HEY We will be on her the 18th thru the 23rd, so we will take good care of her for ya. We have been to Progreso before not alot to do didn't see anyone or hear of anyone doing the Dolphin booking. About the only things to do is Corona beach for 35.00 all the booze you can drink and a clean beach, water isn't very clear but you get the best deals there. Flea market 2 blocks away had some great deals and you can bargin about the price with them. We never book thru thru the cruise line because it costs so much more, but if you are going on a long trip like to the ruins you might want to consider the extra cost thru the cruise line because if something happens, like your bus breaks down, and you are on a scheduled excursion thru the cruise line they will hold the ship up for you until you return. We havent been to Chankanaab but have been to Mr. Sanchez beach it was nice and Playa Mia, all inclusive for 42.00 person, hope this helps a little. We are taking all three of our grown son's with us this time there in there 20's and all they can talk about is party,party,party, guess were going to have to just let them be. You should get to see the ship dressed up for Christmas, they usually start dressing her up the day after Thanksgiving.

Hi fellow cruisers,
My mom and I are going on the Ecstacy's Thanksgiving cruise out of Galveston. Is anyone else going? Has anyone been on this Thanksgiving cruise before? Also, does the Esctacy usually draw in a younger crowd? I say "Thanksgiving" becuase it leaves on the 23rd. I have been on the Carnival Pride last December and I loved it but I am not quite sure what to expect on this cruise. In the event that our port gets re-routed, does anyone know of any dolphin swimming in Progreso? I am about to reserve a spot to swim with the dolphins in Cozumel through a private excursion company instead of booking through Carnival. Has anyone done that before? I am booking the Swim Adventure through the Dolphin Discovery Center at Chankanaab National Park because it is cheaper and there is more interaction with the dolphins. Has anyone been to this park before and have any suggestions/comments? Has anyone been on this excursion? Or does anyone have any experience booking excursions through a private company vs. the cruise line? I guess I have a lot of questions
So far I have found this website to be very helpful and I would appreciate any feedback.
My mother and I also went on the Mediterranean Cruise through Norwegian this past July and it was fabulous.
