Thank you for your review. I agree that HAL is not on par with Princess or Carnival where the food is concerned. I had excellent service on HAL, however, where the cabin steward was concerned. Princess is our favorite line, so far, but we enjoyed Carnival, Royal, Costa, and NCL as well. HAL the ship was immaculate and the crew was great, but the food was not that good. I can't say that another ship would be better on HAL, but some friends of mine recently did the Panama Canal Cruise on HAL and loved it. If you cruise Princess again, try the Sea, Caribbean or Grand. We're scheduled for the Emerald in November, Lord willing and will post a review on her. I'm really excited, she's a sister to the Crown. Best wishes!
