Our First Cruise
Loved the private Island Half Moon Cay but 6.5 hrs is too short. Even at our other port (Freetown) we felt the ship left too early and would have appreciated a full 12 hrs to enjoy/explore the ports. Carnival initially appealed to us b/c of low pricing, and if you are a budget cruiser this is the way to go. For us we felt like by the time we paid for all the upgrades and packages (everything on board is a sales pitch) we could have traveled on a more expensive (more inclusive) cruise line. That being said, we were in no way dissapointed and enjoyed every minute of the cruise!

Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Ecstasy has recently undergone renovations/upgrades. Most notably the Blue Iguana Cantina, BlueIguana Tequila Bar, RedFrog Rum bar and Guy Feirri's Burger Joint were put in. Also be sure to check out the newly installed Alchemy Bar (I recommend the "Quick Fix" or the "Cucumber Refresher").
