Oh my! Seeing the photos of the Festivale brought back so many memories. That was the ship we took our very first cruise aboard. Had so much fun we her on our 2nd. We thought it couldn't get any better than that but boy did it! Thanks for posting the video it was a walk down memory lane.

Festivale was my first cruise too back in 1983 and I still have the key ring I bought on that cruise. I have been using it every day since then.

Thanks Nut2. I too enjoyed those "old" ships. Great walk down memory lane for me and the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita).

I never sailed on the old ships. But I loved see them and the progression to the Splendor and the Dream. I love that the Splendor has a covered pool great for Alaska.

The old Mardi Gras was our first cruise back in '83--Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios. Didn't know any better so we thought we were sailing in the lap of luxury !!
But, if it were still sailing today I think I just might book it one more time for old times sake !!
