Okay here's the deal -- I'm cruising on Carnival Ecstasy on an all girls cruise but, to be honest, the Carnival Ecstasy wouldn't be my first choice for a ship. This was organized by girls about 10 years younger than me, and most have NEVER traveled before. I travel a lot and have pretty high-end tastes -- BOTTOM LINE: Which stateroom is the best (not necessarily the most expensive, but it can be) and what deck? Also, as quiet as possible would be great....have never cruised Carnival before. This is a surprise for a former roomate of mine, and she has pretty high tastes also..
I've heard a lot about the concerns of cleanliness, sewage smells, etc of the ship, and if some of the rooms have been renovated (and smell better!) -- I want those !! Traveling 2010 in October, Cozumel --
