Verified Review
4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 12, 2009
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago

Activities were good and varaible, such as dancing, shows, casino tournaments, etc. But, the food at the main dining was about 2stars, not 4-5 stars as before. Perhaps, I had not attended the short cruises in a while. The buffet, available instead of the main dining, was lacking. Their fuit juice is concentrate and very tart. Maybe, all other ships with a short itinerary have the same shortcomings, but the Carnival Ecstacy is the only one I can review.
