Carnival Holiday Cruise to Mexico

After Moundville, we got on the boat for our five day cruise.  I had been concerned that spending so much time at sea might be a bit boring, but instead the experience was so astounding that we'll definitely repeat it soon.  I summed it up in my second editted video --- this one's shorter and tighter than the last one, I promise. :-)

This post is part of our Moundville and Cruise to Mexico honeymoon series.  Read all of the entries:

I'm sure Carnival would love to see your video. They're very fond of such testimonials.

I worked on a Carnival ship in the South Caribbean for 2 6-month contracts. I found much of the experience to be troublesome including the waste and excess consumption. I DID, however, love many of the things you mentioned. I could spend hours watching the water and the sky, day or night. I had trouble sleeping on the ship so I did a lot of night watching. I was careful to arrange things so that my contracts were over winter, since I live fairly far north in Canada and I also wished to avoid hurricanes.

You picked a good ship. I always heard good stories about the Holiday.

It's great to hear your firsthand experience! I think that if I hadn't sucked Mark into the farm life, he might have tried to work on a cruise ship, though I'm sure there are a lot of really negative sides (especially as crew.)

It's funny the different things people say about Holiday --- some folks like you (and us!) think it's a great ship, but so many people think it's little, old, and ugly.
