Carnival Ecstasy Cruise Review by TheCuzaco

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2016
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

The embarkation was full of carnival employees that seemed bothered by their job. No smiles and all seemed irritated to be working there. This seemed to be the mood of most on the ship as well. The food was sub par to the royal Caribbean cruise I had taken in the past. The formal dining was full of waiters and waitresses that really seemed to enjoy what they do. Well trained always smiled and gave you everything that you wanted. Kudos to the dining staff.

The Ship only has one small pool. At any given time if you wanted to get in the pool you would have to stand shoulder to shoulder with other guests. My kids did really enjoy the water slides and they were never extremely busy. Our room attendant on two separate occasions barged into our room unannounced. The second time he actually accused me of smoking in the room. I don't even smoke.

It was always a hassel to move about the ship as the ship was booked to capacity. You would wait up to 10 minutes for an elevator. The main public areas were at all times packed with people and there was always traffic jams of people.

The buffet was full of tasteless food. The pizza pirate had some pretty good pizza and the Deli was good also. This was my first Carnival cruise. I really hope that this is not to be expected for all of carnivals ships. I would not recommend Esctacy

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6A R44

Cabin was too small for two adults and 2 kids. the fold down beds came down over top of the main bed and made it very very hard to move around the room. The room attendants really need to learn better english and need to learn how to announce themselves before barging into rooms.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Junkanoo beach. The Tiki Bikini Hut. Best part of the trip


Didnt bother getting off the bout. Industrial district had to take cab for over 30 minites to get to a nice beach.
