7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Charleston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 29, 2016
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: R46
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

We loved sailing on this smaller Carnival ship. There were more than enough amenities to enjoy, but much less of a crowd to wade through. The staff and crew onboard were really great - a very happy, eager to please group.  Myself and my two sons (4 and 10) enjoyed everything about the trip.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Carnival's menu could use some updating (mainly the same as 2001 and onward), but the food quality is good and abundant.

Shows were kind of blah - entertainers very talented, just not a great show to show them off.

Cabin was nice, small as expected but the view was lovely.

Ship Tip

Drink package is really hard to make good use of. The $50 per drink max is a joke - you can't get doubles, so the most you can really spend on one drink is in the $12 range. You have to drink morning to night. Still nice to not think about how much you are spending though.

Beautiful beach and pool FREE and right off the ship. Loved this port!

Drink machines not working for better part of lunch - this was not great considering the heat. Lovely playground for the kids. Water was gorgeous.

Do an excursion here! Not much to walk and see unless you are into crowds and overprices souvies.
