Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Review summaryThis was a cruise celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. We were treated like royalty. Felix, our room steward was amazing, Amin, our server at dinner, was beyond amazing, Alexey, the head of guest services was very kind to us- we met him in passing and we explained we were celebrating our anniversary and traveling with a couple who was celebrating a birthday and he sent us a bottle of wine to our dinner table. The lady who helped us so much at guest services also sent us a bottle of wine to our room the last night of our cruise. We were very humbled by their kindness. I have an uncontrolled seizure disorder and when I got separated from my husband and had a seizure in our room and Felix found me, it was handled exactly like I wanted: no fuss. It made such an impact on my husband, who was a first time cruiser, that he is ready to go again!
Food and Dining
Wind Song Dining Room
We met our friends every evening for dinner. And our server Amin was beyond amazing. He made sure my husband had a special meal prepared for him. One night I had to leave dinner early and he let my husband bring my dinner plate to me. Beyond amazing!! I’d rate higher if I could. This area was the best of the best!! And we really had the best of the best!!
Great! Had something for everyone!
I purchased 2 massages for my husband- what I didn’t expect was a sales pitch afterwards. Totally inappropriate. We are there to relax. I expect to be hit up by sales when we are in port, NOT while we are onboard!
Photos are memories that last a lifetime. These are things I cherish beyond our cruise. Be sure to get the free gifts they offer with the more you purchase. And they make great gift. Be sure to purchase the usb card.
Guest Services / Shore Excursions
My advice is to book through Carnival! I woke up with a migraine and called guest services because I didn’t want the excursion people waiting on us at the pier. They refunded us our money! Totally unexpected! And very much appreciated!

Cabin / Stateroom
My only piece of advice is to be nice to others and they will be nice you. A little kindness goes a very, very long way.
