My wife and I are cruising on 8-5-04. The only child is off to college on 8-15-04 and we are also celebrating our 20th anniversary. We haven't sailed Carnival before but we've heard many good things about the holiday. We are in our early 50's and are tired of Princess Cruises and all of the old people. We have sailed on princess 6 times. Hopefully, the Holiday will be a younger crowd. Can't wait.
