This is a great cruise for the money! We drove down to Port Canaveral from Atlanta and we were enjoying the lunch buffet by noon. This cruise took us to Nassau, Freeport and Key West. Freeport is a real "snoozer" with an ugly port, so I would recommend that Carnival remove this port from the itinerary. Key West was by far the best as well as the day at sea. The staff is very attentive to the guests and the ship is older yet spotless. Shows were entertaining and we met lots of really nice people. Our family of 4 really enjoyed the experience despite the not so super weather.

Food and Dining

Plenty of food and the quality was good but not super.

There was something to do each evening which was very nice. Shows, comedy, games, etc.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was very attentive and they were always cleaning every nook and cranny of the ship.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Adequate size and getting on and off the ship was a breeze with lots of staff on hand to assist.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
More than adequate for two people and the room was very clean and functional. Plenty of storage in the closets and drawers. Suitcase fit under the bed.

Pros: Attentive staff, clean ship, fun shows, easy on and off process

Cons: Bahamas ports -- less than interesting -- particularly Freeport

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
