newbie here...have a couple of questions to ask-sailing in late april & would like to know how did you book your excursions. and is this ship a pretty good one? i've previously sailed on the conquest and had a great time. thanks for any info you can provide. gg
The Ecstasy is smaller than the Conquest. The Esctasy is a Fantasy class ship at 70,000 ton. The Conquest 110,000. The Ecstasy came out in 1991. It was refurbished last year after the FEMA contract. I think all the Fantasy size ships are nice ships, not to big and not to small. You can reserve your shore excursions online or once you get onboard. They will have port talks to explain the excursions and which ones they recommend.
We sailed the Western Caribbean route on the Ecstasy in April of 2001. We had no complaints and thought it was a nice ship. It was larger than our previous cruise (Jubilee) so it was a 'step up' so to speak and had a few more public areas than the smaller ship.
This May we are taking the eastern route on the Glory. Again, one of the reasons is to experience a different class/size ship.
