Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review
It's been said that Carnival is the "Ford" or "Chevrolet" of cruise lines. Actually, it's the Yugo. Getting on and off Ecstasy is a cattle call, and guess who gets all the bull? The interiors are designed like a cheap Vegas nightclub (lots of mirrors and neon), the food is like your average TGI Fridays, and service is poor at best. Carnival is not known for its ship maintenance, and Ecstasy is proof of that. This ship looks much worse than its age. Beware! Travel agents love Carnival because of the spiffs they receive from the line, so they will naturally push these cruises. You'll do much better for a short cruise (3 to 4 days) aboard either NCL's Norweigan Majesty or RCCL's Soverign of the Seas.
