Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

For a ship that is getting ready to be retired, it still has some good points.
The dining room is still top notch. Most of the staff are excellent, and of
course the shows in the lounge are great,. Late night comedian should
have been in the lounge as opposed to Doc Holidays because it was
standing room only and not comfortable at all. Our outlet in the bathroom
did not work, which made things a bit difficult and our floor often smelled
like sewage. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the bed/bedding
are the best! The port was very easy to leave from in Mobile. The buffet was almost the exact same everyday at lunch. I tired of it quite quickly. Dining room is much better. Carnival was great to have hand sanitizer at a number of locations on the ship!

Pros: The dining room experience

Cons: The buffet

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? Yes!
