The Cruise from Hell

Sail Date: November 22, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Never again! Carnival should be ashamed!

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 The food was marginal, the service was horrible, and the ship is extremely old and outdated.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.

Food and Dining
The food was poor. I think I lost weight while on this ship.
Service and Staff
Room service took an hour plus to receive.
Ship Quality
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
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.
Kids were complaining about wanting to go home. That should say something... Everyone was relieved when the ship docked back in Galveston.
Cozumel, Mexico
Tons to do. I recommend ziplining!
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
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.
