I have never heard of HAL having a disabled UNfriendly reputation.They allowed people on board who were oxygen dependent and their medical staff were known to be very responsive and caring.
As a disabled person, sailing with HAL for the past 10 years my experience with them has always been very positive. Whenever I have booked, I have received a form from ship's services requesting details of my special needs. This form is then given to personnel on board who will need to see that my needs are seen to. These people include the medical staff, cabin steward, dining room staff and anyone else necessary. If anything, I would say that in the past 10 years their attention to detail and service in general to the needs of the disabled has improved.
If you check out the disabled message board people seem to agree that HAL does the best job in the industry in providing service to the disabled. I have only sailed on HAL and RCI so I can only address those two lines. HAL definitly does a better job.
I hope this helps. I know you will enjoy your cruise with HAL and they will serve you well.
