Kyros and Sassyredhat comments really sum up the reasons why my husband and I prefer HAL cruise lines.
We've found HAL's...service, food and ships to be top in the Premium cruise category.
We of course didn't appreciate the difference until after we cruised other cruise lines. They weren't bad, but they didn't really suit our personalities and vacation needs. Then we tried HAL...world of difference!
But in the end...it's really is a matter of personal taste and what YOU want from your cruise vacation. HAL met and exceeded our expectations.
It's all good...Happy cruising...
