Sail Date: August 18, 2012
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 5 years ago

Ship is an older cruise ship with limited balcony rooms but has been updated. There are limited areas of daylight on the public decks and none on the majority of the accommodation decks. The style is older las vegas or early atlantic city. It could stand another renovation to bring in more daylight and add balconies. The mini golf area was a pleasant surprise compared to my last carnival cruise.
