good time had by all

Sail Date: May 01, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

for the price the boat was adequate and service was good. Everything was typical of most cruise ships. Did not find any surprises. However, unless you like sweet sweet syrupy drinks do not buy the drink card. They were terrible! The menu was varied and the food on the lido deck was good most of the time. I would have liked Mexican food choices (there were none--not even chips) and on Greek day they had no Gyros! Much of the staff speaks very little English and has to call on someone to come and translate. But room service was always there with what we wanted (past Carnival room service was sketchy). Overall, two people over 50 and 2 people under 25 had a really good time. I said no surprises-however-i was surprised at the number of places they could find to take your picture. On the stairs, at the piano, on the beach, on a motorcycle, etc etc.

Pros: having enough room to be seated at all shows

Cons: having to wait in line to disembark at ports

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
If you have a walk-in closet at home, imagine 4 bunks and adressing table in that space and you've got it! An older ship but clean and up to date.
Service and Staff
very good
typical bingo and newlywed games
Food and Dining
Would you like 2 lobsters at dinner?
Cabin / Stateroom
