Carnival Ecstasy

December 2015 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western

An enjoyable vacation if you set your expectations properly.

Pluses: The ship, the staterooms, the staff, good value for the price

Minus: The food, staged shows, constantly being up-sold drinks, photos, and shore excursions.


I had a fine time on this vacation - with the goal of quality time with my 18 and 22 year-old daughters.  We had a nice room on the boat (for not a lot of money), the out door area were a great way to spend the day just relaxing and the destinations were fine.  This is what I wanted and this is what I got.  


However if you want fine dining, luxury, and top of the line entertainment, look else where.  In the main dining hall there was a decent variety of choices but the portions were small and average.  My shrimp cocktail had 6 small shrimp (just above salad size) and the entrees were no larger than the appetizers plates.  The pasta I had had a grainy taste to it and the sauce was bland.  Although the drinks were fairly priced, they were watered down. I will give props to the chicken fingers at the casual dining area.  Some of the best I had.


The staff was attentive, service was good, and everything was clean and neat.


As I said the 4 stars for a basic family cruise that allows for time spent together on the ocean.
