Older ship so quality can not be compared to newer ship. Waterslides were fun. Half moon cay was amazing. Schedule was a little late for us and would have liked more entertainment that was PG rated.

Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date:

This was our first cruise and the first day I struggled with motion sickness really bad. The staff was really helpful and letting me know what I should do and eat. After I got the sea bands from the shop the sickness stopped. Our favorite part was half moon cay it was so beautiful and clean and really made our vacation. The staff was wonderful and always made you feel welcome. He had an amazing time and glad we chose carnival for our first cruise.

The cruise was great the captain cut the stay a day short due to weather that would impact the return trip. The Island was great the people that we meet were friendly and gave us plenty of help when we asked. It was a great experience

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5-hour tour of the island with Mack Bulford, owner of Bulford's Mini Bus Service. His tour encompassed all the major scenic areas of the island and was accompanied with an excellent narrative throughout. We highly recommend Mack's tour which incidently cost less than half of the cost of the same tour through the cruise line.

Food was good, except Grits were always cold, not a big deal....

Really need some new Shows,  Motor City has been there for years. Comedians were only fair and we had seen one of them on another cruise.  Enjoyed cruising.

Never been to Bermuda before, but we had to leave early.

The best part was the cruise itself. We loved the entertainment on the ship. The food was super. The worst part was getting through the parking lot before the cruise. I didn't think it was very organized. Also, we were supposed to get a 50 dollar credit on our onboard account but never received it.

Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date:

Freeport was closed due to the hurricane so we had 2 days in Nassau. The boat is very dated without a lot of activities to do. The casino has a very strong cigarette smell to it. The food was awesome in the dining room but on the lido deck often times was cold. Staff is awesome. They really went out of their way to make you feel.welcome!

We didn't have trouble with motion sickness surprisingly but we choose to stay at the bottom of the ship. Now that we know it isn't a issue we will try for a suite next time. Oh, when you get a king size bed; realized that means 2 twins pushed together so you have a line down the bed.

Experience all the activities and shows possible. Have a few days to rest up from your cruise when you return. Do NOT go dieting. Be prepared to gain a few pounds; however, you will lose it easily when you return home eating normal again.

Figure out where and what time your meals are served for some really good food. Plan your excursions so you don't feel rushed. Pick your room on above or below the action preferably floor six. Our one of the sites above the Lido deck
