Kiddie Carnival

Sail Date: July 12, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Not what we expected, based on what friends had told us about cruises in general. Crowds everywhere; food, pools,activities. The crew handled most everything but it wasn't what we really expected. It could be the timing, July and family vacations. Food was adequate but not outstanding.

Pros: Cozumel

Cons: Crowds everywhere

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED)? Yes!

Variety of activities but some were not well organized.
Ship Quality
Hairs(not ours) on everything. Pools got dirty very quickly. Overall ship cleanliness was not bad.
Children's Programs
For all the reviews that we read about people saying they barely noticed hundreds of children on the ship, that was not our experience. Kids running wild all over the ship at all hours.
Food and Dining
Our waiters were outstanding, taking time to meet our needs and keep bottles of wine for the next meal. Variety and portions were average.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service was spotty and cleanliness left something to be desired.
Service and Staff
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cozumel, Mexico
Numerous activities available and everyone we spoke with had positive things to say.
