a first cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was our first cruise and had booked a balcony stateroom. We are a family of 4 and I wanted to know the sleeping arrangements before departure so as to make changes. It was surprising that none of the agents knew the sleeping arrangements. Teh website and the cehckin process also gave teh wrong information. They kept insisting that the 4 twins were not convert able to queen or king and two twins. We only understood that it was actually 1 queen and 2 twins off the wall.

The food starts becoming ho hum after 2-3 days. The flavours are all the same.

The sevice is good and sort of makes up for the other ho hum stuff. The ship is old and shows it.

Pros: good service

Cons: ho hum food and older ship

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? No.

Ship Quality
the ship is one of the older kinds and not very big. After a few days some of the elevators started showing up and they did not get fixed at all. it is frustrating as they seemed to open or close on their own.
Food and Dining
There are a few restaurants. The day time options are repeated all thro and so it gets boring after 2 days or so. Even the pizza was ho hum. The evening dining was better but again the tastes get to be the same .
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
