Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Large Group

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

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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.


3 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The bathroom was a little larger than most ships. The balcony was great. Can't imagine taking a cruise these days without one.

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

Cons: The shows in the main theater

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!
