Food and Dining

The food was poor. I think I lost weight while on this ship.

Kids were complaining about wanting to go home. That should say something... Everyone was relieved when the ship docked back in Galveston.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Room service took an hour plus to receive.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Old ship. The ship was used to house Hurricane Katrina victims. It is a few weeks away from being retired. It is terrible!

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Everyone complained about their rooms. The rooms were SO small that you could barely move. People that were in large balcony rooms said their rooms were as small as rooms at the bottom of the ship.

Tons to do. I recommend ziplining!

It was good to get off of the ship. The town was marginal, but the food from the street vendors and local restaurants beat the heck out of ship food.

Pros: N/A

Cons: I am normally extremely positive, but this cruise was terrible. The food was marginal, the service was horrible, and the ship is extremely old and outdated. Carnival should be ashamed!

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? No.
