"A Good Time was had by All"

Sail Date: March 06, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I thought the ship was great. Our room was very comfortable and plenty big enough for the 2 of us. Our room stewards were wonderful... we'd leave and come back and our room was clean & usually had a cute little towel animal on the bed. Our waiters in the Four Winds dining room were great too!!! Ajimi, Donald & Alejandro... we'll never forget them... they treated us like kings and queens and they put on a little show each night during dinner which was great! We also met new friends that we ate with each night and it was nice!

Pros: Activities, Meeting new friends

Cons: Weather, Motion sickness... 17 foot waves rocking the boat

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was very clean, everything was accessable. The only thing that they could improve upon would be the "decor".. meaning the pictures in the hallways and rooms are a little outdated... but really, who cares?
Cabin / Stateroom
Wonderful, very clean and comfy!
Service and Staff
Everyone we came in contact with was wonderful.... our waiters, room stewards etc... everyone was helpful!
Food and Dining
If you don't get enough to eat OR if you don't get what you want to eat, it's your fault. They have buffets for all 3 meals plus pizza 24 hrs a day and they have 4 course meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well. Not to mention the midnight buffets atleast 2 nights on the 4 night cruise!! Don't forget to try the "chocolate warming cake"... oh my goodness!!! It's the best:)
Cozumel, Mexico
All of the "water related" excursions were cancelled due to strong currents... so, that was a disappointment. We were somewhat disappointed in mexico because they try to sell you "everything" and you can't just enjoy walking down the street and shopping.... they're constantly trying to pull you in to this store and that store and sell you something.
Don't Miss: Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville was nice.... beautiful scenery!
