DO NOT USE SHORE EXCURSION GROUP! They will take your money and give you empty excuses in return.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 30, 2014


Though our Cruise was booked through Cruises.Com and went well. Our Shore Excursion through Shore Excursion Group was devastating.  We saved for 4 years to go on a Honeymoon to Cozumel.  The highlight of our trip was supposed to be( the sail and snorkel trip) the best experience of our life.  When time came to go on the excursion, we happily waited in line for an hour just to find out passenger services didn't have us listed. So sadly we went to the dock to see who was to take us to the excursion. No one knew what we were talking about.  To our dismay, when we returned home we were given excuses about having to print out from home the itinerary. We never knew and we even paid $25.00 expedite charge so nothing went wrong.  Still no refund but our bank is doing a fraud investigation. We should get reimbursed but it shouldn't have been this  troublesome.  They "SEG " are not affiliated with any Cruise line. Do not throw your money away. Please Share!

Clean and friendly staff but the food....not really

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 30, 2014


We had a good time on this cruise. First time on Carnival. Previously only been on Disney. Overall the staff was friendly, ship and quarters clean and activities and entertainment were good. Only 3 complaints. First, the food left a lot to be desired. Admittedly, I am probably a bit snobby with food as I cook myself but none of the food really tasted good. Even the dinner plates were bland and generally not good. Second, the bedding was not changed daily, only remade. We had some stains from some wine and the next day the bed was nicely made but the stains still there. Third, the disembarking was painful. Long lines, a lot of confusion and a very long wait....

Not at all pleased with this experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


From the time we arrived in the port in Miami, this trip was not at all what we expected.   Everyone with Carnival was rushed and either downright rude or just indifferent.  The embarkation process went rather smoothly, but again it was just the attitude of the people.  Once on board we encountered issues with one of our rooms.  The beds were not configured properly...they were literally sitting in the middle of the floor. One of them was placed under a shelf so that you had to sleep upside-down in the bed or hit hit your head, the other was placed so that your head was directly under the air vent and right up against the vanity, rendering it useless.   Every time we got off or on the boat we were herded like cattle, the employees were very rude, inconsiderate, and rushed.  One of them even proclaiming that this was the Carnival way.

DISAPPOINTED

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


IVE NEVER BEEN ON A CRUISE BEFORE I BOUGHT THE FASTER TO THE FUN WHICH WAS A EXTRA 50 DOLLARS BIG WASTE OF MONEY THERE WAS NOTHING FAST ABOUT IT.  STILL HAD TO STAND IN LINE THE ONE LADY THAT WAS GETTING EVERYONE IN LINE SAID SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHY THEY SOLD THAT IT DOESN'T DO ANYONE ANY GOOD.  OUR LUGGAGE WAS MISPLACED MY SON HAD TO GO LOOK FOR IT.  THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH ADULT ENTERTAINMENT UNLESS YOU WANTED TO SIT IN THE CASINO WITH CIGARETTE SMOKE AROUND YOU  FOR TRIVIA OR PAY FOR THE CASINO.  IT WAS JUST DISAPPOINTING TO NOT HAVE MORE ADULT ENTERTAINMENT THAN WHAT THEY HAD.

Good Starter Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


This was our first cruise as my girlfriend and I enjoyed a fine vacation to Key West and Cozumel. Here are my thoughts on our experience:

 

Embarkation: We purchased the Faster to The Fun package and got to the front of the line in regards to registration and boarding, which was extremely convenient. We were able to get straight to having fun without any issue. Our luggage was delivered to our room very quickly and was able to change and get straight to the pool deck.

 

Food: Very marginal. Some foods were decent, some was not so good. I did like the varieties they offered but thought the foods were a tad bland. For the pool deck foods, very bland due to the heat of the kitchen and the outdoor area. The fine dining room was very well done in presentation, but the food was small in portions and the taste again was average. The best food we had were in Key West and Cozumel.

 

Pool: I get that the Carnival Ecstasy is the second oldest ship in the Carnival fleet, but their pool size was rather disappointing. It's not very big (about as big as 2 above-ground pools put together) at all and during peak times, very crowded. You don't really "swim", but rather, get wet to cool off. Also, the jacuzzis were very small in that only 4-5 people would fill one up. There were lots of kids on board and they made sure that both the pool and jacuzzi was in use. You had to get to the pool in order to get a lounge chair and to make the most of your time there. Thankfully, the Serenity area was a nice retreat from the pool when wanting to use the jacuzzis. Also, the pools are salt water and was so salty that I could have seasoned a meal in it. The cruise line needs to cut back on the salt.

 

Entertainment: We got to see the "Love & Marriage" (aka The Newlywed Game) show and it was really funny. We also played along from our seats. We also took in the Hasbro: The Game Show and it was really cool to experience this. It felt like being in the audience of an actual game show. We also caught the adult-only comedy show and we laughed ourselves silly. I got featured in the Kevin Burke act and Will Mafori had us almost rolling in the aisles. It was a fun time.

 

Stateroom and Service: Without question, this was a highlight of the trip. Our stateroom steward, Yoko, was on top of his game and made sure our room was clean, always stocked with towels, and even made sure we had a bucket of ice to keep our champange cold. He was very friendly and took care of us. It didn't matter of what time it was, he made sure our experience was memorable. The rest of the waitstaff on board was also very friendly and was always attentive to us. If we wanted a drink, someone was nearby to get it for us. If we needed a question answered, someone was there to get us the correct information. Also, guest services was very attentive to our issues and was very gracious. Jacques, our cruise director, made sure that all events were announced on time and knew when things were going on. Very well done.

 

Ports of Call: We had a blast in Key West and Cozumel, but wished we had more time in Key West. We only spent 6 hours in Key West, which was definitely not enough. We only got to have 4 good hours experience all that we could while the last hour was spent in line awaiting the trolley shuttle that took us back to NAS Key West where our ship was docked.  The Carnival Security team was very kind to us as we exited and re-entered the ship, but very attentive to not let anything undermine ship security.

 

Disembarkation: We were in no rush to get off the ship and were among the last to get off. But we were able to get our bags at baggage claim and went through the CBP checkpoint without an issue. Also we were able to get shuttled back to Ft. Lauderdale without a hitch - a very smooth experience.

 

Overall: It's a solid 3 of 5 stars. I give it 3 stars in that the food was marginal, the length in the ports of call was small, and the pool was tiny. I understand the boat is heading for a dry-dock refurbishment and hope they fix many things. It definitely is in need of improvements, but it was a pleasant experience for our first time on a cruise line. I would like to try another cruise line to see the differences. I recommend this cruise, but the upgrades are needed.

Not impressed

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 16, 2014


This was an older ship and there were not as many dining options or activities as other ships. The cabin was very basic, no refrigerator in the room and shower was broke.

OK

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Ecstasy | Sail Date: Jun 16, 2014


Our trip on Carnival Ecstasy was a good,quick, last minute get-away to start off summer.  The ship is really nothing special.  Very small pool (our pool in our Florida backyard is about as big).  Our son did enjoy the mini golf and the fitness center/spa is quiet nice.  Dining in dining rooms is well done-well staffed, quite good food, good selections of offerings; buffets not so much- long lines for mediocre buffet food.

 

Oceanview cabin is fine especially if you don't plan to spend much time in cabin.  Nothing fancy- although nice fluffy bedding & comfortable beds made for good sleep.

 

Dissappointment was the Circle C kids club and activities for kids.  We chose Carnival for its reputation for being more fun for kids.  The kids club was basically a room with a Wii.  Not enough there or activities organised and advertised to attract enough other kids to make it fun and worthwhile to return. 

 

Entertainment- At least there were some family-friendly activities that we could do together.  We enjoyed the Hasbro Game Night and both family friendly and adult comedy shows, but otherwise not enough on the ship to get me to cruise on that ship again (even for a short get-away).

126 Tips for Carnival Ecstasy

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 !!!

I loved eating breakfast on the Lido deck. They had short lines and I loved the omelets they made for us

No children? Definitely check out the Serenity Deck, a lounging area with two jacuzzi's for adults only . Super comfy lounges, conveniently located aft, right below the lido deck so grabbing a snack or drink was super easy.

The omelet buffet on the Lido deck is very good. Always, always get the chocolate melting cake!

get to the food lines early because they can get extremely crowded

Good price good service allfun

Room Service! Utilize it....awesome!!!

Should have taken more advantage of the sit-down brunch...delicious!!

Defiantly go to the comedy shows! So funny!!

The water slide is fun for young and old alike.

Make the effort to get up early and watch the sun rise/ get breakfast. It's totally worth it!!!

Try Anytime dining. It is nice to have choices around what time you want to eat especially when you go ashore.

The lido is the place for short food lines and diverse fare but the dining rooms are well worth the short wait.The layout of the ship is easily learned and easily accessible.

we enjoyed the anytime dinning also the Lido for anytime outside eating. The self serve ice cream is always a hit.

love the sit down dinner the food was great

If you want some peace and quiet - go to the adults only serenity deck - very nice.

If you able,get on the anytime dinning list.You will not only meet new people at each meal, but also eat the best food on the ship and not miss any events because of being pined down to a set time to eat.

We suggest going with the open seating dinner plan rather than the set time because you never know what you'll be doing and you can eat whenever you want. We enjoyed our meals and talked to everyone. Enjoy.

There's a wonderful deck under the lido deck for adults only. Was a fabulous place to have quiet sun and ability to read and chat without a lot of hussle bussle.
