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.

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!!

This is a very rustic area. However, we did a shore excursion of seeing the Mayan Ruins. It was unbelievable.

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~!

Pros: Entertainment & excursions= relaxation!

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

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
