In our opinion HAL is great for families and here are the reasons why. First of all the cabins are bigger and the bathrooms in all of the outside cabins have a bathtub...thats unusual and essential for small kids. Second..the kids program is great.....not as many kids and they get much more attention than on the bigger ships....its not a huge day care to get rid of the kids for the day...parents are encouraged and invited to get involved...we did and its great. There is also in cabin babysitting that is provided by the Fillopino staff..(ladies only) at a very resonable rate. Since the ships are smaller its just much easier to get around...the promanade deck is great for taking the kids for a stroll all around the ship before completely wears them out and they sleep really well. HAL might not have all the bells and whistles of the great big ship...but is alot less stressful....And usually alot less expensive.
