Let's Cruise through a Hurricane?!!!!!!!

Sail Date: September 08, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Holiday is showing her age. The staff was excellent. Riding through Hurricane IKE was a bad idea on the part of the capitan. The staff finally posted barf bags midweek. The pools are small and the crew had them drained for half the cruise. At one point the boat completely lost power for about 10 minutes during the early evening. It was pitch black and seemed like we were dead in the water. Very rough seas due to the hurricane.

Pros: the food, the ports

Cons: the "rocking and rolling" ship rode through hurricane. really rough

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.

Cozumel, Mexico
We did the el cid snorkeling day pass. It was an all inclusive hotel that we had the run of. Drinks included. They had a great staff. It is right off the pier so you walk there from the ship. Very convenient
Don't Miss: snorkeling
