Carnival Ecstasy

Sail Date: November 07, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was overall good. Nothing really stood out in the ship itself. Waterworks was fun and never crowded. This was the first ship I have been on that didnt have overly crowded mini golf. Wide variety of all ages activities. Kids (with other families) seemed happy on ship. Overall a good experience for a reasonable price.

Pros: Activities were sufficient/reasonably priced on the ship; Casino paid out fair; staff helpful and courteous

Cons: Fine dining menu could have been better; more waitstaff in fine dining; pool very small, adults only hot tub (no separate adult pool)

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Panorama grill could have offered more/ different vareity of foods. see above for cons of windstar dinning room
Cabin / Stateroom
Maintenance had to be called on numerous occasions related to non-working stateroom items.
Service and Staff
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
There's not much here when you get off the ship. This is the best port to schedule an excursion. We had a great time on the eco kayak excursion! :)
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

Don't Miss: The island itself
Nassau, Bahamas
Unfortunately, it was stormy when we were in this port. Take advantage of the cheap shopping at Nassau. This is the best area for buying souvenirs. Make sure to haggle/bargain with the locals!
