Had a great time

Sail Date: July 09, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The Holiday was great. A small ship, but big enough. The crew aboard the ship are attentive to every detail. They truly went beyond the call of duty for us. The ship is an older one, but still in very good condition. Rooms were clean and well sized. All aspects of dining were great. Good food, great service, awesome atmosphere. If you want to be pampered, you want to go on this ship.

Pros: Food, Service, Camp Carnival for the Kids

Cons: Be careful when booking. Priceline advertised $100.00 carnival cash, even sent me an e-mail showing I would recieve it, but never delivered. Insure all of your details before you make your payment

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Not enough can be said about the food quality and the awesome service we recieved aboard the Holiday. Truly the best part of the trip.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
This crew does not appear to be working a "job". They give the impression that they truly are happy to serve their guest. Almost feel like each crew member is an owner. That's how much they exceeded our expectations.
Children's Programs
Camp carnival was great. My 7 year old loved every minute of his time there.
