A great experience

Sail Date: May 15, 2006

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The Ecstasy has been recently refurbished and it's like a new ship. Our stateroom was like new. The staff taking care of our room was great. For our five night cruise we found plenty of variety in entertainment, food, and actvities on and off the ship.

Pros: The Variety

Cons: It had to end

Progreso (Merida), Mexico
We did the Chichen Itzan excursion. That took most of our alloted shore time in Progresso. Really enjoyed the trip to this ancient Mayan city. When we returned to the Port after the excursion we had about 20 minutes to look through the shops at the end of the pier.
Cozumel, Mexico
We did the bike and snorkel excursion. I was quite disappointed in the snorkeling. We entered our snorkel trip from the beach and just didn't get to see much in the water. From things I'd heard and read of Cozumel I expected to see more on the snorkel trip. From comments of others on the boat, they saw much more variety on the other types of snorkeling excursions offered.
