Review summary

What a great experience. Too much food, too much alcohol, not enough sleep. I will surely be doing another cruise in my future. Canvival Ecstacy did not disapoint.

Great. We did purchase Faster to the Fun because we were new to cruising amd wanted to ensure an easy embarkation. Super quick and easy.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food always available. Fun dining room experience. Great food, lots of options. We purchased the alcohol package and that was a blast. I do wish they offered more than just water, tea, and lemonade in the buffet,Guy's and Blue Iguana. I could go to the bar to request a diet coke. But, having it in the main drink station would have been nice. The only other idea would be an all the time nacho bar.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There were tons of activities available. But, our group was very laid back. We hit the Alchemy bar, Serenity deck, Lido deck for people watching...but didnt go to any shows.


We just didnt go to any.

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Most everyone was fantastic. Friendly, fun, helpful, and quick.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is dated. But, it didn't take away from the experience. There were leaks here and there and areas shut off for maintenance. But, it wasnt distracting.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Size was fine for two people. It was clean. There was nothing needing improvement....but maybe more towel art. There were days we didnt get any.

Ship tip

Have mini meals so that you can try more things. We would do the buffet for tastes a couple hours before dinner.
