Almost 5 star

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2015

First off, let me say overall, I very much enjoyed this cruise. The staff was friendly, attentive, and prompt. I purchased the "cheers" package for alcoholic beverages and it saved me a ton of money. I also elected to go with pre paid gratuities. The dining rooms were clean, elegant and offer great service and excellent food. Half Moon Cay is gorgeous and I highly recommend the snorkel excursion! However Do Not book the promo private island beach day at Balmore island. Food and drinks were way way over priced and staff is rude! This was the Only negative, the rest of the experience was truly Amazing!

Great!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Mar 16, 2015

The cruise was so fun! The entertainment was wonderful! The comedians were great! The food could have been better but they had certain food places open 24/7 which was great if you wanted a midnight snack after the casino! The shops had great deals! The staff was always very friendly! The rooms were always cleaned twice a day and they always made towel animals!

Miami to Nassau, Bahamas Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Mar 13, 2015

The arrangements made for us by Sue Kulig were excellent and we had good connections from Atlanta to Miami airports cruise terminal and boarding the ship and arriving at our reserved state room was flawless. The state room and the ocean view window were rather small. Otherwise the cabin was spic and span and we (me and the two of my guests) enjoyed the ambiance. The cabin crews and the staff manning the entire ship and especially the lunch and dining room staff were extremely nice, very cooperative and extremely helpful. Many kudos for them. My two guests enjoyed the Indian vegetarian cuisine. Alas my dining experience was not all that good especially when compared to those I had experienced on board Azamara, Holland America and National Geographic lines.  But the overall experience was pleasant and very enjoyable. Many thanks for the opportunity to savor the experience.

Simply the best experience

The staff was just amazing!! Very very helpful and courteous. One of the wait staff actually cut up my daughter's pancakes because my hands were full :)

The stateroom was very well maintained and clean at all times.

4 days of Sewage

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2015

I made a complaint to guest services regarding the smell of sewage in the hall on my floor and in the bathroom of my 5th floor room. I explained that it's smelled since I arrived in the hall and in my room and that when I flush the toilet it fills up with Brown smelly water instead of fresh water. Guest services said in a dismissive tone that they have no knowledge of it and that no one else complained but they would send someone to check the room soon. Well I Sat in the room for a few hours and no one ever came. Bottom line is I made a complaint and I was ignored. I slept with the bathroom door closed to hide the smell and sometimes opted to use the public restroom instead of my own bathroom in my room. I'm not a big complainer and its hard to get me not to enjoy myself so I didn't make 30 trips to guest services to complain more than once. I feel that a complaint such as mine dealing with human fecal waste is so serious it shouldn't require more than one complaint. In close quarters such as a cruise ship it's a very serious issue with a risk of people getting sick and it's a shame I was ignored. The only great thing about my trip was my maid service rep Sandy. He kept my room beautiful. Other than that Carnival and cruises.com let me down big time with this vacation.

Spring Break

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2015

Because Carnival caters to college students, I will never return. The pools and hot tubs were packed full. There were kids exposing them selves, urinating and yes, vomiting in the pool. They ran up and down the corridors all night long banging on doors and screaming. Nothing was ever done. These kids were dangerously  over served.

We should have been told it was spring break.

Good cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Mar 02, 2015

Good cruise but it did not occur to me until we were on the ship that it was also spring break for the college students.  We spent most of the time away from the pool and went to the quiet deck.

Second Mate

We had a great attitude so it was easy to have fun, relax and enjoy. There were people who would cut lines, and expect to be served on hand & foot all the time. Did not let us be bothered by them. The ship is great for first time cruisers, for families and kids. The bathrooms needs to be updated

The best foods were in the aft part of the ship. Avoid the pizza place, it's pathetic. Get to the pool early if you want a lounge chair and to actually use the pool.

Don't believe the bad reviews. There are some people that can't say anything good about anything. Make your own experience. I am so glad I gave Carnival a chance !!! I will be doing this again and again !!!
