My husband and I recently took our first cruise. I thought it would be an ok vacation and my husband was a little skeptical, but we decided to go because it was more affordable than some of the other options we had explored. Boy we were surprised!! After the first hour on the ship it finally hit us we were on officially on vacation. The ship is a little dated and the carpet near the elevators ...

This was our 4th cruise, 3rd on Carnival. We traveled with my sister and her family- all first timers, to see how they would like it.The good news is that they all had a wonderful time and plan to go on another cruise in the future. Ecstasy is small compared to the other ships in the fleet. While I missed the spaciousness of ships like Conquest, it would be ideal for anyone who has difficulty ...

I have been a member on CC for a few years. When I prepare for a cruise I really try to learn from other members points and ideas. I have been watching the Ecstasy reviews for sometime. I did notice that a lot of the reviews were negative and I went on the this trip with a open mind and was ready to have a great time. I have done both Carnival and RCCL for past cruises. All cruises were great and ...

We are a family of 4 with 17 and 13 yo children and this was our First Cruise. Did alot of research on internet and reading reviews. Decided on this 5 day cruise due to price and the kids not missing too much school. Very nervous about being sea sick due to previous deep sea fishing trip. Monday- planned to be early from reading on the message boards. WRONG. The ecstasy was late arriving due to ...

This was our first experience "Cruising" and it hooked us. No sooner than my husband and I got home, we started looking for additional cruises to take later on. Our cruise was 5 PERFECT WEATHER days with 1 sea-1 cozumel-1 progresso-1 sea-and then your home itinerary. RECOMMENDATION: Pre-book your excursions through either your online or local travel agency or through the cruise line itself ...

We were a group of 9 adults for the Feb 1 sailing for a 4 day cruise to Cozumel. We stayed at the Quality Inn and ate at Tortuga for dinner the night before the cruise. The hotel was great and the food and margaritas at Tortuga were awesome. There were only 2 ships in port on the day we sailed. The weather for sailing was misty, cool and overcast; but the ship was comfortable and fabulous. ...

We spent the night prior to the cruise at the Holiday Inn on the Beach. We have stayed there before. The hotel is okay, but seemed more rundown this time. It is right on the beach, the pool is okay. The rooms were smaller than I remembered and needed updates. Bathroom was dirty but the worse part was the room was overrun with ants. Service was satisfactory in the hotel. We took the first shuttle ...
