The Carnival cruise ship Ecstasy was used to house first responders in New Orleans immediately after Hurricane Katrina. I am a police officer in New Orleans. I resided on this ship for five months (from October 2005 until February 2006). My house was damaged by the flooding from the hurricane. The staff was very nice, understanding of our situation, and helpful.

The food was great. The rooms were well maintained. We really appreciated their efforts to accomodate us.

These were basic accomodations that we needed for survival. There were no casinos, no bars, no alcohol allowed, no shopping.

Thanks again to a great staff for taking care of us in a time of real need.

PS - I understand that after the ship departed New Orleans at the end of February that it was completely renovated.
