  3. Carnival Ecstasy
We chose this cruise as we received an offer on a reduced room rate. Also as we live near Charleston, it just seemed right. This was our second cruise with Carnival, and it was enjoyable. The Ecstasy has some age on her (1991), but she is a good ship. There are rust and mechanical issues, but... What really impressed us was the staff. They were first class. The day at Princess Cay was a nice beach-day. The lunch line-wait seemed a bit long. and the tenders were interesting. In Freeport we took the City Tour. It was a Sunday, so many stores were not open. Carnival "works" with the local vendors to open on Sunday. The tour bus we were on was not in the best condition (interior). Our driver was quite entertaining. I took the "Behind the Fun" tour - do not miss it if you like to see how Cruise ships operate. We are starting to plan our next Cruise on the Sunshine. It is just so nice to drive to the dock and gat on the ship!

Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin 4C U11
Cabin was always clean, and we had enough room. The interior room was not bad as we really only slept in the room. The TV was not good as there seemed to be connection problems (lots of pixilation)
