Lots of Fun

Sail Date: February 08, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was old and unattractive.

Pros: We went on the "Sail, Snorkel, and Party" shore excursion aboard The Fury, and it was a lot of fun!!

Cons: The pools were almost never open.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.

The options for entertainment were limited, but it was nice because everyone on the ship was doing the same thing at the same time. The social activities, such as dance instruction on the deck, was a lot of fun!
Food and Dining
The food in the dining room was really good, and the waiters were polite and entertaining. The pizza parlor and room service options were available at all times, which was very convenient. Lunch time meals were a bit lacking. I expected more fresh fruits and vegetables, and the choices were altogether limited at lunch.
Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom was in excellent condition. It was a nice size for a ship, and all 3 of us were comfortable.
Service and Staff
Staff was extremely polite and very helpful!
Ship Quality
The entrance onto the ship was unimpressive, and the entire ship smelled badly. The deck where poolside parties were held was very small and crowded. However, the night clubs were in excellent condition, the hot tubs were great, and the mini golf course was the best one I have ever seen on a ship.
Cozumel, Mexico
We enjoyed the shopping at Cozumel.
Don't Miss: We went on the "Sail, Snorkel, and Beach" shore excursion where we rode The Fury. There were free margaritas, and dance music on the boat, which was a lot of fun. The crew was great!
