Review for a Caribbean - Eastern Cruise on Carnival Ecstasy

Reason we chose this cruise: It was in a day drive, low budget and fit into fall break for our teen. Embarkation and disembarkation was very smooth and efficient. Ship was old and dated and many of the areas on the ship had cosmetic issues - tiles off of walls, cracks and rust. After the second night in the dining room we successfully found a great service team that we stuck with for ...

the entertainment was great we had such a good time at all of the shows we didn't attend the hasbro game show though maybe next time. We really enjoyed playing bingo and I loved the clue game it kept you going everyday to places to find clues hopefully they will start some kind of whodunnit on all the ships. Lido food was really good and as always Guys burgers was better than best dining room food ...

I selected this cruise, because it was 7 nights with an itinerary we have never been to. We live in Jacksonville, which makes it a very convenient port. This was our 3rd time out of Jacksonville, but first time on the Carnival Ecstasy, previously we sailed on the Carnival Elation out of Jacksonville. The embarkation and disembarkation progress has really been simplified, last year we got ...

Worst cruise i have ever taken. First night no fresh towels, watered down drinks, had cheers package told i couldn’t have Tito’s when i had it previous days. Cold dinners, lastly had a massage and showed up for my time and they tell me they changed it to 30 minutes later. The massage was the worst the lady was pulling my hair. Bartender at the casino avoided me every single time then when i asked ...

Small ship did not disappoint

It's been a number of years since we sailed on a Fantasy class ship, but I recalled the pace feeling less frantic, not feeling crowded and having incredible service. Elation did not disappoint and reaffirmed those remembrances. There was never a venue, dining room, bar, deck, etc that we were unable to easily find a seat in. Service was generally top notched and there was always something to ...

We wanted to do a week cruise on one of the smaller ships...thus we chose the Elation for the job. Normally this ship runs to the Bahamas, which we have actually taken on her. We were onboard prior to the refit - which was a surprising uplift to the vessel. Since our adult daughter was coming along, we got a suite for the obvious extra room...good move. The Grand Suite was a bit smaller than ...

We have cruised many times and this was the worse ship ever. There was nothing to do. Our room was an interior. I usually love interior rooms because they are so dark it makes sleeping easy. Not on this ship. There is a big crack all around the door letting the hallway light spill in. The way the bed was set up every time I rolled over light was shining in my face. The room was stated for 4 ...

We chose this cruise because it left from Jacksonville, FL and went to Key West, FL and Nassau Bahamas, two places we had never been. Our travel agent warned us that it was an old ship. The ship did show its age, but everything was clean and nothing needed repair. The highlight of the cruise for us was the efficiency and friendliness of the crew. Our head waiter Joseph was the best we have had on ...

After reading all the negative reviews of the Elation I didn't know what to expect. I was greatly surprised. The ship was clean, The Grand Suite was awesome ( a few signs of aging) The Service EVERYWHERE on the ship was excellent. The dining room staff, Guest Relations, Cabin crew and the bar crew were all extremely nice and helpful. The embarkation process was not as smooth as it had been in ...

My wife talked me into going on a cruise with her brother his wife and a group of friends. I have always thought i would not enjoy a cruise. I was wrong i did enjoy it. The food was great the fellowship with family and friends was great. I loved key west and will go back sometime when i can spend more time there. The service crew was great every one was great until time to get off the ship. We had ...
