Review Summary

Due to hurricanes hitting the areas the cruise changed from 5 ports to 4 ports which ended up being 3 ports. More sea days than I had planned for, but I did enjoy and it gave us time to meet several new friends on those sea days

!st time on the Ecstacy but it's just like the Paradise so was familiar with the layout. The elevators in the aft were out the entire cruise, but they did have people working on them.
