Carnival Holiday is the oldest and smallest ship in its fleet but it did not seem like it. ALL of the staff were great. There were lots of activities offered. The food was the BEST!!!! Would cruise with Carnival again especially on the Holiday.

Pros: The price.

Cons: There was not enough time in ports.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
The food was GREAT!!!! Way more than anyone could eat. Loved the options; Buffet breakfast, buffet lunch, buffet dinners, or the nice dinners, pizza buffet, ice cream machine, fruit bar, and they offered continential breakfast.
Cabin / Stateroom
The room was WAY bigger than I was expecting. Plenty of closet and drawer space.
Service and Staff
The staff were great. Dinner waiters were the best ever and stateroom staff kept the room very neat and clean.
Cozumel, Mexico
The snorkeling was fun. The ship didn't get to port. It took a long time to get from the ship to the port (due to port constuction at this time). There was not enough time in port.
Calica, Mexico
Chichen Itza is something awesome to see. It did take a very long time from port to the site. Would be better if the ship could port closer to more activities.
