Good Cruise

Sail Date: June 25, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was nice, not the largest. Thought camp carnival for the 7 yr olds should be a larger space. The food was not as good as cruises from FL nor was the entertainment. I seemed to spend a lot of money on board the ship making this trip more expensive than if we just flew to a location and stayed there.

I was a bit disappointed however enjoyed the trip.

Pros: Length of trip, pleasant employees

Cons: Room had pull down bed that everyone kept hitting their head on

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Food and Dining
See above
Cabin / Stateroom
small, not comfortable as we kept hitting out heads on the bed, toilet seat was loose-we had it fixed but loosened up again.
Ship Quality
see above
Good options, some costly like bingo. You can't even have every member of your family play bingo without paying $20/card...too much $5 would have been good for one card!
Children's Programs
Activities were ok however the room was very small, not well lit... Times should be staggered from adult activities so parents have time to drop children off and then get to their activity on time...i.e. drop child off at 5:45, go to dinner at 6:00, etc.
Service and Staff
Great staff
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Had fun even in rain!
Cozumel, Mexico
Great dolphin swim!! Loved it however could have been explained a little better - talking about the day's activities, where to go, what to do, etc.
