Carnival Ecstasy is overrated...

Pool area is super small. Unless you get out early and reserve a lounge chair with your towel, you won't get a spot near the pool. Serenity Adult only area is pretty small as well. Hard to get a longer chair there, too.

Drinks were abundantly available and flowing on day 1. After that, don't rely on anyone coming around for your drink order. You will wait in LONG lines to get your drink.

Food was not great. Repetative menu. Buffett area was so hot, we were sweating while trying to eat. Main dining was okay. NOTHING spectacular in any food location! Room service menu also disappointing. You CANNOT use your Cheers! drink card when ordering room service. So much for enjoying that cocktail in your room.

VIP Luxury Sailing Shore excursion was a FLOP! Snorkling gear fell off of boat while traveling to reef site. Spent over an hour trying to locate gear. Finally gave up looking and we were told we could swim instead. Paid $105 each for a snorkel excursion. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Our room staff were GREAT! Always clean and never had to ask for anything.

Overall, we were super disappointed. Won't be cruising on that boat again.
