We love the blue hulled livery of HAL ships that look like ships. The elegant dining rooms, beautiful flowers, fabulous art, decorum aboard, atmosphere of quiet elegance, well designed and comfortable cabins and suites, verandas, AFT pools, HAL's excellent Lido, Neptune Lounge, (most) Ocean Bars, comfy beds, robes in all cabins, flat screen tv's in cabins, among the best itineraries (IMO) etc etc etc

But most of all, we love HAL's crews, staff and Officers best of all.
