5 Night Key West & Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 14, 2012
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Good. Mainly enjoyed dining on the Lido deck.


3 out of 5
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.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
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.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Comfortable. Location was convenient.

Pros: Visit to Key West

Cons: Visit to Freeport
