Excellent Ecstasy: Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review by getupgo

Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
This is the first time we chose the least expensive cabin which was on deck 4. It was very comfortable and quiet. In fact, we talked to people who were on Deck 8 that paid much more whose cabin was under the stage and they could hear the whole show in their More cabin. I recommend you check that out when choosing a cabin. We were mid ship and convenient to both the dining room and the buffet. This was our first time with "your time dining" and we loved it. We never had to stand in line. We had to request sitting with other couples because we enjoy visiting with new acquaintances and always got very interesting tablemates. The food was pretty good in the Wind Star dining room. One evening our dessert was very slow coming and our table mates left without it, and it did seem the service was a little slow because there was no way to grade the servers so there is no accountability. We did not eat in the buffet other than breakfast because we were off the ship every day. We did eat there twice for lunch and it was excellent. There was a big variety of unfried, non starch vegetables which isn't always the case. I thought the desserts were excellent in the dining room and the buffet too. Less
Cabin review: 6AR192 Ocean View
We had a ocean view cabin on Deck 4 which is the cheapest deck. I had no complaints at all. The room was large enough for the two of us. Nice flat screen tv. Bathroom was larger than a lot in my past experience. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were wonderful. Our steward kept the place clean and gave us towel animals every day and there was chocolate mints which Royal Caribbean doesn't give. I really like this ship even if it is getting older. It was spotlessly clean. Our cabin number was R192 and I see no reason to pay more to be on a higher deck.Read All Ocean View (6A) Reviews >>

Bland, old ship; boring food, ...
Good time, but not what I was ...
Better than expected
