Can anyone tell me if there's a sushi bar on the Holiday? Thanks.
Forget the Holiday!
Stick to the Large Ships. It's what you were "Weaned" on.
Hey Sodey, I couldn't pass this one up. 3 days and two nights for $100. That's a cheap weekend get-away. We leave tomorrow, Booked yesterday.
That sounds real encourging coming from someone who's been hanging out with Tom Odett.
I think that the sushie bar is probably something new on the conquest size ships. I know that when I went on the Holiday a few years ago, there was not a sushie bar.
Ps is this 2 day cruise out of new orleans?
We were on the Holiday in July. No Sushi bar or any special food bars of any type. Get used to cruise pizza, hamburgers, luncheon salad bar and lots of chloresterol for breakfast. Great crew on a small ship!
Check on Broadway by/around/in the Bus Stop. When we were on the Jubilee in April they were serving sushi in it's sister location. We almost missed it as it was only being served during certain hours. I think there were very small signs indicating what the times were.
Well, we didn't find the sushi. Looked a couple of times but got negative results. Thanks everyone for the info. We'll have to wait til Jan.
Had a marvelous time. Yes, it's a smaller ship, but, as previously posted, a great crew. Perfect weather, not quite as hot, and some good relaxing. Would go again in a heartbeat.
We did happen upon some chocolate sushi around the desserts, but , that looked about as appitising as a tuna fish milkshake.
So Turkeyman, what exactly did you do and where did you go for $100 in 2 to 3 days?
What did it really cost you?
We didn't go anywhere. Cruised the Gulf all day Sunday. Went to all the shows, did some trivia, and a little wagering. What it really cost us was $117. to get on the ship, +$20. for 2 days' gratuities, (you really don't want to know the wagering part).
The reason this trip was so cheap is because the Holiday had to extend its 5 day cruise previous to the " cruise to nowhere" due to Hurricane Ivan. We were on this cruise and went to Galveston before finally docking in New Orleans. We had a great time but were disappointed that Carnival did not let us know about this $100 cruise. Since we live in Louisiana we could have stayed on for a couple more days and had someone bring our kids to the port and had an inexpensive family get away. Instead of cancelling the next cruise (a 4 day) carnival elected to reduce the price for the cruise and go to no port and return on Monday to pick up the next 5 day cruise. We had a great time on ours and have already booked again out of New Orleans on Sensation next year as Holiday will be in Mobile. We did find sushi also but it was on the lunch menu in the fomal dining room. Also once it was at the buffet at lunch.
