HAL ms Oosterdam
Western Caribbean: 12/29/2018-1/5/2019
TL;DR: Enjoyed the cruise, would happily sail HAL again. Programming and “tempo” skews noticeably older and slower on HAL vs. PCL, and if you want a younger feel I’d suggest X over P or H.
We flew in the evening of the Dec. 28th and stayed at Hampton Inn Ft. Lauderdale/Plantation, 29th-Port Everglades ; 30th-Half Moon Cay; 31st-Sea; Jan 1st-Falmouth, Jamaica; 2nd-George Town, Cayman Islands; 3rd- Cozumel, Mexi
