First Cruise on Carnival Esctasy!

Sail Date: August 31, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The trip was wonderful! The only complaint is the price of drinks. I think they could probably sell more if they were a little less expensive. We ended up only having 4 drinks because of the prices! The staff was very friendly and helpful!

Pros: The service was great! Very helpful!

Cons: Alcohol prices were very expensive! One drink came out to over $18!!

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Fairly easy to find everything on boat. Everything kept clean and tidy.
Food and Dining
Loved that food was available from 6 am to 4am! You can basically eat whenever you want and as much as you want!! The food isn't the best I've ever had, tastes like basic buffet food.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice room. About everytime we left room, it was cleaned when we came back.
Service and Staff
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room service was very helpful with whatever we needed!
Activities going on all day! Always something to do!
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Visit the flea market to get good deals on necklaces, etc. But make sure to bargain and never pay the price they are asking for. If they ask for $20, offer $5. The excursion to the mayan ruins are awesome! Book with auto progreso in port, they are alot cheaper than the ship.
Don't Miss: Flea Market, but make sure to bargain with them.
Cozumel, Mexico
Shopping is more expensive here than in Progreso. We went on the snorkeling and beach party excursion for $59! It was awesome, definitely worth every cent! Free margaritas and beer with it as well!!
Don't Miss: Do a shore excursion here, not much else unless you only want to shop and eat.
