  3. Carnival Ecstasy
We love cruising with Carnival, as we know what to expect, and we like longer cruises, so this 10 day was a perfect choice for us. We ha cabin U-40 which had lot of room, and we were comfortable with the temperature Very little bathroom storage, but we made adjustments. Room was actually for 4, so at headboard there was this ledge overhead and you could no sit back and watch TV and you had to be careful not to sit up. The ship is very old, and set up strange to me. You had to figure out where you wanted to go when choosing an elevator, as they all went to different floors. One of the aft elevators was broken the entire time. Air conditioner appeared to be broken as it was very hot in interior areas. Casino was horribly hot, and we only went in for drawings and early mornings. ( Was a Casino premiere cruise). You can tell this is a training ship, as crew did not seem to know duties, or how to "exceed expectations" Fun squad was entertaining and had a very difficult task, as our cruise went from 10 days/5 ports to 10 days/ 3 ports due to weather. Comedy club manager was poor. Had no personality, tells the same "homeless vagina" joke every night. Kept cutting comedian's set short when he complained about the hot temperatures. Coffee area very slow service, and this ship does not have the "customer first rule" and she focused on crewmembers orders. Dining staff served wrong orders. I will continue to travel Carnival, but never agai on this ship

Not so good of a trip
