Snorkeling Cruise: Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review by rdavidnann
Overall Member Rating
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Then on Half Moon Cay (it is beautiful too & plenty to see & do). the snorkeling was disappointing but it was wavy so we body surfed & had a good time. The meal furnished by the ship was great but a bit of a walk from the entrance after departing the tenders.
We've been to Nassau many times so we stayed on the boat this time, relaxed by the pool & played "corn hole" up on the stage by the pool. In Nassau we've done a small cat snorkeling More tour, or we've just walked the city up to the Queen's Staircase & fort (small fee). One time we took a city bus to Cable beach. Also we've taken a water taxi to Atlantis & just walked around inside it which is BEAUTIFUL!! You can spend as little or as much & see all the island has to offer.
We really enjoyed the Ecstasy--an older, classic ship. We met a lot of great people, did "Our time" dining for the first time & REALLY liked it. The food was great, service great & as Ballroom dancers (in learning) we did get to do a lot of dancing. A young band, Samantha the singer, played a variety of music styles & took requests. Enjoyed the 2 shows & participated in line dancing at sail-off & the deck party with Mex. buffet. A cruise is always what you make it--plan to have a great time, meet new "friends" & you'll have a great cruise.
I always save the "FUN TIMES"; are you looking for anything in particular? Formal night was the 2nd night, Deck party & Mex. buffet the 3rd night, Superstar Karaoke & Quest the 4th night. Carnival always has plenty to do. Less
