Carnival Holiday

Carnival Cruise Ship Holiday

A Carnival Cruise Holiday Review can give you lots of info about this great ship, but the only real way is to experience it first hand! Built in 1985 and refurbished in March of 2002, Carnival Holiday was given an overhaul that improved both form and function to create the brilliant cruise ship that sails today. The 47,000-ton Carnival Holiday cruise ship makes her home in Mobile, Alabama, but she doesn't stay for long before she's heads out to the Western Caribbean on 4- or 5-day journeys. The Carnival cruise ship Holiday is the perfect getaway ship!

Carnival Cruise Holiday Review - Destinations

Whether you've decided to take the Carnival Cruise Ship Holiday 4-day trip with a stop in Cozumel; the Carnival Cruise Ship Holiday 5-day trip with stops in Cozumel and Costa Maya; or the Carnival Cruise Ship Holiday 5-day voyage to Cozumel and Calica/Playa del Carmen, these Carnival Cruise Ship Holiday cruises will indelibly imprint themselves on your memory.

Carnival Cruise Holiday Review - Cozumel
When people talk about Cozumel, Mexico, it is only inevitable that they soon start talking about the world under the waves. It's no wonder why this place is such a popular port of call with people taking a Carnival cruise holiday. No matter if you're an experienced diver or a novice, the coral reefs are a stunning are a sight to behold. The Palancar Reef is one of Cozumel's most famous and spectacular dive sites, with yellow tail fish weaving in and out of coral beds of all shapes and colors. It's a world few have seen, one that words have a hard time doing justice you'll just have to see it yourself.

In fact, Carnival Cruise Line Holiday makes it easy with a Carnival Cruise Holiday scuba diving shore excursion! After you dry off from your diving adventure, discover what Cozumel above sea level offers: spicy and flavorful foods; welcoming people; beaches; jungles; ancient history and captivating modernity.

Carnival Cruise Holiday Review - Calica/Playa del Carmen
Another stop on your Carnival cruise holiday to the Caribbean is Calica/Playa del Carman. This seaside city's architecture carries on the rustic fishing village atmosphere it used to have, although now with an unmistakable contemporary European flair. That European attitude is imbedded in more than just the buildings; beachgoers often make a habit of topless sunbathing.

This Carnival Cruise Line Holiday destination gives you the peace and quiet to ruin the spine of a paperback while lying on a beach towel, as well as the lively atmosphere that makes for a great party. Take a Carnival Cruise Line Holiday shore excursion and ride an ATV along a narrow pathway in a verdant jungle; fall in with practically any type of watersport that you can imagine; discover the food, clothing, jewelry, and countless other goods at Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue). As you can tell, a Carnival Cruise Line Holiday trip to this place doesn't lack for much!

Carnival Cruise Holiday Review - Costa Maya
Costa Maya is great resort city in which its visitors revel in the beauty of its natural surroundings. In fact, most of the Carnival Cruise Line Holiday shore excursions available on your Carnival cruise holiday adventure are focused around nature: beach getaways, snorkeling adventures, and kayak trips.

However, for those that want to explore the remnants of the Mayan civilization, this is a wonderful place to do so. The Mayans are a civilization in the Meso-American family of cultures with one of the most storied pasts, as well as one that offered a lot to the modern world, such as advances in astronomy, timekeeping, and complex math. (Did you know that the Mayans invented the concept of "zero"?) The many relics of their history make for an awesome Carnival Cruise Line Holiday shore excursion.

The Carnival Holiday Americana Lounge is Las Vegas entertainment afloat. The Gaming Club Casino lets you get in on all the major action you'd find in a casino on the Las Vegas strip: blackjack, roulette, poker, slots, craps, and more.

Carnival Entertainment

Don't forget that you told your new friends you'd meet up with them to toast the setting of the sun on yet another day on your Carnival Holiday! Hey, why not meet them at Bus Stop Bar! Or how about Doc Holiday's?

Well, either way, each bar has an inviting atmosphere and is a great way to cap off the night. But what if you're not ready to go to sleep? Then shake it up a little with a dance at the tropical-themed nightclub Tahiti Lounge.

Whew! what a day! But now that this Carnival Cruise Holiday Review is over, don't you feel the urge to see what this ship is all about for yourself?
