Great Time

Sail Date: February 09, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was in very good shape, considering it's been around for a long time. Renovations have made it very appealing.

Pros: Having the whole family together, and having cabins near each other

Cons: The shows in the main theater

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Not too impressed with any of the "Broadway" type shows. Probably the worst of any ship I've been on. However, Frank the piano man, was a hoot. Very funny and talented.
Food and Dining
Our head waiter, Naidu, was the best. He was just perfect for our family of eight, including two children ages 3 and 6. He's been with Carnival for 31 years, and he is the ultimate pro. We looked forward to seeing him each day at dinner. The food was a pleasant surprise. Quite good.
Ship Quality
The size of this ship really appealed to me. We could find places without much of a hassle and it didn't have the crowds of the mega-ships. The ship was very clean and the service was very good throughout.
Service and Staff
No problems at all with the staff. As I mentioned in the Dining/Food category, our head waiter Naidu helped make this a special family cruise.
Cabin / Stateroom
The bathroom was a little larger than most ships. The balcony was great. Can't imagine taking a cruise these days without one.
