4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 12, 2015
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: U129
Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise.  The room exceeded our expectations and the weather/sea was excellent.  We are vegetarians, so the food was acceptable.  The salad bar was excellent, but limited in selection, and the restaurant dining was wonderful, with the staff being the hit of the evening.  The deserts were not that good and it was evident that the non-USA staff had little understanding on how to cook some aspects of American cuisine.  For example, the grits were always lumpy.  We were disappointed with the high noise level on the ship.  I understand that the carnival atmosphere is signature of the cruise line, so we will seek another cruise line with a more subdued atmosphere for the next trip.
