Hi Guys, I am booking an End of the School Year cruise and since I have been on 3 on the Fantasy since August, I thought I'd try the Holiday. You guys all speak so highly of her, but what is the night life like? I love dancing. Do they have a steel drum band on the Lido Deck with room to shake a leg? Deck Parties? What other dance venues are there? I like 70's, not really into the bump and grind the youngsters do these days in the Disco on the Fantasy. Any guidance from you experts would be greatly appreciated.

-3rd Cruise Fantasy, 3/08 ... Again!!! I also love Mexico!!!
-4th Cruise Another Fall Break 4-day on the Fantasy, 10/08

I've been on Holiday twice and enjoyed each cruise a lot. You'll sail away to "Sweet Home Alabama". Crowds can change from week to week, but in October and March when we were on it, the night life died pretty early. The Fantasy had much more "night life" going on throughout the promenade, but then again it is a larger ship.

In February, they did have the steal drum band one night. It was really cool, but that was about it for night life on the Lido deck. The little bar by the casino (canít remember the name) seemed to have something going on each night. Everyone looked to be having a lot of fun there.

I almost forgot Mexican Fiesta night, but it was pretty tame. I think it would have been a little more fun, but high winds put a damper on things.

Hey Mississippi! We'll being going on the Holiday June 2nd. We've been on her before. As far as I'm concerned, she's just as fun as others I've been on. The food is great. The crew is friendly and accommodating. Too me, it's just great to get away from reality. Just have fun!!
P.S I'm a Pascagoula gal myself.

Hi luvs2sail, Welcome to Cruise-Chat!

I loved the little bar by the casino too. On some nights they have a musician on the promenade across from the bar. No shortage of fun and partying if that is what one likes. On the other hand, there are plenty of quiet places for those that don't.

Welcome aboard,

You mean the Bus Stop? That is my evening haunt on the Holiday. This is where I have my evening martini(s).

There is a jazz band that plays there once or twice during a cruise. Very good.

That is the one I mean Dave. I can't recall if they had a band or a solo artist, That was back in 2001 though.

Anyway, it was a fun place to spend some time in the evenings. I loved the New Orleans type decor too. It would be a great place for a jazz band.
