  1. I also loved the service in the buffet on HAL. Having someone come by with coffee is a plus. I'm 66 and very short & found the seating on hal to be quite comfortable. Some of the seating on the Dawn, my latest NCL cruise, was downright unwieldy. We kept trying to catch the person changing the floor mats on the elevator. The piano bar & B.B. Kings were busy late evenings, but rarely felt crowded.
  2. We sail mainly NCL, but are highly impressed with the HAL cruises we experienced. The entertainment is a highlight for us, with Lincoln Center Stage and the BIllboard piano bar as well as the main stage entertainment. Despite what I imagined. The BB King Blues club was hopping in the evening and we enjoyed the Americas test kitchen during the day. The computer classes were very well done. The ships are lovely, with beautiful wood and artwork all over the ship. It was entertaining to find pieces in every nook & cranny. The observation lounge and the shore excursion staff were f
  3. There you go, we had a horrible meal at Le Bistro last week & a great one at Cagneys. The scallops were very overdone & my French Press coffee, which was NOT pressed at the table was weak & tepid.This was on the Dawn.
  4. On last week. Patty & Jose were in the atrium most nights, Andrew & Zoe at the piano in the atrium & gatsby's Julie Barr comedian, Sonata musical group with great voices, jazz trio, acrobats.
  5. If you turn off the WIFI connection, the book will be there until you turn it on again. Retired librarian here, and trying to download on a ship wifi is a pain. I'm loading up both of our Kindles for our umcoming cruise right now.
  6. With an 11 year old girl, I'd sure want to do the Ann of Green Gables farm in Charlottetown. In Halifax maybe a city tour & ride on the Duck amphibious vehicle. or the Citidel & Maritime museum. Good luck.
  7. This scenario presents a different problem. The PVSA doesn't permit foreign flag vessels to transport passengers from one U.S. port to another without a stop in a distant foreign port. The cruise line would be fined & would probably pass the fine onto you. I'm glad the OP found a solution that will work.
  8. Thank You Maryann. Someone on another cruise site raved about their taxi driver who took them to the best places, with no additional info. We are already doing the Spirit of the Celtic Fiddle in the afternoon. I play & my hubby makes Celtic harps & he is also a piper. We may head out to the Bell site or another point of interest in the morning. Any suggestions?
  9. Can anyone recommend a taxi driver or private tour that would take us to the Bell historical site?
  10. Can anyone post a current Cagneys Menu, for the Dawn if we can get that specific.
  11. I enjoyed our ocean view. We did Alaska on a lower deck and a whale breeched right outside our window. Being below Taste isn't a problem. Close to the galley can be noisy though. Easy out at ports is a plus and the balconies on the Getaway are too small.
