Carnival Ecstasy by Dudlena

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This ship was said to be updated and we found the cleanliness of the slides to not be up to par. The room staff was not as attentive as we have had in the past. Shower and sink were not as clean as we would like. We has no choice but to book in the lower floors and we will never do that again. Smelled horrible. We did the two stop snorkel trip. Not worth $70. No drinks, except water and only 30 minutes each in the two reefs

Great Cruise, the children really enjoyed it by tacheras23423

Cruise was great! Did not know they charged for everything. I was charged for a towel because I did not return it to the pool area instead my daughter who was staying in another room booked under another person tool it to her room. Tat was the only problem I had, they need to let first timers know things like that

Ectasy to Bahamas is just OK by sherimblack

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Carnival Ectasy was fun, but not my favorite Cruise with Carnival. I think Carnival should do away with drink maximums, and have more pool areas. That many people for one pool is not working. I would love to see a port added in Savannah, GA.

Overall Relaxing Trip. by mjglover3164

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and had a nice relaxing get away. The one complaint that I do have is that some things seemed to be very unorganized. On Thursday when we docked in Nassau, we scheduled an excursion to go to Atlantis and swim with the Dolphins. We were instructed to meet in the Blue Sapphire at 8:30 and had to wait for late comers to arrive. we also had to wait for tour guides to walk around and check out tickets and handout paperwork. It would make more sense in my mind to have already completed the paperwork and be separated in the correct groups. Also on disembarkment we were told one thing by crew member on one floor and then told the opposite by another crew member on another floor. this created somewhat of a mass confusion.

Awful! Showered in someone else's urine unknowingly! by honeydg1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Horrified I kept complaining 2-3 times a day urine smell in room. We found it 3 days later shower curtain bottom urine stained. They did nothing but change the curtain. When I got home I wrote to them they gave me $100 onboard credit for future use. Like I would ever cruise with them again! Disgusting!

Not a boat for younger kids!!!! by mistyendress

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This boat was very disappointing. My 13 and 14 year olds were bored .Food was not always available unless you wanted to eat pizza. Main dining room .. We were in the wind star... Ordered steak it was chewy and never cooked property... Food was always cold .I know they have to cook it elsewear and bring it up but... They need a new system. Last day I received my bill and for some reason there was still a balance owed. I called at 5:45am to tell them something was wrong They looked at the account and ran the card again without problem .So when we went to leave 2 hours later I was stopped telling me I had a balance and needed to see customer service before I got off the ship!!!! I was mortified#!!! Alll these people looking at me like I can't pay my bill. They had to pull my and my kids aside and we had to wait for them to call cuatomer service. It was embarrassing!!!! My second cruise with carnival and it may my last!!!!

Worst Cruise Ever by andrea51789864

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was a very disappointing trip! I have cruised in the past and it was a fabulous experience. I was so excited to share that with our adult kids and soon to be spouse and we could not get off the ship fast enough! It was filthy. There were small might looking bugs in our cabin. There were more elevators and restrooms closed than open. The food was not good. The customer service staff would just say this is an old ship you should have booked a newer ship. The private island had a rocky rough beach with cloudy waters. it was nothing in comparison to other cruise lines private islands. Our cheers drink package did not work on the island like other cruise lines do. There were very limited eating choices and the food was not great. The ship was in poor condition and NOT CLEAN! 2 of the 4 of us became sick on board. There was mold in our room. There were bugs in our room. I WAS IN TEARS! DO NOT SAIL THIS SHIP OR CARNIVAL!!!
