7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 30, 2016
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: M111
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

not a good port to leave from, Charleston is fighting the idea of enlarging the cruise port, so they don't make it very easy to embark or disembark.  The Ecstacy is the oldest, shabbiest ship we've been on!  Out of the 7 day cruise, we only visited two ports due to fog in Half Moon Cay.  I thought ships had GPS!  Entertainment was lacking, as well as comfortable seating to sit and read or just relax.  Food in main dining room was excellent.  Service was also very good.
