Carnival Cruise - Holiday ship

Sail Date: June 01, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

the cleanliness was not up to par from other ships I have been on for a cruise. The morale of some of the ship's personnel seemed lacking and we were not always welcomed by some personnel as could have been. There seemed a lack of planning in some of the entertainment. In that it was thrown together and one leaders made a comment that he could throw a man who was drunk off of the ship.

Pros: food, time with loved ones and friends, some of the entertainment was great,

Cons: lack of cleanliness. Entry on to the ship was suprising and the exit was very slow to cause such a time delay.

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.

Ship Quality
ship seemed small and we could not walk or jog around the entire ship as on other ships. Exercise equipment was disfunctional and they needed more weights for exercising.
the comedian, band , and dance presentation was great. But the other entainment was substandard and a movie would have been better that an ill prepared yound adult who was poor in relating to others.
Food and Dining
the food was good and the waiters did well. But, the noise level was high in that neighboring guests were too loud and the waiters seemed frustrated with them and didn't know how to handled their behavior. We moved to another seating area.
Cabin / Stateroom
carpet was not vacumed. the room size was good. on 3 occasionans I was awakened from sleep for the ship made noise at the head of my bed. Not good.
Service and Staff
Morale seemed low as I watched waiters for the dailiy serving areas. The evening meal was done and served well.
Cozumel, Mexico
the people were friendly. but is seemed that they wanted me to buy from them and was a tourist town.
