrens program. Thta's my 2 cents worth. Whatever you decide, have a ball!
Trip, with her book & tea!
