Yes, everything Rita said is why we prefer HAL. We are 60 and 58 yrs. old, but by no means are we "old folks".
We like HAL's elegance and the impeccable service, gourmet food, smaller number of passengers, and fewer number of kids.
We don't drink, like the casinos and spas, and like the entertainment. For medical reasons, I don't sit out in the sun or use the pools.
We really AREN'T boring
We get alot for our money with HAL, even though some cruises can be pricey. We have never been dissatisfied with ANYTHING on any of our HAL cruises, although some other lines occasionally offer a better selection of tours.
We are booked for HAL's Hawaii cruise (again) in 2008, but are planning to try Dawn Princess because they offer a golf package to the Mexican Riviera from San Diego. We did a golf cruise in 2006 on Carnival Spirit, but that really wasn't what we are looking for.
Hope this gives you the info you are looking for.
