Just returned home from same cruise. Seventh cruise but first on HAL. Enjoyed it a lot and agree with initial post on most things.
A few additional comments:
Volume in rock venue much to loud at times. Painfull.
We appreciated the classical music in Lincoln Center Stage.
I get the impression HAL is trying to be a little different from other lines with the musical theme on the ship. Successfully in my opinion.
The Post-Modern Jukebox-show was a disaster. Large part part of the audience walked out during the performance.
We observed one couple in line for the MDR told they could not be seated until the man had changed from shorts.
Lots of interesting art all over the ship. We did our own art tour one day, walking down all three starwells.
In all a very pleasant cruise on a well run and beautiful ship. We would happily consider HAL again.
