The Oct. 18th sailing was my 2nd time on the Ecstasy and 10th Carnival sailing. As usual, Carnival gave me a good vacation and a very good value for my money. I did not arrive at the Bayport Terminal until 11:30 and it was quite congested as the ship was three hours late in arriving. There was a line to get into the terminal and even a longer line to get through security. I was disappointed with ...

Our trip started out well. We arranged a flyin/cruise package with the Springhill Suites. We arrived at Hobby, got picked up, spent the night, had a good breakfast, a quick rest and than Coach USA sent a private driver to pick us up at the hotel. Bayport Cruise Terminal is a 81 million dollar joke. It is in the middle of nowhere, has very little parking and thank goodness we had a driver or ...

This is my first hurricane season cruise, and I'm still trying to decide if it was a leap of faith or an act of foolishness to book for September. But, it all managed to come together, and this turned out to be my best cruise on Carnival. Great crew, a nice group of passengers, and a beautiful ship that does a hell of a job of disguising its age. GETTING THERE - EMBARKATION - THE FIRST DAY ...

My husband and I book this cruise on the Sunday prior to the departure, so it was a very last minute thing. The price was too good to pass up. We did the 5 day on the Ecstasy last year and it was awesome. We were a little let down with this cruise, but still had a great time. We made it to Houston around 10:30 and were on the ship by 12:30. We had lunch then went to take a nap. We were late ...

Where to begin......after taking 3 or 4 days to find out if the ship was sailing, since Galveston was not an option, everything else went just fine before leaving port. Food - most of the dining room experience I would classify as not the best. The food was only adequate, but the waiters in Windsong were pretty good. The dining room was too cold, so we had to change our dining attire and then ...

Just back: CARNIVAL-ECSTASY- Review (1-27-07/2-1/07): Arrival in Houston: We arrived at Houston International Airport a bit late, but were able to get to the rental car shuttle quickly to be taken to the main rental-car terminal. Got our car with no problems we had reserved from Enterprise Rental. In fact...to our pleasure we received an upgrade and a sporty red car to use to drive down to ...
