Ship Facts: Carnival Ecstasy Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Ecstasy Deck Plans
Family Gathering 11 of us on vacation
We had been planning this cruise for months. Finally school was out and crusing time. We live about 2 hours from Galveston so i prebooked E-Z parking and paid and printed out 7:30 am and two stops we were parking our 3 cars. Loaded up one van to the terminal and went thru security. Yes they did check our water bottles and also any other liquid. Got our S&S card and our classic picture with the toddler sleeping in his stroller. ON deck by noon and eating on the Lido deck. Food was great and at 1:30pm found our cabins and our luggage. 3:30pm the drill and off we went out to the blue ocean.

We had a huge table for all 11 of us in the dinning room. We ate all 5 nights there and had wonderful food and wait staff. The grandchildren ate off the children's menu with every night having a glass of chocolate milk waiting for them. Food here and on Lido deck was really good. My husband and grandchildren enjoyed the ice cream.

Entertainment was good and we went 3 nights out of 5.

We all enjoyed the slide on the top deck as we sailed on the ocean. Pool was a great refreshing way to spend the afternoon.

Progreso was great with the bus service. We did the double decker bus tour. Then shopped and back to the ship.

Cozumel only 3 daughters, son in law and grandchildren got off. We walked around the shops and ate and back to the ship to swim.

Photographs were great and i ended up with the canvas print.

Basically i did not like the ship at all. After being on a larger ship makes a difference.

Shopping okay and i got the matching earrings to the ring i bought in October on the Glory.

All in all for a great family geat away for our family it was fun and we made lasting memories for us.

( sorry if there are typos the check spelling button is not working)
