First time cruisers and we had lots of fun. Love not having to cook, clean or do laundry.

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Lots of stairs. Very clean, always being cleaned somehow.
Cabin / Stateroom
cabin size of 185 sq. ft. make for a bit cowded with 4 people(2 adults, 2 kids - age 11,14).
Children's Programs
Age 14 child, thought it was kind of dumbed down. Age 11 child, thought it was a big babysitting service. Wish there was kids activities geared more for 9-11. Some of the activities were kind of elementary for 9-11 year olds.
Service and Staff
Waiter in the Wind Star Dining area - Vijay and Marcos, top of the line, very professional, but good at joking around with us. Sorry we didn't have them the first two night.
So many activities to do, hard to do them all. Some of the game shows, not all family friendly. Music on Lido deck during the day TOO loud, couldn't hear my IPOD over the music being played.
Food and Dining
Never wanted for a thing. If you didn't like something, order something else. Very accomodating. Had trouble one night with getting steak to MED. kept coming out RARE.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
waste of time walking in town. Probably should have taken a tour of some kind. Next time I'd go to the Mayan ruins.
Cozumel, Mexico
Was taken to San Juan island resort. Very nice and peaceful.
