We just returned from a 6 day cruise on the Ecstasy. I booked late and you were able to arrange a table for 6 at our preferred time. I admit I had low expectations for our 19th cruise as we just wanted to insure our friend William Schaecher had a great 1st cruise! Imagine our amazement that this older craft gave us a wonderful experience and based upon the crew possibly our best cruise ...

Well where do start. I know how about Sunday morning at 7am where the crew was dragging some big item across the floor and banging with a large hammer. How about the disgusting smell at the elevator entrance that makes you want to commit. I realize it's a cruise and your not suppose to set in your room but maybe having more than 5 TV channels that repeat programming over and over. Now let me get ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This was our first cruise and Ecstacy sure did set the bar high. From the moment my 11 and 8 year old boys seen the ship till the last day unloading the excitement never stopped. Kyndall Fire was our CD and she was amazing. She interacted with all the kids, danced with them and of course for one last time, unloading, had to say, BYEeeeeeee ok bye, to my boys. They loved her. Boarding was a breeze. ...

Chose this cruise due to its close proximity to our home. I wish beyond wishes I would have read reviews before booking. As soon as we walked on boat my husband and I looked at each other in horror. The smell is so overwhelming. Complete and utter sewage smell ALL the time. The boat felt so unclear as it is outdated, old, rusty etc. I could barely sleep...it felt like I was sleeping in an RV ...

The boat swayed, rocked and rolled even in calm waters. Smelled like sewage the whole trip. Even when we were docked the boat vibrated like driving down a dirt road. Seemed the bars were always understaffed, wait time could be long. Not sure why they would wait for your pizza order before they would make a pizza, line was long and they made pizza when you ordered It instead of a pizza buffet. ...

Everything excellent . Driving to port saves on cost. The ship was clean, staff friendly. I cruise a lot and carnival suits me fine. The food was great. Cabin was great (interior to save money. I usually cruise 2 times a year. I just like the casual atmosphere of carnival. I do this cruise at least one time each year When I want to splurge I go on RCCL. Not stuffy but more elegant in some ...

Chose this cruise because it was 5 days and at a port not too far from where we lived. Easy drive. Embarkation went smoothly. Cabins weren't ready until 1:30pm so we went to Lido Deck buffet. When we got to the cabin, our room attendant came in and asked us when we wanted our room made up. Morning, afternoon or night. We chose morning. That means they don't appear again till the next morning. ...

This was our eighth cruise and it was terrible. There was something being drug overhead and banging noises on things outside of the ship all hours of the night. My husband woke up around four in the morning and was met with the floor outside the bathroom being flooded. Called customer service and they sent someone down to check. Had to put up with fans in the room and the hallway drying the ...

This ship is small, outdated, and poorly kept. Stateroom feels like staying in an old camper. We experienced a disgusting septic backup in our bathroom and guest services refused to offer anything other than a credit for a $50 bar tab. Beds and bedding are cheap and uncomfortable. Ship was cold with no heat available in room. No specialty restaurants are available. The food offerings are ...
