Ship Facts: Carnival Ecstasy Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Ecstasy Deck Plans
Our 9th cruise: Carnival Ecstasy
We booked this cruise to celebrate our son's graduation. For 4 travelers, we had 2 Ocean View cabins on Deck 5 (Main) and were very pleased with the location and the big window.

We usually book a balcony, but this was fine for a short cruise. There are a very limited number of balconies on this ship. This cruise was the winner of the easiest boarding process. It was also the winner of the easiest disembark process. We really liked all of the seafood offered at both the dining room and Lido Deck buffet locations. It is always fresh. I actually got the salmon 4 nights in a row in the dining room because it was so hot and fresh. The two 23-yr olds liked the ribs, steaks, and lobster. They also tried the chocolate melting cake and baked Alaska for the first time and thought they were the best.

We also received room service twice for breakfast and it was right on time and consistent as usual. Again, the smoked salmon on a bagel with cream cheese and capers is very good. The younger guys ordered cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit. As far as service, we thought it was all excellent as far as dining, cabin maintenance, and room service.

We spent some time each day on the "Serenity Adult Only" area on the back of the ship. The 2 whirlpool tubs are too crowded. Carnival should put some time limits on how long passengers can stay in there. One group of 9 stayed in there for 2 hours and they were loud because they were drinking a lot. One whirlpool was hot and one was luke warm. There was no problem getting a lounge chair and they had an attendant who checked out big yellow beach towels for that area. We ordered drinks and thought that they were very weak (Mojito and Hurricane)and not worth the price. A "Classic Mojito" is $8.75 with 15% gratuity ($1.31) for $10.59. We ended up going with a bucket of Coors Light 16oz. for $25.41. The shows were good and the comedians were hysterical. Best overall: Food and Service Worst Overall: Whirlpools
