Carnival Ecstasy

May 2013 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Bahamas

Carnival Ecstasy May 2013

Pleasantly surprised. Great choice since my young grandchildren were with us. However, the pool area was usually packed with lots of young, drunk adults having too much fun (that small children should not be around). The ship was much cleaner than I expected - the crew was constantly cleaning something, Food was good but not great. Our extended balcony grand suite was the bomb! Much larger than we expected. We had the gate between our staterooms opened so it seemed even bigger. Loved the picture opportunities on deck everyday. The prices however are unreasonable. The walls were full of unsold pictures. They could sell so many more if they would lower the price. I would have bought almost every picture had they been priced lower. The grandchildren loved the Water Works deck. We spent most of our onboard time in that facility. Serenity pool and the regular pool was just way to crowded to enjoy. The beach at Nassau was nice but the folks selling chairs, umbrellas, water sport activities, braiding, etc. were more than annoying. They would not take NO for an answer and kept bothering us to the point that we left. Half Moon Cay was a paradise. No vendors, beautiful scenery and the water was to die for. I could have stayed there forever. Tender process was quick and easy. The food choices were good. Most meals were good but I've had much better on other cruise lines. All in all, it was a good cruise as it allowed my family to spend some fun time together.

Nassau, Bahamas - For the beach area, wear sunglasses and pretend to be asleep to avoid vendors. lol Atlantis is beautiful but pricey. Beautiful casino but slots were tight.
Carnival Ecstasy Carnival Ecstasy - Good Eats is a good choice for late night munching. Room service choices are also very good.
