We just returned last saturday from a 5 day cruise on the Holiday. Overall we had a great trip but like some have mentioned she is an old ship and there is alot of vibrations if your room is in the rear. If noises bother you I would take a 'noise machine'. Probably the thing that I noticed the most was the brown water and the shower temp was hard to regulate. One night we took a cold shower because we couldn't get any hot water. The ship looks great for her age and the service was very good but like alot of us, the older we get the creeker we get. Overall we had a great cruise and I know you will too.
