4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 12, 2007
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Family (young children)

We cruised with our 5 and 3 year old children. We enjoyed being able to drop them off in the secure and wonderfully managed Camp Carnival while we enjoyed the other activities on the boat. We especially appreciated the service from all the crew and the dining was excellent.

The programs were fun and well planned but I think probably average for the cruising industry.

Children's Programs

Loved Camp Carnival! Very safe and organized. Lots of activities for the kids- not just babysitting.

Service and Staff

The crew was always smiling and very helpful with questions.

Ship Quality

The boat was very nice for a fun ship. Although the layout was a little confusing and took a while to figure out.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We stayed in the best room category on the ship so we loved our room and our balcony and our bathtub and our granite counters and our walk-in closet.

Cozumel is what you would expect from a Mexican port destination. Pretty where the tourists go and less so in other parts. The beaches were nice and clean.

Pros: Dining, Kids Program, Service

Cons: Small pools
