August 2016 - 5 Night Bahamas (Charleston Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy
Just ok - not great - far from excellent
This was my fifth Carnival cruise. In this cruise food was just ok. The room was cleaned once every day, as opposed to all the time in other cruises. Towels were old and stained. The shows were very simple, lack of creativity. Looks like Carnival is having some budget issues and the overall quality has been impacted. Despite the service quality was lower than other cruises the gratuities were the same. The ship was old and looked old, poor maintenance. The port experience was terrible, unorganized, we wasted a lot of time in the parking lot, stopping in three different control points that don't control anything. I wouldn't use that port again and I'm seriously considering switching to another cruise line.
