Sail Date: December 01, 2012 Ship: Carnival Ecstasy Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 5 years ago
We had a good time both on the ship and in the different ports. We would have liked to have more shows\, there were only two and those they repeated. The food in the dining room was good\, better than at the buffet. The casino catered too much to people who smoke and not enough to the non smokers. Much too smokey. The comedy club was great\, both the family shows and the adult only shows. We went to a talk about key west\, waited with a lot of other people\, and then found out that it had been held at another time and there was not notification about it. A lot of people complained about that.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
We chose the early dining time and that worked out great for us. The food was good and there were plenty of choices each evening.

Not enough variety in the shows. Bingo is much too expensive for only 1 game. Would like to see more games with smaller payouts.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
We found the staff very helpful. The super charged maitre d was a bit much. The biggest problem we found was that a lot of the staff did not speak very good english and were very hard to understand what they were saying. Our waiter\, Augusto\, was wonderful. Hr greeted us by name whenever he saw us\, made recommendations for dinner and was just a great person.

Cabin / Stateroom
1 out of 5
The stateroom seemed very small and cramped. It was very hard to get around the bed to look out the window The bathroom was a good size. We didn't spend much time in there except to sleep.
