4 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 01, 2016
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We enjoyed everything and found no problems. Embarking and disembarking was good, did not take too long. (Carry your own luggage to speed up disembarking)

The ship was the oldest and smallest I have been on but it was still fine. We very much enjoyed the shows, the dinners, the adults only serenity deck and especially our excursion in Cozumel. We did the dune buggy and snorkeling. Would have preferred less solicitation of photos. Enjoyed the beauty salon, even got a haircut and blow out, they did a great job. Crew was always high energy and friendly.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dinners were great. The thin individually created pizzas at the regular restaurants were delicious.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Would have liked to see more activities that had nothing to do with additional purchasing.

Got an upgrade to a full window, love it and the cabin steward. All called us by our names.

Ship Tip

Board early and go to lunch. Many had seasickness so bring dramamine or ginger. Drinks are expensive so we split them with an extra cup.

Last time we went there we got a scooter and loved it. Do that or "hop on hop off" otherwise not much to do as the stop is in the morning.
