2nd cruise

Sail Date: November 17, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The boarding went quick and easy. The ship swayed much too much and was unbearable to enjoy the relaxation. The service and people were fantastic. The food was less than great, but did have a variety of items to choose from. The rooms and bathroom were large enough to move about. Cleaning of ship was constant and reassuring. Too may stairways and different ways to get around. Got lost several times. Do recommend the kids camp.

Pros: nice size rooms, and bathroom. kids camp, good shows

Cons: too much motion, food less than great

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? No.

Ship Quality
Ship size too small could have contributed to too much motion. Layout was confusing and difficult to get around. Cleanliness very good. Decor retro, but in good condition.
Food and Dining
Was very pleased with the service. Our waiter and assistant kept our children entertained well enough to enjoy the dining experience.
Cabin / Stateroom
Despite being on the bottom of the ship, we had the comfort of a fine hotel.
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
This was my childrens first cruise. They were very entertained. Could not wait until the camp began the next day to have fun. My children don't like daycare, but they loved the camp. The staff was very fun, and educational.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
We visited Chichen Itza and the tour was magnificent, very informative and my children loved it. The only downfall was the 2.5hr bus drive. We did also enjoy a nice lunch on our ride back to the port.
Don't Miss: Chichen Itza
Cozumel, Mexico
Our time in Cozumel was disappointing due to the storm. But, the shopping experience was great. We were well prepared by James "Kiwi".
Don't Miss: could not say
