Default Ecstasy woes

Hello everyone,

It seems the ship we are scheduled to sail May 2 is having yet another glitch.

I have been wondering......would it be so cost prohibitive to maybe have 1 full day between sailings so that a full system inspection could be done on each ship, regardless of company?

Or is this already policy and I am just ignorant of it?

Maybe it just seems like its always CCL. I am sure the other lines have their problems too. Do other lines have a day or so between sailings?

Things that make you go hmmmmm ya know? !

Most cruiselines will end one cruise and begin the next on the same day. This is more cost effective, because the longer a ship is in port, the higher their dockage fees will be. Also, if there are no passengers onboard there's no one to spend money! In any case, it's not just Carnival.

Re: "In any case, it's not just Carnival."
Yes , as I said "regardless of company" and "I am sure the other lines have their problems too."

News this morning in Houston re: Ecstasy....the ship is in Progresso awaiting an engineer and parts to make repairs.

Guests on the Ecstasy are being offered a 25% refund and 25% discount on future cruise.

We are NOT changing our plans to sail Ecstasy May 2. We are sure CCL will get this fixed and all will be fine.

I do reiterate that perhaps there should be a 1 day "stand down" of ships so that they can be given a thorough inspection. This could not only be for mechanical but health as well. We all recall the Norwalk like sicknesses of the past.
