February 2015 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western
This was a fantastic cruise. The room steward greeted us immediately upon our arrival in our cabin, and he always greeted us by name after that. The food was wonderful, and the waiters couldn't have been better. We enjoyed the excursion in Cozumel which included a visit to a tequileria and chocolate "factory"=salesroom plus a drive around the island and interesting commentary. The island is a beautiful place, and with such a short time in Cozumel I would not want to go to the mainland to visit the Mayan ruins and/or Cancun. The embarking and disembarking process was fairly smooth. I realize it's never easy to get 2000+ people checked in as soon as they want to. The condition of the ship was surprisingly nice considering its age. The carpets were in excellent shape, and the stateroom was very well appointed. The closets were quite large, and there was lots of storage space. All in all, we were very pleased.
