May 2015 - 3 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy
A nice weekend getaway
----------Housekeeping personnel was extremely polite and always smiling it was a nice touch that they knew and greeted us by our names.
In the dinning room however the wait time was long. but the food was ok.
we had ordered (FUN SHOP online prior to saililng date) things for our friends rooms that were not delivered (so if i hadn't been on the cruise to know that.....)and no one gave us a heads up... only the last day when i realized... So i was able to ask for them to be redelivered.
-------------In Nassau We took the Atlantis beach day and tour. and several times we specifically asked when we could take the guided tour... at each station: on the boat, on the bus who took us there and also to the guide who showed us the premises they kept on telling us... it's at your leisure... you can go when ever you want.... so we went to lunch and when we got to the entrance we were extremely surprised that there were 2 specifically time frame for the guided tour noon and 2pm. we could have planned around that if we had been given the proper information....Wasted money we paid more than the "beach only" tour and got majorly scammed. specially that we asked at least 3 different people from the tours organizers.
I've been on several cruises before on Royal Caribbean and Norgian and they were much more upscale...
But on a budget, overall this was a nice short cruise...
