Older ship still a fun time

can tell the ship is older. Seemed to have a sewage smell on our whole floor for some reason. The Last night of the cruise was EXTREMELY rough. Made all of us sea sick. You can tell the staff was a training staff. A lot of them were very rude and not very welcoming like other cruises I have been on. Only one hot tub open on the main deck the whole time. Other one was taped up with plastic and a out of order sign on it. Kids attacked the one hot tub that was open and never gave us a chance to get in. Don't want everything to be negative so the food was extremely good. The up charge they now charge for lobster tail was a bummer but the other options were just as delicious. Dining room wait staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Probably nicest on the ship. Overall I will be sailing out of Florida on newer ships with more experienced staff from now on. Still was a fun time overall. 

Cabin / Stateroom
extremely small. Smaller than other ships I feel like. For 3 grown adults it was a struggle but we made it happen. Pull out bed matress was thin as a pancake and all you could feel was springs in your back.

Ecstasy is an older rough riding ship. Only take this ship if you get an extremely good deal.
