Ship: Carnival Ecstasy

i sailed with my 6 yo daughter and scheduled an early seating for 6:15pm months in advance and when i checked in they changed me to the late seating at 8:30pm which totally ruined our dinner plans. also the food was sooooooooooooooooooo bland with no taste a times i felt trapped because i could not leave and go get something to eat... you spend time getting all dressed up and the food was soooo bad in the formal dining room. i say fire the chefs... otherwise i was mislead when i purchased my tour excursion to excaret island told by staff that lunch would be provided and that was not the case.. also most of the staff on board the ship did not speak much english, so communication was difficult at times,, the entertainment and christmas show was fabulous..
