Excellent Cruise w/ Exceptional Service

Sail Date: September 11, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

The ship was in very good condition. We were most impressed with the service we received aboard the Carnival Holiday. Very peronalized service and care were taken of us during the cruise. It is the smaller of the Carnival fleet, but with that you get more peronal attention from the crew. Our Maitre D', cabin steward, head waitress and waiter all treated us as if we were their only guests. I heard no complaints from any guests on the ship regarding service. The ship was very stable and the weather was beautiful. The crew kept the ship very clean and were always available if needed. We will gladly sail the Holiday again!

Pros: Wonderful service & food

Cons: boat drill - life vests were extremely dirty & foul smelling

Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel is doing a wonderful job rebuilding after the hurricane. They still have no docks for the ships so guests are transported via water taxi (no charge). The port is more beautiful now than before the hurricane. Shopping was good and we made some great deals with local merchants on items.
Don't Miss: For great food and fun take a taxi into town to Carlos and Charlies for food, drinks and great fun !!
Calica, Mexico
Calica is building their port, really nothing to do here but they have arranged for taxis to take guests to Playa Del Carmen for $10 a taxi flat rate where there is ample shopping and restaurants! We had a great time and the plaza in Playa Del Carmen where the shops are is beautiful ! Many water features and a great view!
Don't Miss: Lunch on the upstairs balcony at Carlos and Charlies in Playa Del Carmen with a view of the ocean that is so beautiful! great food and drinks too !
