Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Older ship, but served the purpose. Room was comfortable.

Would have preferred to stay in Key West for an entire day rather than spend two full days in the Bahamas.

Pros: Visit to Key West

Cons: Visit to Freeport

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
Prefer a ship where the outside walking decks aren't so chopped up. Was difficult to find a door to exit to the outside walkway, plus it's convenient when there's a walk way on several decks, especially the main deck where you have the stair cases and glass elevators.
Food and Dining
Good. Mainly enjoyed dining on the Lido deck.
Cabin / Stateroom
Comfortable. Location was convenient.
Service and Staff
Appreciate the hardworking staff- chefs, bus boys and room stewart. Have been on other cruises where the staff interacted more and were friendlier- this crew was there mainly just to do their job. Was surprised that we really didn't see the officers roaming around to greet the travellers.
Shows were good. Enjoyed both the cowboy comedian and the fiddle/violin playing by cruise director. Miscellaneous games (i.e.hairy-chest contest) need to be changed out for something new. Would have enjoyed an opportunity for a tour of the galley.
