The smell was unbearable

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

 First of all I was supposed to stay on the seventh floor which will insisted it was the main floor and put me on the fifth floor M 62. Went in the room  King size bed not to twins    Clean the room once a day never saw room attendant but one time. The room smelled like septic tank. Couldn't breath made my grandson and I both sick. Our toilets were fine the people on the floor said they had reported it and everyone acted like  they didn't know what we were talking about. Also smell and elevators and on ninth floor while picking out pictures. Dining room put us in that far corner next to service three couples    Three women with three boys service was so slow we had to leave before dessert    It was my grandson's first cruise and I did not complain because he didn't know that's the way it supposed to be.  We felt like an outcast at the formal dining area. They didn't even take our photos on formal night.  I have to say that that was the smoothest ship I've ever been on you couldn't even feel it move. My first time on ecstasy and my last

I enjoyed the entertainment and the martini bar. I would suggest more kids pool events other than that every thing was awesome. The steam room in the fitness room was not warm but the sauna was good. The gym equipment was pretty good.

The best part of the cruise was the dining and comedy shows. The toilet situation 

with the overflowing and constant smells was a problem. Also there was only one pool which was extremely overcrowded. The staff was friendly and polite.

Great Vacation Cruises

The Carnival Ecstasy cruise was our second cruise, we already knew what to expect on our cruise and were not disappointed.  The staff was extremely friendly and made us feel like we were being pampered.  Enjoyed visiting Nassau, did not overly enjoy Freeport as much though.  Freeport is more industrial and we did not like the beach we were taken to, it had a ton of sea weed on the beach and yes I realize sea weed will be washed up often after storms.  There didn't seem to be a lot to visit on Freeport.  The only other thing I would have liked to see was more "activities" on the Ecstasy, we played ping pong, putt putt golf, and the water slides.  The pool was tooooo small and couldn't get more than 10 - 15 people comfortably in it while there was over 1000+ people on the cruise.  There was never enough deck chaise lounges either, but all in all we enjoyed our vacation!  We will cruise again with Carnival but will probably choose a bigger ship with more activities.

This cruise offered something for everyone in our family -- a 'serenity deck' for quiet sunbathing and reading, pools for water fun and all kinds of shows and 'nightlife' opportunities.  The food was amazing, the staff beyond friendly -- everything was superb!

We had a great time and the food was excellent! It was just long enough to reconnect with my wife from our busy life. All of the ship personnel were so courteous and polite. We are so happy we went on the Ecstasy.

Poor quality shows, cheaply done, terrible prizes, and always late and chaotic.  Drinks very weak for price.  Pool way too crowded, as well as sauna.

 

Enjoyed food and good service in general.

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
