Carnival Ecstasy

Resort-style amenities and an exciting array of stunning public rooms

Carnival Cruise Lines’ 70,000-ton Carnival Ecstasy offers a host of “resort-style” amenities and an exciting array of stunning public rooms and facilities, each with a character all its own.

It has undergone various refits and refurbishments since it launch to keep up with the demands of modern-day cruising.

Ecstasy underwent an extensive refurbishment in the Fall of 2009 during a 28-day dry dock, continuing a series of major upgrades to the line’s eight Fantasy-class vessels.

A host of new facilities and features were added, including an expansive WaterWorks aqua park with a 300ft spiral water slide, a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, and a Serenity adults-only retreat. Ninety-eight balconies were added to existing staterooms, as well.

These features complement the ship’s wide range of on-board amenities such as a renovated 12,000sq-ft Spa Carnival health club, three restaurants, complimentary programs for children in three age groups, a 24-hour pizzeria, a jogging track, and 12 lounges, bars and nightspots.

A multi-million-dollar renovation in January 2017 added a variety of new dining and beverage innovations. The features were incorporated during a two-week dry dock that took place in Freeport, The Bahamas.

They included:

  • Guy’s Burger Joint, a free-of-charge poolside venue developed in partnership with Food Network personality Guy Fieri serving hand-crafted burgers and fresh-cut fries enjoyed amidst a décor that celebrates the chef’s California roots and love of car culture
  • BlueIguana Cantina, a complimentary poolside Mexican eatery where guests can enjoy authentic, freshly made burritos and tacos on homemade tortillas, as well as an elaborate toppings and salsa bar
  • Alchemy Bar, a “cocktail pharmacy”-themed lounge with mixologists who “prescribe” concoctions from different elixirs and ingredients with creative monikers like Forty is the New Twenty and The Restorative Basil Drop
  • Cherry On Top, the “sweetest spot on board” which celebrates the joys of simple indulgences with bins of bulk candy, fun fanciful gifts and novelties, custom apparel and more

  • The new spaces complement a wide range of on-board features, including the poolside RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar, a massive WaterWorks aqua park, a Serenity adults-only retreat, and a luxurious Spa Carnival health and wellness facility.

    Following the renovation, Carnival Ecstasy returned to Charleston to resume its year-round four- to seven-day cruises visiting popular destinations throughout The Bahamas and Caribbean.
