Take the trip of a lifetime aboard the Carnival Ecstasy, a ship that sparkles, glimmers, and glows with excitement. After a day of sightseeing, chill out at the adults' only retreat, Serenity which boasts 2 whirlpools or try a soothing treatment at Spa Carnival. When evening rolls around, the Starlight Lounge comes alive with entertainment. Try your luck in the Crystal Palace Casino, or enjoy Vegas-style shows in the Blue Sapphire Lounge. For late-night fun, head to the flashy Stripes or Chinatown nightclubs. Then, take an early morning nap by the pool and get ready to do it all again.

Terrible Ship Low Quality Bad Service Dont Waste Your Money by pens6868

This cruise is not worth the money. Carnival is cheap and this is their low end. Travel to port Canaveral and take a cheap Royal Caribbean cruise. You will be so much happier that you did. Dont let the convenience of Charleston make the decision like it did for me. Another 4 hours of driving and the week would have been much better.

Bottom of the barrel in comparison to other cruise lines, not that bad, just not that good by Melinda74

We had never cruised Carnival before so we were disappointed with the quality of the overall cruise. If you have never sailed before and have no expectations, then I'm sure it is a fantastic experience. If you are expecting quality entertainment, quality food, and to be treated as a valued customer, you will be disappointed.

We had a blast, and Leon the cruise director was great. I can't wait to do it again. The food, and all the people who work on this ship were great, and extremely friendly. I would recommend this cruise to everyone I know.

Train your personnel to think out of the box!.....I am aware that the limit for soda cans is 12, but my daughter's box was too heavy, so I had to take out four cans temporarily and forgot about it. There was no reason why all 16 had to be destroyed instead of just confiscating four and leaving the remaining 12!!!

Have stricter rules for children that misbehave. Try to have someone that is more strict in Circle C with the 12-14 year olds. Make sure you know that you can go to Customer Service and let them know you don't want to be charged gratuities. You can give them to the staff that cleaned your room instead. Make sure you get what you paid for in case of the water slide.

We didn't have trouble with motion sickness surprisingly but we choose to stay at the bottom of the ship. Now that we know it isn't a issue we will try for a suite next time. Oh, when you get a king size bed; realized that means 2 twins pushed together so you have a line down the bed.

I loved eating breakfast on the Lido deck. They had short lines and I loved the omelets they made for us

Don't believe the bad reviews. There are some people that can't say anything good about anything. Make your own experience. I am so glad I gave Carnival a chance !!! I will be doing this again and again !!!
