This was our first cruise and we were really looking forward to it. We had so many disappointments starting with leaving the dock seven and 1/2 hrs. late and arriving in Cozumel at 2:30 in the afternoon. We only had two hrs. of daylight to do any kind of excursion. Boarding and disembarking were a joke. Everything was so expensive. You have to buy a drink card that cost $5 a person, pictures were $10-$20 a pop, drinks were expensive, bingo was expensive and the pay out not that great. We played deal or no deal once! The tickets were a dollar a piece and were sold every day. The woman who played won $250. Where did all that money go? To the ship. Then in the end there was no apologies for everything that went wrong on our cruise all they wanted was to be sure that we tipped everyone. We will not be on Ecstacy again.

Pros: Bedding

Cons: Total disorganization, crew, leaving port 71/2 hrs. late, too expensive

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? No.
