Christmas in Ecstasy -- December 20-25, 2010
"The cast of characters for this Christmas cruise was me, Cindy, age 50, and my husband Jim, also 50. That's it...no kids, no pets, no extended family, or at least not on this cruise. The only thing of interest we..."Read More

Well, just returned from our first....and last....Carnival cruise. Hated the Ecstasy, she was filthy, the service was appalling and the layout of the ship was terrible. There were muliticolored squares, triangles and every other geometric shape imaginable all over the walls and hallways. I felt like I was being hypnotized or tortured all the time. It is obviouse she has been dry docked and ...

My bff and I just got back from our cruise! We had the most relaxing time! Food was outstanding, rooms clean and staff wonderful! First the food...24 hours a day there is always food. You can order as much as you want in dining room or can go to the grill for hamburgers and hot dogs. There is a Mongolian grill and rotisserie. Buffets, pizza and deli! I tried foods I would not have ordered in a ...

This was my husbands and I second cruise,kids first. We were at the terminal by 11:30 and breezed right through security and on to the board. I don't know if I would go this early or not next time because nothing really opens until after 1:30 including being able to go to your room. My husband on the other hand liked being there early. We parked at Galveston Park and Cruise right across the ...

Our seasoned family of 4 set sail for the Thursday - Monday aboard the very familiar Ecstasy. We've sailed on her 6-7 times over the years. She will be changing ports soon, so we took the opportunity to sail on her one last time while her home port was convenient to our home! We booked two porthole cabins on the Main deck. Cost being the driving factor and this was a free upgrade from ...

This is a great ship! I am sad it is going to Louisiana. Our room, cabin U1 on Upper Deck (6) was nice. The two beds pushed together held my hubby, me and my 10 year old daughter, and my hubby and I are really big. The bed was comfortable and our steward was Dana...he was amazing! He always talked to us by name, made sure we had everything we needed and was very nice. I loved all the towel animals ...

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 ...

First off don't let your expectations get too high. It is a vacation...relax and enjoy it. Embarkation was easier than I expected. Make sure to get a passport of some kind...the lines ARE shorter. Just follow the lines there are people there to direct you and answer any questions you have. Keep your passport and your boarding pass in your hands until you get your sail & sign card. If you can use a ...

We are fresh off the ship from 5 wonderful nights on the Ecstasy. Our cabin was a tight squeeze for our family of 5, but it was manageable. Our cabin steward was wonderful. Fresh ice was always in the bucket, and we came home to a different precious towel animal every evening after dinner. My 15 year old son and 7 year old daughter spent every minute they could in their respective Carnival ...

I got a fairly good discount on this cruise through the company I work for so this was a good deal as far as vacations go. I took this cruise with my boyfriend and it was our first cruise. The cruise ship itself was ok, but the vacation was very nice and relaxing. Embarkation: We arrived around 11:30 and were on the ship no later than 12:15. It was pretty easy. We got on the ship, had ...
