AWESOME first cruise!!!!!!

Sail Date: February 28, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Carnival Ecstacy was so AWESOME! This was our first cruise and met all our expectations. The entertainment options aboard were non-stop and wide variety for many ages/interests. The shore excursion at Passion Island was beyond belief!!! In the beginning (the ride to the location) we got nervous and wasn't sure if it was all it was advertised to be. In the end it was beyond belief. Ranks as one of the best days in my life! The only downside of the ship was smoking & non-smoking rooms were grouped together. At times on the balcony, our neighbor would smoke which took away from our enjoyment.

Pros: Entertainment & excursions= relaxation!

Cons: smoking and non-smoking rooms adjacent to one another.

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Ship Quality
This ship was nice & we enjoyed greatly. However in some places you can tell the ship was a little aged. But I would go back to it in a heartbeat!!
Children's Programs
We did not bring our children with us on this trip, however there were many activities that were attractive for the various age groups we have
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
This is a very rustic area. However, we did a shore excursion of seeing the Mayan Ruins. It was unbelievable.
Cozumel, Mexico
Cozumel was much more developed city/port compared to Progreso. We did a shore excursion through Orbitz to Passion Island Beach. It was HEAVEN!!!!
Don't Miss: Passion Island Beach~!
