4 Night Western Caribbean (Mobile Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 12, 2007
Ship: Holiday
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Not what we expected, based on what friends had told us about cruises in general. Crowds everywhere; food, pools,activities. The crew handled most everything but it wasn't what we really expected. It could be the timing, July and family vacations. Food was adequate but not outstanding.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Our waiters were outstanding, taking time to meet our needs and keep bottles of wine for the next meal. Variety and portions were average.


3 out of 5
Variety of activities but some were not well organized.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
For all the reviews that we read about people saying they barely noticed hundreds of children on the ship, that was not our experience. Kids running wild all over the ship at all hours.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Hairs(not ours) on everything. Pools got dirty very quickly. Overall ship cleanliness was not bad.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Service was spotty and cleanliness left something to be desired.
3 out of 5
