We have been on both Fantasy [April 28th] and Holiday [October 6th] this year, and we did find Holiday to be in better overall condition. Ships, like hotels, go through several ups and downs in the cosmetic and short-life equipment areas during the longer service life of the basic systems. I am happy that there are a lot of folks who write off a ship after ten years. It reduces the demand for the ones I like most. I could never figure why people call a ship like Holiday too small and then pay major bucks to sail on a luxury ship half its size.
Those are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others. ---Groucho Marx
