5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 03, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Ship was clean and overall pretty good. Wasn't impressed with what was offered on the top decks (tiny pool, okay water slides, no basketball goal). There is a serenity deck (adults only) that normally had good space in the hot tubs.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Wait staff was great. Danced/sang each night after the meal. Best part of the experience.

Lots of options but not great quality. Not many top deck entertainment options.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small but adequate. Bathrooms had a lingering smell of urine.
3 out of 5
Booked privately over the internet to avoid overpaying for an excursion. Cheap private beach/open bar/snorkeling readily available on the island.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling.
3 out of 5
Not much to do besides shop or overpay for an excursion. Most people shopped the shops right by the terminal or took the free shuttle in to a touristy marketplace.
Don't Miss: Worth taking the free shuttle down the pier and walking the shops along the beach.

Pros: Great wait staff, good food

Cons: Small pool, not a lot of top deck activities

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
