Dissapointed with Ecstasy

Sail Date: September 14, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We have sailed many times before with Carnival but this last cruise was very disappointing due to:

1) Sail Card did NOT work properly for one of us the whole cruise despite repeated attempts to correct by Guest Services. This malfunction created embarrassing stops to embark and disembark in ports...Very inefficient response.

2) I was not alerted when I made reservations that Cabin E-218 had a make- shift bed that barely could fit in the space. My wife ended up injuring one leg trying to walk around the bed with so little space...

3) The Wind Star restaurant Any Time Dining is a joke...The average time to serve was very slow and disorganized. Dinner took 90 minutes.

4) Key West Kajak Tour: we were left in Downtown by the shuttle driver who was very rude and did not provide any information how to get back to the ship..

5) Store Trends in Promenade Deck  a person named Sandra was very rude and treated us like we were going to steal something...

One good remark for Michael our Cabin steward was very nice and helpful.

Cabin / Stateroom
Too small space to walk around bed...
You can hit your back head many times due to the poor design with the extra beds on top...
You should be alerted when making reservations...
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Sail Card NEVER worked properly despite Guest Services notified 3 times
Ship Quality
Cabin E-218 should be redesigned...
Destinations and Excursions
Returning shuttle driver from Kajak Tour was very inappropriate
Onboard Activities
Boring and limited
Service and Staff
Michael in Cabin Deck 7
Food and Dining
Food was OK but service was very slow and disorganized
Key West, Florida
Too short stay...
Cozumel, Mexico
Tulum Tour is too long and tiresome


Is getting too old.. TV in Cabin is a miniature
Only ONE plug socket...
Needs to have more balconies...
Needs to provide FOOD for late arrivals in Cozumel after taking Tulum Tour organized by Carnival.
