the cruise was divine. Everyone was so courteous and the food was divine. I really enjoy the cheeseburgers and fries on the Lido deck. Overall, I would rate the cruise excellent....My family and I are going on a cruise the end of September out of Long Beach on Carnival. Carnival is the BEST cruise ships as far as I am concerned, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALLTHE VERY HARD WORKERS ON CARNIVAL CRUISE LINES.
Found a few things lacking in this trip. We have done this trip 4 times before on the Imagination and Inspiration. The Ecstasy is the same class ship but service was not the best. Wanted cinnamon for my coffee and some of the people brought it and other said they don't have it. Once when they said they don't have it I told her I have had it brought every morning. Then she went and got it.
I came to party.I took my 19yr daughter with me I'm 45..The DJ played the same songs more than twice & needs some up to date music.Inside the music was alot better .The live bands are awesome..I enjoyed the Motown Show..Those performancers are full of energy..The alcohol was weak..The stateroom was okay..NO chocolate on the pillows..only one towel animal.even though it was two beds...This was my 2nd boat ride & sorry my Trip on Carnivals Sensation was WAY better.Glad that it was my first experience because I probably would be reluctant to go again..My overall opinion is it was okay.but not great..My daughter enjoyed herself (but she doesnt know what I know) it was her 1st cruise which it was like my 1st
This was my husband's first cruise, so we choice a 3 night trip. We had such a good time. The food was exceptional! Especially in the dining room!! The table of couples we were assigned to was awesome. We had a great time getting to know them and we ended up doing some of the activities together. The shows were excellent, and we cannot praise the staff enough. They were very attentive and even remembered our names.
First time on a cruise ship I didn't know what to expect. So I read up on everything and anything possible to prepare me for this trip. The staff was AMAZING!!!! The people were so friendly and nice. We met great people and the food was good as well. Although this was a family trip, someone should have warn me that it was basically like vegas on a ship. There was many bachelor and bachelorette parties going on. It was like a spring break cruise. I didn't mind it, it was fun to people watch.
I wasn't very impressed with this trip. I Have gone on other cruise lines and this was my least favorite. There were very limited options for activities/entertainment for children (I traveled with a 10 year old). I was not impressed with Half Moon Cay. There was no good place to go to if shade was needed other than returning to the cruise. The lunch location was a far walk.
We enjoyed the Great food but the Desserts were not fresh. Commendable service, both with the dining and cabin. Dated decor made it feel datedn but nice cabin. Some good entertainment like the shows and games, just disappointed in the comedy being vulgar.
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
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
