Carnival Ecstasy
5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 09, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship is in bad shape. It needs a new survey. Overall reconditioning is important at this point. Some of the life boats have damage and would not hold up to use. One had extreme damage to the shaft. The hull needs to be checked for electrostatic damage. Interior needs to be redone. Many of the carpets were dirty and had bad smells.

Food and Dining

Convenience of my time dinning. We enjoyed this option. The food was average, but the service was not as professional as other cruise ships.

The stewart was great. Other staff members seem to need more training experience.

The cabins need up dating. Changing out the carpet would help. In some cases the carpets were dirty with bad smells.

Ship left late and we did not have much time in port.

Swim with the dolpin is great. Dolphin trainer is poor. Other options are good.
Don't Miss: Swim with dolpins

Pros: The opportunity to take a vacation

Cons: Service and shape of the ship
