Ship: Carnival Ecstasy

Traveled As: Couple

Ship is older and there is evidence of many layers of paint in places and some rust in other places. Overall\, it is in excellent condition\, especially the interior spaces. Very clean and well-maintained inside.

Staff was very attentive to our needs and very friendly and considerate. Seemed there was always someone cleaning inside and out. They work very hard\, yet are always willing to stop and give directions or answer questions.

Carnival had many workers in red shirts positioned all over the ship when we embarked to help you find your way or answer any questions.

Room stewards (Youda and Salmon) went above and beyond\, and were very personable.

Food and Dining

Food was OK. Definitely not gourmet but certainly adequate. There was something for everyone. We did not go to over indulge and enjoyed a lot of fresh fruit.
