Carnival Ecstasy
5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 31, 2008
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 10 years ago
The ship was older, however it was in good shape. The state rooms were well kept, clean and more than large enough. However, for such a large ship it was WAY too crowded. It seems like there were lines everywhere, halls, public areas always crowded and the noise was a bit too much!! The picture taking by the Carnival staff got to be a little too much and saying no didn't seem to work. We took the cruise with my parents, and our two children so over all it was a decent trip, it wasn't bad but not great either.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was average, not the best but not the worst either. I think the dining room food should have been a little better with a little more selection.

Shows were fantastic, excellent talent!

We loved it, we took two shore trips (stingray adventure and the horseback riding) and had a great time, even though the weather was a little over cast and drizzle.
