My first cruise was the Carnival Ecstacy. My parents had found the love of cruising and wanted to share it with us. My father said that at least once, he wanted to treat the whole family to such a wonderful cruise. He passed away a few years later, and this was our last family trip.
I remember being awed by the Ecstasy. At the time, she was one of the largest ships afloat. I loved everything about cruising. After meeting my DH, I was so excited to introduce him to cruising.
