M.S. Holiday is a small ship. It was clean and in decent repair.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food was very bad. The taste, choices, and preparation. Some items were over cooked, some items were undercooked, too seasoned or not enough. The food was a let down. Also, tea, coffee, and lemonade were provided but soft drinks are EXTRA! Too much extra cost involved.

Ship Quality

Small ship but well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
That bed (queen) was COMFORTABLE!

Pros: The staff was vigilant and friendly. How DO they remember so many names? Our stateroom was clean and comfortable. We got lucky, the weather could NOT have been better. There were plenty of activities if you were so inclined but you could also do what you wanted without feeling pressured.

Cons: The food was horrible! Breakfast, lunch, and diner. Seasonings were odd and bad tasting. The food, was very dissapointing. Also, EVERYTHING but the food, tea and coffee costs extra and overpriced. This is certainly NOT an economical way to vacation.

Recommends Holiday? No.
