Congrats, tncruiseman... If my math is correct, this will be your 10th Carnival cuise. Enjoy all of the wonderful vip perks and don't forget to take advantage of the laundry service.

I only counted 8...tncruiseman tricked us by throwing "03-05 CaribbeanPrincess" in there. At least he is one sailing closer.

Yes, I just noticed that too. At least he is one closer as you said. Time for new glasses!

We have been on Holiday twice, most recent last May. Indeed it has been a Fun Ship. As mentioned by others Mobile is a great port, probably the easiest I have done. The people on the Holiday have been incredible. Our best ever cabin steward and wait team were on our two different Holiday cruises. We plan to cruise with her one more time before she leaves service this fall.

Ooops, missed the Caribbean Princess... That is what I get for mixing posting with vodka. Anyways, you are just one away after the October sailing!

Yep, I'm only at 8 right now. Wouldn't it be a good promotion to be able to use cruises on sister company ships! Might as well go one step further in a promo to get people to try other lines....honor membership status from other competing lines for a brief period.

Actually, you can use your Past Guest status on any of Carnival's sister brands to get Past Guest rates when available. It would be neat if they would give full benefits. I would be more inclined to try one of those Princess ships.

precisely my point! If Carnival would honor RCCL status, we might even get SONNY V on board a Carnvial ship! Otherwise, I cannot blame him one bit for his loyalty!

Well "P", my take on Holiday is pretty much an echo of most everyone elses.
Holiday is a fine lady, she's not the youngest girl at the ball, but she's still worth a look or two. If I had the time I'd cruise one more time on her before she retires, but as it is, I'm bound for Imagination in November and Fascination on New Years.
Holiday is a great ship, lots of character. Steve is a great CD (albeit a bit goofy, but that's what makes a great CD). Mobile is a great terminal. What more can I say?
Look up some of our reviews over at cruisereviews and see what I wrote about her. Dave got reviews over there too.
