5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 11, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

First time sailers, was a good experience to start out. Did not feel seasick b/c the ship was large enough. Needs more big swimming pools and more kids pool on the Ecstasy. There was fighting when we were there and never had a chance to swim in pools. Very overcrowded. Breakfast good in dining room but evening dinners not so great. Only one lobster night was good. Dessert was excellent choice. Entertainment was good. So disappointed of Mongolian grill stir frying. Needs more variety of food for kids, like macaroni and cheese, fish sticks, chicken nuggets,etc or even peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Good experience overall.
