Hi papa2cool, just came across this site and was reading through posts...we are going on the holiday July 14 for our first cruise..it will be me, DH, DS18, DS15 & DD13..we have booked a balcony suite..love the thought of having a balcony
I'm a member of another site(not sure if I can post the name here..lol)
and there have been lots of post lately about the Holiday...mostly concerning brown water and the noro virus..even though I have never cruised her I did my homework before I booked
She is the oldest ship in the CC fleet and also the smallest..I kept this in mind and decided that she would be a great cruise for us first timers
I like the thought of a smaller less overwhelming ship especially it being our first cruise..plus the reviews of the food and crew are really great!
I have posted defending the Holiday(on the other site) because I have read many post that accuse the ship of causing the noro virus
we all know that its the passengers bringing it on board to blame...
I'm not saying that the Holiday doesnt have her problems but who wouldnt at her age? I think we all can agree that as we get older it shows..
Anyway its good to hear from someone that has actually been on the Holiday recently and not just speculation...
Hope I dont get flamed for posting this but there is always someone that will not be happy with whatever ship they choose..I'm a very positive, laid back and easy to please kind of person..so I think the Holiday will be perfect for us
