Carnival Ecstasy has the experience under her belt to ensure that you have an amazing cruise- and at over 850 feet long, that would be some belt! That’s not all she has, either. Your first impression as you board is the grand atrium, whose bright lights will remind you of the big city. With great fun for the kids, including a range of supervised youth activities for cruisers aged 2 to 17, as well as bars, a casino and a relaxing spa for the adults, you’re on a ship that caters perfectly for each and every guest.
No matter your age and interests, there's a reason for everyone to be ecstatic about a cruise aboard the Carnival's Ship, Carnival Ecstasy.
Chances are you've worked up an appetite after a day of action-packed onboard activities or exploring one of the beautiful destinations. Now it’s time to feast on amazing culinary delights in one of the dazzling main dining rooms. If you'd rather eat early (6:00 p.m.), choose the “Early Dining” option when booking your cruise. If your appetite doesn’t get going until later in the evening (8:15 p.m.), then the “Late Dining” option is perfect for you. Prefer to munch to the beat of your own drum? “Your Time Dining” is for you! Either way, your table will be waiting with a meal that’s out of this world.
If you like your meals low-key, you’re in luck, as there are plenty of casual options perfect for all the family, and included in your cruise fare.
For anyone willing to spend a little more on mealtime, there are some other great options. Bonsai Sushi Express serves freshly made sushi just how you like it, while The Chef’s Table is a more exclusive and intimate experience, ideal if you are a real foodie or want to celebrate a special occasion onboard.
You’ve played Connect 4 and Yahtzee, but have you ever played giant versions of them onstage in a competition that puts your gaming skills to the test? You’ll have your chance when you take part in Hasbro, The Game Show. From Sorry! Sliders to Yahtzee Bowling, Connect 4 Basketball, Operation Sam Dunk and Simon Flash, you can team up with your friends and family to win great prizes, all in front of a live audience.
If you want to continue with the live entertainment, Playlist Productions takes tunes you know and puts them live on stage at the main theatre, transforming them into full blown musical productions featuring pro singers and dancers rocking the house. Enjoy the sensual sounds of Latin Nights, or the know-them-anywhere favourites of Divas.
However, an evening onboard Carnival Ecstasy doesn’t have to be all about the live shows. If you’re idea of a perfect night is relaxing in a bar, there are plenty to choose from:
If you love staying active then Carnival Ecstasy is packed with fun and games to keep that competitive spirit charged up all cruise long. Challenge a fellow cruiser to a round at our mini-golf course, or while away the hours with a few rounds of ping-pong. There’s even our ship-top jogging track featuring some of the best views around. Meanwhile, it wouldn’t be a dream vacation without a little ""me time,"" and where better to have this than at Serenity. It’s an adult only area available to guests 21 and older and features everything necessary to create the perfect tranquil ""getaway within your getaway."" Take advantage of complete bar service provided by attentive waiters, chill in the sun under one of the colorful, oversized umbrellas or in the separate shaded area, and enjoy a dip in one of the whirlpools looking out over the great blue sea, all while listening to mellow music to keep the vibe sweet and serene.
Channel your inner rock king, pop princess or disco queen, and join in the fun at SuperStar Live Karaoke. You don’t just pick the song you want to sing — you perform it backed by a live band playing electric guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and, yes, even your own back-up singers. To show off your skills, you just need to sign-up with the on-site host in the designated SuperStar Karaoke lounge on board. You can choose from hundreds of titles that span a wide variety of genres, from Motown, country and rock classics to today’s pop hits.
When it comes to relaxation from the inside out, nothing beats a trip to the spa. From the minute you step inside, the soothing ambiance begins to work its magic. Renew yourself with premium beauty and wellness therapies, like hot stone massages, aromatherapy or full-body wraps- after all, this is your time to be spoiled, indulged and beautified! Lay back, close your eyes, and feel the stress sail away as your body and mind experience total tranquility. In addition, the European-style salon is staffed with trained professionals who specialise in pampering you and bringing out all your best features. Whether it’s a glamorous updo for the evening or just a great cut, new color or deep conditioning for your hair and scalp, the friendly staff are here to make it happen.
Alternatively, if you want to stay fit on your holiday, Spa Carnival’s fully equipped fitness centre is here to help. Go for a jog, lift some weights, or use our state-of-the-art equipment to work up a sweat and get stronger. If it’s heart-pumping cardio classes you’re after, try indoor cycling, aerobics or cardio circuit training.
