This review is for the ship "Ecstasy" with Carnival Cruise Lines. Since the port in Galveston was closed due to fog and we did not make it to Mexico, I can only give tips that are useful while on the ship. This is a "fun" ship which means if you like to party (drink & dance) and/or have children then this is the ship for you. Following are some tips that might make your sail easier: ...

Ecstasy Cruise-April 23, 2009 & April 27, 2009-Back to Back I am 47 and went on this cruise with my DW 42. The second leg of the Back to Back was my DW's birthday cruise. This was our fifth and sixth cruise, all with Carnival. This was our first time on the Ecstasy. The first leg went to Cozumel Mexico. The second leg was supposed to go to Progresso and Cozumel. We stayed in an inside room U131 on ...

I know that is an odd statement to make when it cost us 2 days of our cruise. But we have been to Cozumel 100 times and we were not even going to get off the ship in Progresso...so we did not miss a thing!! Embarkation was very easy for us. We waited in the air-conditioned section where the folks were getting OFF...until they opened the door. Then when the first group escorted to the ...

Let me say that I have never had a "bad" cruise....but this one was sub par in almost every area. Carnival cut 2 days off our itinerary due to Hurricane Gustav. Let us know less than 24 hours prior to sailing....kinda short notice. Could have been done sooner, but I can deal with that. Embarkation on the Ecstasy was horrific. Waited over 3.5 hours. They had alot of cancellations ...

This ship was 2 days late returning to port because of hurricane Gustav. As a result, at least 50% of the folks cancelled their cruise and an e-mail with a $99 last minute cruise to nowhere caught DH's eye. He called and booked right away. The options were an assigned midship cabin or a guaranteed inside or oceanview (extra $20 per person) We opted for the latter, hoping to get an oceanview on the ...

Took advantage of a hurricane special. A half cruise to nowhere for 3 nights on the Ecstasy. We paid 99 dollars plus the normal taxes and fuel surcharge. The price was certainly right but the fuel surcharge should have been reduced. We cruised a few hours out of port and sat dead still in the water for the next 2 days. When we returned the people in Galveston told us we were anchored just ...
