Carnival Ecstacy

Sail Date: January 01, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

I couldn't believe how clean the ship was. They would shampoo the carpets at night. The thing I love about cruising are the fine friendly people you meet. The people that work for Carnival so nice and helpful. This particular cruise went to Nassau and Freeport, Bahamas. Don't go to Freeport on a Sunday. They take their day of rest seriously. Everything was closed. I would have had a much better time just staying on the ship. The boarding and debarkation process is down to a science. Carnival really knew what they were doing.

Pros: Extremely clean ship. Friendly people. Lots of fun.

Cons: The food was just okay.

Recommends Carnival Ecstasy? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was clean. The decor is a bit loud.
Food and Dining
Carnival keeps their prices very low. I think they can do this by pulling back on the food. No more ice sculptures and other favors like that. The food in the regular dining room was fair to good. They would serve you as much you wanted. The buffet areas were just okay at best.
Cabin / Stateroom
Hey... it's stateroom. Have you ever been on a cruise. They aren't meant to be too big. Our cabin steward was perfect. The room was always clean. Plenty of water and soda in the room along with extra toiletries.
Service and Staff
The staff were a bigger jewel than you can find at Diamonds International. Go for the fun.
Lots to do and scheduled all day and night long. Personal winner of two "Ships On A Stick"
