Carnival Ecstasy

Sail Date: February 21, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

This was our third Carnival cruise. We were very pleased with the service and the overall experience. HOWEVER, the food in the dining room was NOT as expected. The quality and taste was not what we had experienced on our prior trips. We took new cruisers with us on this cruise and had bragged highly about how wonderful the food is. VERY DISAPPOINTING!
Also, the program gem and diamond information was very misleading. They stated multiple times that anything purchased was DUTY AND TAX FREE. Totally incorrect. While the purchases may be tax and duty free at purchase, there will be customs due upon return to the home port. Something that should be mentioned during these programs.
This less than terrific experience will not deter us from cruising again.
