5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)

Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group

This was our first cruise with Carnival. We sailed twice before with Royal Carribean. The Carnival/Ecstasy cruise left little to be desired. Out of 5 days we had 2 sea days in which we were left trying to find something to keep us entertained. The lack of shows and events left us disappointed. At one point my wife asked guest services what would be a good beach to visit and they said they didn't know. They didn't even make an attempt to find out. Now the food and food service was excellent. So were the room stewards.

I give this an average rating due to the ships interior being very outdated. It was clean.

The beach was cluttered with litter.
Don't Miss: Your guess is as good as mine. Money needs to be invested.
