Our cruise aboard the Ecstacy was another short 4 night cruise, but we loved every minute of it. The ship is showing signs of age in some areas - a few tiles missing in washrooms, bits of rust here and there, but I look my age too! LOL

Our room this time was a porthole right near the front of the ship and it was great. We felt very little movement and the porthole windows gave us the daylight we wanted when we woke up each morning.

The crew were great and very friendly all the time, and we had no complaints about anything. The food was from the older menu which we preferred, and it was so nice to have tablecloths in the MDR each evening.

We chose to wander Nassau on our own and then he'd to a local beach for a few hours, which was close to the ship. It was an enjoyable day, but I think we would stay onboard if we cruise to Nassau again.

I don't think we will book a short cruise like this again - the time flys by way too fast to really enjoy all the ship has to offer. Happy

Cabin / Stateroom
Very comfy, and quiet even though we were at the front of the ship.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Easy and fast with Faster to the Fun.
Ship Quality
Older ship, but always kept clean.
Destinations and Excursions
Nassau was ok, but not nearly as nice as the last time I visited a few years ago
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Always friendly and courteous.
Food and Dining We enjoyed the "old" menus best. The tablecloths each evening seem to add to the ambiance of a lovely Diningroom. We really like Your Time Dining.


Enjoy your cruise and leave your cares back on land.
