Thank you all for your thoughts. We didn't want to go back on HAL but after reading many reviews & thoughts I think HAL is going to ne our choice a few reasons.
1. HAL & Princess have beeen doing Alaska long before the others. I am not a PRincess fan, been on 1 one theri ships.
2. HAL has wonderful service
3. Their suites are just right for us plus they give you many extras plus the Neptune lounge
Now their entertainment in my opinion is poor & their activites aren't great, but I am going for ALASKA and we will be busy wiith tours. Now if we were going on a cruise where we would be on the ship 4 days of seeing no ports then I would have to go with another line.
I remember when we were on the Hal our head waiter remembered everyones name after the first night and had our drinks waiting for us when we arrived at our table every night. Little things like this are special. We do not ahve any kids so that isn't a factor. We will also be taking a pre tour package.
