This was our second cruise and found it to be excellent. The balcony stateroom was large and very clean. The excursions were well organized. We enjoy snorkeling and we did so at Grand Caymen, Belize, and Roatan. All three locations were fun, but Roatan was outstanding. The ship is well maintained and the food was very good. The loading and disembarking procedures went without a hitch; very smooth operation.
The ship was older and small with few activities for teens. Having said that my wife and I had a good time on the Holiday. It's smaller sizes created a more intimate atmosphere. The itinerary was altered prior to our departing Mobile, AL due to a malfuntion with the ship. Instead of visiting Progresso we visted Calica (Playa de Carmen), which, was disappointing, but we did have a good time. If your looking for a casual trip this is a cruise for you. The staff was the "Best". Went above and beyond to please the passangers. The staff was the Holiday's greatest attribute.
