September 2015 - 4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy
I'm going to try to sum this up as best as possible. I had a lot of great experiences on this cruise. But a couple bad instances ruined my overall feel. One of my ports of call was canceled 3 days before the main departure and there is nothing you can do about that. They refund you a couple dollars. But I wanted the option to get a full refund and cancel my trip. I didn't pay all that money to cruise the ocean. Another sad story was that the ship had 1 pool biggest enough for 50 people. Mind you; there are 2500 people on the ship. Sardines is the best word to describe going to the pool. Now, dinner was something to write home about. I anticipated getting dressed to go up and enjoy the delicious and diverse food prepared. Housekeeping, waiters and waitresses made my cruise memorable. They remember your name and pay special attention to what you like and don't like. The daily itinerary was packed full of things to do. Never a dull moment. My credit card ended up getting frozen for some reason half way through the voyage which left a extremely bad taste in my mouth. I recommend this ship to family's with small children.
