Z - Old - Holiday

Everyday is a Holiday, for you to celebrate however you please, aboard this fantastic floating resort. Carnival''s Holiday is worth every penny that was spent to build her. From the moment she started to embark passengers for her maiden cruise, Holiday has celebrated with over 1,400 passengers twice a week. Because of the large number of satisfied cruisers, Holiday has received a 98% vote of confidence. The small two percent must have been looking for a quiet, sophisticated cruise ship and not the big, and sometimes loud, FUN SHIP that she is. As many as 1,850 passengers a week can fill the upper berths with Laughing, Partying, Feasting, not to mention Sunning, Sightseeing and enjoying their time aboard. Carnival Holiday, it is just more fun.


Once the sunset, the fun has yet to reach its climax. Once you are within Carnival Holiday's perimeters your entertainment opportunities are endless. Our crew specializes in making your cruise memorable to the max. The Carnival Holiday is equipped to suit any and every preference. Our accommodations consist of leisure hot spots from our non stop action Gaming Club Casino or taking a load off and having a drink at the Wharf Bar and Grill.

For more intimate dining, many ships feature a reservations-only supper club with a Manhattan-chic setting and a menu that includes steakhouse favorites. Every meal is a celebration in our reservations-only Supper Club.

Casual Dining

From the extravagant midnight buffets (on select ships), to the European-style cafes, sushi bars and 24-hour pizzeria, you'll discover a myriad of palate-pleasing favorites that even the most discriminating diner will enjoy.

Satisfy Every Appetite

We didn't forget about our youngest cruisers. Our children's menus feature plenty of kid-pleasing favorites including spaghetti and meatballs, hamburgers, hotdogs, pizza, assorted desserts and much more.
