Did not like MSC at all and feel Royal Caribbean “nickels and dimes “ you to death. We like peace and quiet, but some fun things. Prefer casual to dress up. We are considering a HAL cruise to the Caribbean and wonder if this line might work for us. Any thoughts or considerations about this? I realise its been quite a few weeks since you asked your question but I did not see a response ..... HAL would be a great fit based on your stated preferences. There is some nickel and diming but it is pretty limited (extra charges in specialty steak restaurant, pinnacle grill, for some items and any extra entrees attract a $15 fee, both occupants in a cabin must purchase drinks package even if just one wants it, current practise is to charge full drink price if an ordered drink exceeds the limit on max drink price). HAL attracts an elderly demographic - no rock climbing, dodgem cars or waterslides. Avoid spring break, school holidays and very short itineraries in the Caribbean and there will be few children or over the top party types. HAL is not known for its stage shows but it has great music options (classical, blues and 1960's+ rock). Princess and HAL are often rated on these boards as being very similar. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
