  1. I too echo these same comments about the cabin size, bathroom and main shows. I would say that HAL has changed the entertainment focus to live contemporary music with BB Kings and the RSRR. I have no hesitation about sailing either line but would likely choose HAL if the cost and itinerary were so similar.
  2. looks like she's gonna do a spin here soon and head bow out to sea. i wondered the same thing at first.
  3. seems there's no escort from the USCG or SO with no passengers.
  4. I thought Gus came across as informal, conversational and more genuine than many boilerplate interviews done these days. I like that HAL salvaged art from Rotterdam VI and plans on working into they art of Rotterdam VII.
  5. Agreed. They seem to find a way to make things work in most cases. Do it early and check a time or two later also.
  6. Glad it worked out for you! Calling is always the best thing even though you can get conflicting info from the horse's mouth too. 😁
  7. I see now... I would assume that since the "free" inside comes with none of the perks that it would be from the "Best Price" and not the "View and Verandah" price quote. But you could quickly call HAL and ask to be sure as I'm just guessing.... 🙃 If you do, let us know what they say.
  8. Your dad has to choose the "View and Verandah" price to get the free inside cabin. Still have to pay taxes and port fees and there are no perks for the inside cabin.
  9. Just to add to this excellent explanation, we "gifted" our DD for her BD with an inside and added her bestie and her bestie's 3 year old son to the inside. We did have to pay the freight on the child, which was what we considered minimal. As mentioned, the booking is completely separate and has no added perks, but they can be added. We were asked if we wanted to link our payment method to their booking but we declined for now; this can be added at any time and our bookings are otherwise linked (for meals, etc.) They can book excursions and all services on their own through HAL on their own
  10. We bit and bought a cruise in December 2021 as a BD present for our DD. Just paid the taxes and port charges for the "free" inside cabin.
