Will miss her

Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

dayne
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We have cruised on the Ecstasy a few times. We will miss her as her last voyages are near. The staff is amazing and even though she is old and weary the ship is spotless. We witnessed staff dancing with and playing with the children on board and going above and beyond to make hem smile. Also crew assisted disabled passengers in a fun and kind way. The food was the highlight. Even the buffet food ...

Impromptu Solo Cruise

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

ThatMermaid
2-5 Cruises • Age 40s

I enjoy cruising, and it is not my first time of going on a solo cruise. In 2022, I started off the year on Carnival Valor on a New Years Eve cruise, followed by a Valentine's Day 8 day cruise on Carnival Freedom, and I have a birthday cruise already lined up for November on Carnival Horizon. I became listless and decided an end of the summer cruise would be fine, and booked within a month of ...

Dollie13
First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

I was invited on this cruise by family it was my 1st time & I loved it. I would hear people say how small ship was but to me was huge!! The check in process was very smooth, the food was delicious, the best coffee I've ever had. The entertainment was so great. I had so much fun!! Every employee I came in contact with couldn't do enough to make sure I had everything I needed. The energy that ...

Horrible cruise line…

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

Adam B
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Our room smelled like smoke, and we contacted Pande our stateroom attendant three different days of the five day cruise. The burgers and pizza was fine but the FINE restaurant food was total joke. People dressing up for food that’s like the western sizzler…please. Definitely not up scale at all. If your in to quantity of food it’s your cruise but if you want quality… this is definitely not it. ...

Jr Suite on carnival Ecstasy

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We love that there were now cruises out of Mobile! We had booked especially after 8-9 cruises were previously cancelled and tried a Jr. Ste unobstructed supposedly. There were several large cranes in view and a deck below. I Always try to check the view and what’s above/below but no indications of either issue. This was the smallest balcony I’ve ever had. Needless to say I only spent about 5 ...

Book a Great Value

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

stusclan
10+ Cruises • Age 20s

We are on day two of our Ecstasy cruise and everything is wonderful. We are in our late 60's with more than 10 cruises, and have no complaints. We have cruised on Princess, Holland, NCL and Oceania, and would compare this cruise to Princess and Holland. Yes the ship is old but everything is clean and up to spec. The carpets look new and you would not think this is the ship's final season. I ...

Staff was outstanding

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

coldweather
10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We booked the Carnival Ecstasy 5 day sailing from Mobile, AL with stops in Costa Maya and Cancun. We could not pass up the low price. 1479 passengers about 73% capacity. There were no lines for anything. There were ALWAYS lounge chairs available except for directly next to the pool. Although this is an older ship that is scheduled to be retired (scrapped) in the fall, it was well worth it ...

The Little Ship That Could

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

Dadofsix
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

This was a last minute decision to cruise for us. Just happened to check rates on a Monday just being curious and found a great deal within driving distance of North Louisiana. We had never been on the Ecstasy or that class of ship before and figured this was probable the last chance we would have so we booked a 4 day leaving on Thursday. Well aware that this was the second cruise of the ship and ...

Worst cruise ever!

Review for a Caribbean - Western Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

CynthiasDad
2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

This was the worst cruise experience I have ever experienced! From the moment of arrival, all was a disaster. The ship was late getting there, which led to chaos. I would have been fine if that were the only downfall. They charged us for covid test we didn't even take. Because the ship was late, we waited to purchase an excursion because we didn't want to purchase something we ...

Disappointed

Review for a Bahamas Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

CruizeRox
6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

First of all this is an OLD boat that sounded like it was losing parts along the way. We paid for a window room. The window had barnacles, paint spots and dirt, therefore we could hardly see thru it. The food was disgusting and tasted old. With the coronavirus going around they did take precautions by not allowing anyone to serve themself at the buffet which was a good thing. The ...
