A little dissappointed

Sail Date: June 12, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was unimpressive. It was out-dated and way to small. There wasn't much to do on the ship at all. It's really sad when you pay as much as we did to basically hide in our cabin. There was never anything to watch on the TV. The show on the cruise were boring, and there wasn't much information about what was going on. Getting off/on the cruise was a nightmare! There has to be a better way of disembarking! The cruise was entirely to hot and humid. There were to many people on the small ship so it felt like we were moving cattle at all times! My biggest complaint was how hot it was in our rooms as well as the entire ship!
On the other hand the room service, dinning service, and stewards were excellant.
Enjoyed dinner.

Pros: The Service-the dinning and cleaning service

Cons: Wasn't much to do, and was way to expensive for what we got, the ship was unimpressive and grimy.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.

Food and Dining
It was good. I had a good time at dinner. Lunch and breakfast was all right, could've had more choices. Room service selections was very limited!!! I felt dehydrated and had an upset stomach most of the cruise after we ate though. Small portions as well.
Ship Quality
Too smal, Too hot, and Nothing going on. It was outdated and needed maintenance!
Cabin / Stateroom
Beds were uncomfortable, nothing on the TV, and the bathroom was unfitting and too dark!
Not much to offer for my age group. Wasn't available information on activities. Info desk was useless, and shows were dull.
Service and Staff
Cozumel, Mexico
Senor Frogs was excellent. Wished we had more time in Mexico. Needed more info on Mexico though. We were uniformed about what to do, especially about money.
Don't Miss: Senor Frogs
