First Cruise

without comments

This past week we took our first five day cruise from Galveston, TX to Cozumel and Chichen Mexico on Carnival’s Ecstasy.

All in all I was happy with the trip and would gladly do it again. Since we live close to Galveston we can pick up last minute fares pretty cheap.

We spent a day at sea, a day at Cozumel, a day at Chichen and a day at sea.

The food in the main dining is very good but you have to put on real clothing to use the main dining room. The come-as-you are food was about what you’d find in any fast food chain and not so good.

The gym was well equipped, but running on a treadmill while the ship is rocking is a challenge even in calm waters. So I only managed one run.

There is a spa on the ship, shops, clubs and plenty to do. I was curled up with a book most of the time. The back decks are quiet and sheltered from the wind and a good place to have coffee and read.

We had a balcony with our cabin, but when you aren’t in port the wind on the balcony makes it unusable.

I wish I’d brought more clothing, especially warmer clothing and jeans. Galveston’s chilly this time of year and indoors everywhere the a/c was on high. It turns out you can wear blue jeans in the main dining hall now.

I’d’ve brought more Dramamine too, I went through two containers. Turns out that sea-sick pills are available at the information desk and that’s a very good thing or I’d not have survived our last night out at sea.
