Carnival Ecstasy

June 2014 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western

OK

Our trip on Carnival Ecstasy was a good,quick, last minute get-away to start off summer.  The ship is really nothing special.  Very small pool (our pool in our Florida backyard is about as big).  Our son did enjoy the mini golf and the fitness center/spa is quiet nice.  Dining in dining rooms is well done-well staffed, quite good food, good selections of offerings; buffets not so much- long lines for mediocre buffet food.

 

Oceanview cabin is fine especially if you don't plan to spend much time in cabin.  Nothing fancy- although nice fluffy bedding & comfortable beds made for good sleep.

 

Dissappointment was the Circle C kids club and activities for kids.  We chose Carnival for its reputation for being more fun for kids.  The kids club was basically a room with a Wii.  Not enough there or activities organised and advertised to attract enough other kids to make it fun and worthwhile to return. 

 

Entertainment- At least there were some family-friendly activities that we could do together.  We enjoyed the Hasbro Game Night and both family friendly and adult comedy shows, but otherwise not enough on the ship to get me to cruise on that ship again (even for a short get-away).

dtmiami305's Tips

Key West, Florida - Good- we enjoyed bike tour. But 5 hours in Key West is really not enough time to do much more than either a quick excursion like bike tour or just walk around- can't do both. Ridiculously long line/wait for trolley to get back to ship
Carnival Ecstasy Carnival Ecstasy - Choose the anytime dining. Offers nice, enjoyable dining experience at quite flexible hours. It's a much more pleasant experience than buffet. With lines for buffet- the sit-down dining really doesn't take that much more time.
