5 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 26, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Very nice decor. Easy to get around on. Cabins had everything we needed and they were always extra clean. All of the crew members were very pleasant and accommodating. We booked this cruise just to get away from the rat race and it's exactly what we wanted.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We only ate in the dining room one night, but it was very, very good. Waitress was very attentive and polite and brought our meals to the table hot and quickly.

Would like to have more evening performances. The singers need to sing a little softer because they were so loud, we couldn't understand the words to the songs. The music or band was too loud also.

We didn't find the air conditioner adjustment until the last evening of our cruise.

I realize the people need to sell their wares, but I just felt hustled the whole stay. The tours were too expensive.

Too hot for us to enjoy the day and the town was too far away from the cruise boat.

Pros: Smooth waters, great food, crew were very attentive

Cons: Could have had more shows in the evening

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
