Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was clean and the service was fantastic. There was always something to do so if anyone was bored it was because they wanted to be. The stateroom was clean and comfortable. The entertainment was great as was the food. My wife and I were both highly satisfied with the cruise, the ship and the staff.

Pros: The staff was very attentive and quickly addressed any request.

Cons: The room was a little cooler than we like and there was no way to make it a little warmer.

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom was good, it was clean and comfortable. The only complaint we had was the room was a little colder than we like and there was no way to make it any warmer, it was easy to make it colder but not warmer.
Service and Staff
All the staff are friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. The housekeeping staff was outstanding. They cleaned the room twice a day. Several times we came back to the stateroom and showered and napped. When we returned from dinner the room was cleaned and the towels replaced.

The wait staff in the dining room was excellent. Our waiter took time each evening to show my wife Napkin Origami.

I don't think the staff even knows the word NO, any reasonable request was quickly handled with a smile.

The staff made the cruise very enjoyable.
There were two full production shows featuring the Ecstasy singers and dancers that were fantastic. The Cruise Director Steve was awesome! Not only did he arrange everything he also performed several times and he is quite talented.
Ship Quality
All the public areas were spotless, there was always someone cleaning something, If something was dropped or spilled someone was there immediately to clean the area. When a cup or glass was left behind it was quickly picked up. The main lobby was brightly lit with plenty of neon and filled with music. The only thing we had an issue with was the elevators were a bit slow and it seed like at least one was always down for repairs.
Food and Dining
The food was great. The buffets were good and there was a variety to choose from. The hours the buffets were open were more than enough. The food in the main dining room was fantastic. The portions were good but if you wanted something more just ask and it was delivered quickly.
