  3. Carnival Ecstasy
This was our third cruise with Carnival. Embarkation wasn't too bad. Once we got on board we went to eat lunch. We were a bit disppointed that there was no Guy's Burger on this ship but the buffet was very good (Please note that I'm not too picky about food.) The trouble started when we got to the room. There was only one bed for 3 of us. We complained and were offered a cot (they call it a trundle bed) which we adamantly refused so they gave us a roll away bed. Apparently because the Ecstasy is a small ship, their Ocean View rooms don't have the sofa that turns to a twin bed that other Carnival ships have. Had we been told this when we booked, we would have booked two rooms. We were jumping over each other to get around the room. The dining room staff was great as always and the food was delicious. The entertainment was great. We love the shows and this time there was an extra show for Christmas which included all the children. We didn't go on any shore excursions this time. We just walked around both ports and did some shopping. All said, we had a good time. On disembarkation my husband was detained because of his insulin needles which was very upsetting and embarassing.

Rocky start, but still had fun.

Cabin Review

Cabin E72
Very small. One bed for 3 people is ridiculous.
