Judy,
I am a cruiseaholic, having cruised on 18 Carnival ships over the last 5 years. I currently average 3-4 cruises a year and will be sailing on the Ecstacy on 11th June to Catalina and Ensenada. I have cruise aboard the Ecstacy before and she (although she is the first of the "Fantasy Class" ships that Carnival built) is a nice ship, outrageously loud in color and design, has great eateries (now with Carnival's Choice Dining which gives the most comprehensive dining array of options on the sea) and will now "rule" the seas for short cruises out of Los Angeles. I will be more than happy to provide you with some feedback upon my return to Australia (I live there and travel to the USA every 4-6 weeks for business and to cruise) - upon my return on 17th June 2001.
Keep an eye out for my report.Feel free to e-mail me direct.
Happy cruising.
Storm'n Norman

Dear Norman,

Thanks ever so much, I tried to email directly but, it wouldn't go through, something on AOL's End. Yes I will be very interested in hearing from you when you get back. Also, anymore info. you have on the Ectasy, I tried to get a video on it through Carnival, and they said they were discontinuing it, but, are redoing their other general videos for release in about a month. If you or anyone else reads this and knows of a good site to view cruise videos on please let me know.

Judy,

We just came back from the 3 day Ecstacy cruise. It was our family's 9th cruise and I must say that we have never had anything but good times on our cruises.
The Ecstacy is nearly 10 years old so it definately is not new. It has been well maintained so this was not at all a negative to us. But it is important that you know this going in. We had two cabins directly accross the hall from each other. One was a cat#12 and the other an inside cabin. The cabins were neat clean with good water pressure. Our cabin steward was always responsive to our needs, minor as they were. The food on Lido deck, buffet style was good not great. However the dining area itself was open and airy and I enjoyed the space very much. We ate breakfast and lunch there each day. Love there made to order omletes. We had dinner each night in the main dinning room. The food here was very good(the Lobster was only fair). There was a big show each night and various other entertainments throughout the ship. The casino was quite livey and my wife won major bucks there. Embark and disembark smooth as glass.

Hope this helps.

John
