Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2015

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.

Cabin Review

Cabin 7E

Very small. One bed for 3 people is ridiculous.

Port Reviews

Key West

Beautiful port with lots of places to visit within walking distance.


Beautiful port. Lots of shops within walking distance.


I've lived in Miami all my life. There's lots of things to do and places to visit.
