..... =X= and prefer bare ground. HAL has matresses that make you think twice before you get up.HAL has beds where you only need to think once before diving in. Yummy.
Service; The service on ALL cruises I have been on is very good. If you smile, they will smile back. The same applies to the people you will meet in other countries. [/color]
HAL has crews that smile first, last and always. Hospitality seems to come from deep inside and I suspect their crews are chosen for exactly this quality. I'll take a smile any day over fluent English if a choice has to be made.
