My wife and I recently went on our honeymoon on the Ecstasy and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The ship was a joy to be on and all our wants and needs were met with such wonderful service. Our room was immaculate, and the bed was very comfortable. Our stateroom stewardess, Bongkoth, always greeted us with a smile and never failed to ask if we needed anything. For the turndown service at night she would even make a neat little animal out of the towels! It was these little details that made the cruise so enjoyable, and nowhere was this more true than in the dining room. Our waitstaff, Jose and Bianca, were absolutely delightful and made for a great atmosphere even before we ate. The food was the crown jewel though, and we were very pleased at Carnival's recent addition of gourmet dishes by acclaimed chef Georges Blanc. I hesitate to put 6 stars on almost everything, but I just couldn't find fault with anything that we experienced on the ship. We are definitely going to go on another cruise after this.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: We had heard from others that the Uxmal Mayan ruins were very fascinating, though it involved some walking and climbing up stairs.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling or some kind of underwater activity is a must because of the beautiful waters at Cozumel.
Pros: The food, service, activities, and value.
Cons: Progreso didn't offer the same amazing experience as Cozumel.
