5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 25, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
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.

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

3 out of 5
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.

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.

Pros: Length of trip, pleasant employees

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

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
