I HEART HAL RYNDAM

written by david157 posted on 06/07/10

This was our first cruise a 3 day trip to nowwhere. Ryndam was just in drydock getting a make over. It was all new! We booked HH Class, and was upgraded to ovenview DD class. The bathroom was all new, the bed and all items in the room were new or very very clean. The ship is an older ship but so well kept!

Since it was a trip to nowwhere there were no shor excursions. We do not have kids and avoid them as much as possible so I can not say anything about the kid facilities.

I never had such great service, it was 10 star! Dining was great! I love the lido!

GREAT Cruise, Great Cruise line, and Great Ship. We booked the same ship for a 7 day in November!
