You can tell it's an older boat. However, it's been recently updated to be consistent with others in the fleet.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good variety in the dining room. Service was really good.


1 out of 5
Karaoke was best entertainment, due to the host. Other musical options were awful. Non-energetic, dated song selection, some really bad performances. China lounge only had 2-3 people there at a time. Piano bar singer was really bad.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Dinner staff was excellent, accomodating. Drink staff was readily available. On another cruise I had problems with staff not leaving me alone - not the case here. Very respectful.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Some parts were very dated. Small - or at least it felt small because there were a lot of people on it.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
A little cramped, but that was expected. Didn't clean bathroom as well as they should.

Pros: Kids activities, food variety

Cons: Crowded, loud, AWFUL live music selection

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? No.
