4 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 23, 2009
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

Ecstasy is showing her age in some areas, but I understand she is getting a major facelift this fall. Still, the ship was clean and seems well cared for. The crew was friendly and the service was good. The food was fine in the dining room, not to die for, but good enough. The dining room service was excellent. Overall, a good value for the money.

The shows were entertaining, but not the quality I have seen on other cruises. There didn't seem to be the variety of activities on the days at sea offered on some other cruises.

I can't say enough good things about the crew. Everyone was friendly and helpful.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had an outside cabin with a window. The size was adequate and our cabin steward did a fine job keeping it neat and tidy.

We hired a taxi for a trip to the Mayan Ruins and a circle tour of the Island. The ruins were quite interesting and well worth the trip. We saw at least 30 Iguanas as we walked around the site. This was my fourth trip to Cozumel, so we skipped the shopping downtown and bought the obligatory t-shirts etc. at the shops by the pier.

Pros: Excellent service from all the crew

Cons: How many times can they take our picture?

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
