4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 21, 2006
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 11 years ago

This was an awesome vacation for our entire family. My husband and I took our 4 children (ranging in age from 18 to 22 years old) on a Christmas Cruise departing Galveston, TX . Each and everyone of us had a wonderful experience. The cruise ship staff is the best and the service surpassed the 5 star resorts I've stayed in on prior vacations. The value for the money was exceptional. I would recommend this cruise to anyone, with or without children -- for both the young and the young at heart. We will be taking other curises in the future!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The service in the main dining room was better than any five star restaurant -- but the food was not great! We ate dinner in the main dining room becasue the wait staff was so terrific!


5 out of 5
There is something to do for everyone -- and nothing to do if you just wish to relax!

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our staff took exceptional care of us . . . especially when the youngest daughter had motion sickness on our first night out to sea!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is well maintained and so clean, but be prepared to walk a lot! It is a very large ship -- take good walking shoes and be aware, the decks are very slippery when wet!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We had inside staterooms, they were small but adequate. No more room was required for the small amount of time we were actually in our rooms. This was the best accomodations for the price -- masterful space planning, you will be surprised at how large these small rooms feel.
5 out of 5
Our family chose to go scuba diving for beginners! The instructors were very professional and our experience has each of us planning to get certified for our next vacation. We plan to do more diving on more cruise adventures
Don't Miss: Don't miss Cozumel, even if you don't take an excursion at least go eat at Casa Denis --

Pros: the service

Cons: the food in the main dining room

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
