October 2015 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western
The cruise ship is certainly dated and the food was mediocre at best. The cruise employees are constantly trying to sell you one thing or another...jewelry, photos, watches, bingo cards, drinks, $40 concert tickets, art, etc. The ship wasn't able to pull into port in Key West due to bad weather, so we spent an extra full day stuck on the boat. They didn't have many activities/entertainment to tide people over, so they end up just doing repeat comedy shows and musical acts. We ended up staying in Mexico longer to make up for not making it to Key West. Being able to leave the ship and sight see around Mexico was probably the best part of the entire cruise trip.
