5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 31, 2009
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

We sailed on the Ecstasy out of Galveston since we live in Texas and could just drive to the port. This was our first cruise and we went with an open mind. The ship was really beautiful, the meals were elegant, the food was great. We had a wonderful experience. One unexpected result was the making of new friendships with our dinner companions.

The shopping was sketchy, the town was dirty and a bit scary. We quickly went back to the ship.
Don't Miss: Probably the tours

Pros: The ship, activities, dinner, employees, towel animals

Cons: prressure to drink
