Has anyone ever been on this ship before. I have heard that it is old, but everyone says that the service is amazing. What are your opinions? I am going in Jan. to Cozemel. Any advice for must sees there?

Many people prefer the smaller ships because the crew and staff seem to be "closer". (less folks,etc)

The only down side for me (and this is not a down side to many) is that the Holiday does not have the atrium that has become standard on today's cruise ships. Having sailed on her many times, that is the only down side I have ever found. (and that is just because I like sitting in the atrium and watching the people).

I recommend visiting cruise-reviews and reading Dave's review of the Holiday. After reading that, I am seriously considering a quickie cruise on her this winter.

The Holiday does not have an Atrium.

But the MS Holiday packs 46,000 tons of fun.

Exceptional service from Staff and Crew.

I would gladly sail on Her again.

I took my dad on the Holiday this past summer. I was a little concerned (post-FEMA, ships age, etc.). Plus I though I might have been ruined after ships like Conquest, but Holiday shines through. She's still quite a lady, and the crew takes very good care of her. I'm looking to go on the Celebration in October. Holiday's a good ship, and a great value.
I've got a holiday review at cruise reviews myself. And I'd sail on her again with no reservations (well, yes I'd NEED reservations.. you know what I mean).
Things to do in Cozumel, SHOP!!! If there are kids involved, my daughter has voted for the excursion to Playa-Mia, and that's probably what we'll do. The Mayan ruins are always good, but make for a long day.

We sailed on Holiday in October '06. The crew was indeed terrific. Holiday does show some signs of age. We had a window cabin on main, next to the last cabin aft. It was a bit noisy. The water was a little bumpy, but not too bad. Overall it was a great cruise, and we would do it again. Food was terrific. The ports of call are very fun. But I might try to get a cabin nearer the front of the ship.

I have cruise on the Holiday twice. I would do it again. It is small compaired to the mega ship but over all it is a wonderful cruise. Holiday has the most repeat cruisers of any ship, they must be doing something right...macmom
