This was my 5th cruise taken with Carnival and my 8th one altogether. I always travel with my husband and 2 sons, who are now teenagers. We got right out of our vehicle, my husband parked, and we were able to walk right up to the attendant and get our cards and load on the boat. I think it was around 1:30.
We thought the Ecstasy was a very clean looking, clean smelling, beautiful theme, the 3D artwork next to the elevators were eye-catching and fun, the ship didn't have any vibrating noises.
We had wonderful weather and smooth seas,, but I didn't feel it rock but one evening and the captain took care of that!
