We just booked a family cruise on the Maasdam for July 2012 (Montreal to Boston). It will be a first time on HAL for all of us in our party. We've cruised Carnival, Princess (our favorite thus far) and NCL to a variety of locations (Caribbean, Med, Alaska, Tahiti). What are the best things about HAL and what makes them different than the others? Our group will range from 65 to 5. Any info is appreciated!
