Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: December 15, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Review SummaryLiked the serenity area, room service, room attendant service..
Did not like formal dining experience. Very very poor service. Even on formal night, there were individuals in dining area that wore ball caps. I did not like the too relaxed atmosphere in the dining room. That is what I enjoy most-formal, dressy attire with good service. This was not the case on this ship. The head wait staff member never spoke with us in the dining room. This was a first for us. While this is not a necessity, it all reverts back to the atmosphere in the dining room being poor. The waiter assigned to the tables nearby was almost running to see that his tables received great service. Our waiter did not appear concerned with his table's service. He was confused most of the time, often referring back to his order pad.
I will likely not book another carnival cruise due to this.
