Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

All staff members were friendly and attentive.
Even though we had a couple of inconveniences, we did have a good cruise overall.

Pros: The food was awesome

Cons: drain smell

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
The staff tidied our room every time we left! Every time we left the room they wished us a fun time and even remembered our names...with so many people on board that was amazing. Our stateroom's bathroom had a terrible smell coming from the drains. We mentioned it to our stateroom staff and they did try to rid the bathroom of the stench. However, the chemicals that were poured down the drains did not help. We covered the drains with towels.
The wi-fi did not work in our stateroom, not once. The last two inconveniences are the only reasons for the average rating...otherwise, the best.
Ship Quality
Our room was completely at the wrong end of the ship. Everything was continually being cleaned. Even though the smell of the drains in our stateroom bathroom was awful, the ship was clean and tidy overall.
Food and Dining
Food was good, but not exceptional. The spa options were good especially the mahi mahi. The wait staff in the main dining room did not do the "entertainment" 3/5 nights! Adding the sing/dance each night would create an even more fun atmosphere for the passengers and allow them to feel a connection to the staff.
Service and Staff
Could have more options during the day and earlier in the evenings.
