January 2016 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western
This cruise had a party atmosphere. I complained more than once about the loud noise coming from the Atrium area at 11:30 P.M. NO satisfactory response came from the Guest Services desk. I have been on other cruise lines before, and would NOT recommend this one due to the noise problems, etc. Guests in the hallway were also in a "party" atmosphere - ok during the day, but not in the wee hours of the morning.
The rest of the cruise was nice - I enjoyed the dining area - food, although the dining room was only open at night. It was NOT open for lunch - customers had only the option of the cafeteria which opened at 12:00 noon.
The shows were top-rate. We all enjoyed them.
I used the pool and the hot tub in the adult only area. I was happy that they had this area - no kids with ice cream cones running around.
This is NOT a cruise for folks like me who are NOT party people.
