Quick Getaway

Sail Date: December 13, 2007

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

While the ship is older, it appeared to be meticulously maintained. We received housekeeping services in our cabin at least twice daily and the public areas were kept clean throughout the duration of the cruise. Basically, everything was clean and well maintained.

Pros: Food and Dining service were incredible

Cons: Older ship that is beginning to show its age

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED)? Yes!

Children's Programs
The kids (ages 2 & 4) were anxious to "go to school" each morning.
Ship Quality
Facilities were a bit outdated (e.g. the exercise room was full everytime I visited, but again, high marks for cleanliness
Cabin / Stateroom
Food and Dining
Service, selection and quality were excellent
Service and Staff
Caernival puts great emphasis on the guest experience
Cozumel, Mexico
This would probably be excellent if we were able to get outside the port area. Our young children prevented us from participating in any of the optional excursions
