November 2015 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy
The good part was the service was excellent; the food was excellent, the ship was very stable...very little rocking. The comedy club was really funny.
The bad part is that they have come down to LOW BUDGET cruising. It's an old ship. We had only ONE electrical plug in the whole room...not even one in the bathroom! No captain's welcome aboard party...they just stood around shaking hands in the hallway in front of a store called Rolls Royce for picture taking. The show was a joke. 8 people dancing around to music for both of these so-called wonderful shows. Used to have famous people on board, magicians, talent shows, midnight buffets;...none of that. Very boring. Used to be able to get as many lobsters or steaks in the dining room but now you have to actually PAY extra $20 for ONE! Blaring ethnic music ..catering.mostly to Spanish and black YOUNG people on board....just not our "cup of tea".
