Sail Date: November 27, 2010
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group

This was our first cruise, so don't have much to compare against. Overall this was a memorable experience, will definitely be cruising again in the near future. Food was the best part of the experience, especially the desserts. Cozumel was a great port of call, however, I was disappointed with Progreso, not much to do unless you take a 90 minutes bus ride to Mayan ruine, which we didn't.

Best dining experience. Carnival deserves highest rating in dining IMHO. Dining hall staff were friendly, they accommodated our special requests.

Overall good entertainment package. The performers probably won't make it to Vegas or similar shows...

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Carnival Esctasy is kind of an older ship, built in early 90s. Still it is modern and the public areas are mostly clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had an ocean view room. It was cramped for 4 adults. The ship doesn't have many balcony rooms unlike the modern ships.
