The Rice Family Cruisers
For several years, we had discussed taking a cruise before Dale left for college. Since he will be a senior in high school this year, now seemed like a good time.
We chose Carnival Holiday, which sails on 4 and 5 day cruises out of Mobile, Alabama to Cozumel and Casa Maya, Mexico. The city built a beautiful and very efficient dock specifically for Holiday, making the boarding process much more efficient than with Ecstacy (Janet and my 20th anniversary cruise) out of Galveston, Texas.
Holiday is a bit old and decrepit like me, so we suited each other well. However, both the food service and cabin service won top honors among all of Carnival's 22 ship fleet, and we can testify - both were top flight, er, swim. Whatever, we had a wonderful trip.
This is the Rice Family Cruise Story.
