Great Vacation

Sail Date: August 16, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise so we had nothing to compare. We had heard horror stories from others who had taken cuises and expected the worst. It turned out to be one of the best experiences we have ever had. Except for one bag being misplaced when departing the ship, staff, accomidations, and services were wonderful.

Pros: The comfortable bed.

Cons: Too Short

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? Yes!

Ship Quality
We understand it is an older ship so some wear and tear could be noted but nothing causing any inconvenience.
Food and Dining
Diet cheesecake awful. The rest of the food excellent.
Cabin / Stateroom
Loved the towell animals.
Service and Staff
Purser desk did not seem to be up on location and time of several activities.
Cozumel, Mexico
Great shopping. Ship crew gave lots of information on this port so we hit the port ready to shop.
Don't Miss: The view.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Did the shopping/horse show. Food so-so, and show a dud. An experience. Wouldn't recommend to anyone else. Beautiful port.
