  1. We had our first HAL cruise when hub and I were 40/42, and had 10/12 yo sons with us in the Mediterranean in 2008. Amazing. We have since cruised HAL another 4 times, once with kids over Christmas in the Caribbean, 2 with another good friend couple, and 2 with just us. Now in early/mid 50s, we love the HAL amenities and atmosphere. Chose to cancel the original booked 25 day around Hawaii and Mexican Rivera for Nov 2020 due to Covid. Truly hope to be able to come back, but truly, don’t expect to until perhaps 2022 to be safe. Have done Ocean view/veranda/ suite , wouldn’t rule out inside
  2. Completely agree. Although business and the bottom line is what no doubt corporate HAL (and other cruise lines) are thinking, they would be extremely foolish to resume actual departures for quite some time.
  3. Of coursed they could. They are very different. The sick bay is staffed with ICU/ER level qualified physicians and registered nurses. <source...am a nurse, chatted with an RN on a previous HAL cruise when young son needed some minor attention, and have looked at their job website for healthcare professionals>
  4. As an until recently clinical health care practitioner, I was optimistic 2 weeks ago about our Nov around Hawaii cruise...now I doubt it will be a go, or will require serious reconsideration. Final payment isn’t until summer, so time to wait it out and see what happens. My personal opinion is maybe 2021... wish it were not so, but I don’t think that’s unrealistic.
