Great Family Vacation

Sail Date: April 02, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

This was our first cruise and we brought our 4 children ranging in ages from 9 to 18. We all had a great time! None of us can think of any thing that would have made it any better.

Pros: We loved everything!

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was beautiful, maybe the deco was a little outdated, but it was still great.
Food and Dining
The food was awesome. The kids were able to try foods they had never tried before and if they didn't like it , they just got something different.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room was nice. It was wonderful how everytime we left the room, when we came back, it was tidied up again.
Service and Staff
The staff was superb. It brought tears to our eyes saying good-bye to our dining room waiter and room steward. After spending a week with these people, you get attached to them.
The cruise director was great and our whole family enjoyed the entertainment.
Children's Programs
Our children had opportunities to participate in age-appropriate activities, however, they opted to spend time together as a family and we enjoyed many family activities.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
We visited the Mayan Ruins at Progreso and really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in that type of thing.
Cozumel, Mexico
While in Cozamul, we did the snuba. It was fun, however our tour ran very late and we did not have time to do anything else there which was quite disappointing.
