I just got another "Sail & Save" advertisement from HAL. One line reads, "Our mid-sized ships are purposefully designed to strike a balance: large enough to offer diverse amenities and options, yet small enough to preserve a sophisticated ambiance." I like that.

(Ok, so they may have been promoting similarly for a long time, but I only now noticed it .)

I like it, too, and find it at least reasonably to be accurate.

It is a decent description -- sadly the mid size ships still can't provide the Silk Den and Tamarind Restaurant. So they aren't really offering all the options that the Signature Class ships offer.

Cruising is a wonderful way to enjoy retirement!

It's a trade off but nice to have the choice. The smaller ships for those who prefer and they know they cannot have as many venues if they choose smaller tonnage.

For those who want bigger and more, the Signature and Vista would be a better choice.
