Ecstasy Cruise Review
This was my first cruise. It was great. There is not one complaint I can come up with. We parked at EZ cruise parking, they were very helpful in loading our bags and bringing us to the ship. Parking was only $35.00 for five days.
We got right on the ship at 11:00 no waiting. We at lunch and went to our room, our bags were waiting for us when we got there. Our ocean view room with a window was great, there was plenty of room for two. Our cabin boy Henery was wonderful. There was so much to do, we tried hard to get everything in.
The food was great, and being a manager over food I noticed a lot. They kept everything clean and were always cleaning, the food dept. and the grills were cleaned every nigh. My husband noticed the ship deck and rails and stairs were always being wiped down. He is a Captain on a tugboat so he was pleased to see this. The stops were alright, Cozumel was high priced. I would recommend going on tours not just shopping. Progresso had better shopping but it was a long way into town.
We are already looking into another cruise to bring the whole family. They kept the kids really busy and happy. Our waiter Roy was great and I enjoyed trying different food. We ate all the way to Mexico & back It was great. Our sail was very smooth I did not take anything for seasickness and did not get sick. I could feel every once in awhile a turn but for the most part it was great. They take pictures all the time, and they were great, an 8 by 10 is $19.99 I wanted to buy them all but I didn't. They took about 60 in all. Drinks were high priced so bring your own. It's the only way to take a vacation. Please email me if you have any questions. We also did not take our own luggage off and we were off before most that did. It looked like a mess and a long line with about an hour or two wait.
