An OK cruise.

Sail Date: May 09, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Pros: The opportunity to take a vacation

Cons: Service and shape of the ship

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? No.

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
The cabins need up dating. Changing out the carpet would help. In some cases the carpets were dirty with bad smells.
Service and Staff
The stewart was great. Other staff members seem to need more training experience.
Children's Programs
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.
You need variety on this ship.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Ship left late and we did not have much time in port.
Cozumel, Mexico
Swim with the dolpin is great. Dolphin trainer is poor. Other options are good.
Don't Miss: Swim with dolpins
