May 2014 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Western
Food - for the most part, excellent. The fruit was the most delicious I had ever had in my entire life.
Entertainment - The band Kansas was great. The comedian on the boat did a show every night, he was hilarious, and played to standing room only. So many other things going on all the time, and things to do for all age groups.
Service - Top notch!!! Our dinner server (Carlos) was on his game. All the staff know you by name, by the second day of sail. How they do this, I have no idea, but it makes you feel great. Everyone one board was friendly and genuinely went out of their way to ensure you had a good time and everything you needed.
Comparison - The only other cruise I have taken is the Norweigan Dawn to Bermuda, out of NYC. This was overall a better experience than Norweigan. I am already booked on my next Carnival cruise for August/2014 to the Bahamas out of Florida
