Love this ship!
Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Western
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Review SummaryWe have been on this ship several times and always love it. The cabin Stewarts and Dining room staff are great! It is not the most 'classy' or 'uppity' cruise line, it is more layed back and casual then some of the other lines, but if you go expecting that you will not be dissapointed.
Food is good, TeaTime is our favorite (seadays around 3pm- check the Capers for exact time and location) We love the wine tasting and slots tourney.
Progreso is a great port, it is very different than the 'touristy' feel of Cozumel. Progreso is a lazy fishing village with some great little seaside restaruants. It feels more like Cozumel was 15-20 years ago. Not too overdeveloped. We did the ruins the last time and loved it. Be warned, it is HOT and there is much walking, so bring water (they sell it but you will want more) Beautiful.
Cozumel is also fun, but is very different than Progreso, you can expect Cozumel to be colorful and full of activites.
There is plenty to do on the ship or you can choose to do nothing. Its your vacation and you can choose the activites that suite your tastes.
We are already planning to be back on this ship again (for the 5th time!!)
Food and Dining
Try the Chocolate Melting Cake, its the best!!!
Pizza is also good and always available.
