2nd Carnival Cruise

Sail Date: February 07, 2009

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship is old and shows it. Many rusty areas. A fire broke out on deck above us on the morning just before our arrival back in Galveston, TX. We would not have known about it, had it not been for the commotion outside of our stateroom. There is no in-room public address system or alarm to alert you to an emergency.

Pros: Ship board staff and town of Progresso, Mex

Cons: Public address system on Ecstasy

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Really good bargains in town square, but watch out for some clothing items, Tags say made in India, but vendors insist they really are made in Mexico.. Beach front bars under the tatch roofs are fun.
Cozumel, Mexico
Overrated Shopping, It seems like there is a Diamonds International Jewelry store on every corner.
