This ship has one hell of a history... This is in addition to the fire I posted above.




After Hurricane Katrina, the ship spent six months in New Orleans serving as quarters for evacuees and relief workers. Now, the Ecstasy travels on four and five day itineraries throughout the Western Caribbean from Galveston, Texas.

On July 1, 2007, David Ritcheson, the victim of the April 22, 2006 Harris County, Texas assault incident, jumped off the MS Ecstasy and died.[3]


On 21 April 2010, at approximately 12.55 pm U.S. central time, the ship was forced to perform a maneuver to avoid an object in the water which resulted in the ship briefly listing to the port side. The object was a large buoy which was adrift and mostly submerged thereby preventing it from being detected by the ship's radar. The Carnival Ecstasy was on the final leg of a five-day cruise that departed Galveston on Saturday, April 17 with stops in Cozumel and Progreso, Mexico. According to a passenger, "The ship was shuddering. Just shake shake shake and that's when all the dishes were coming out. It was a mess, it looked like a food fight and that's when everybody jumped up screaming and running trying to get outside ... We thought we were going over. We really thought the whole ship was going to be tipped over ... They had to close down stores, all the glass went flying and it broke the glass on the outside of the liquor store. People were crawled all over everybody and screaming and it was horrible and we finally got out to hang on the side of the balcony railing because it was tipped so much, if you didn't, you'd be sliding back into the restaurant." Subsequent reports from Carnival Cruise Lines indicate 60 passengers were treated for minor injuries after the ship listed 12 degrees. From passenger reports of half the water being dumped from the pool, and the amount of damage to fixtures aboard ship, the approximate list is estimated to be between 25 and 30 degrees.

Yeah, that fried-chicken platter is a far cry from what you get on Royal Caribbean.


Is there a Waffle House on board?

Waffle House would be an improvement!


Seriously though, not all of the dining room entrees were awful, but none of them were "great." They were hit and miss at best. It's been loads of fun though... But kind of for all the wrong reasons! All the stories about the history of this ship are all reasons why we wanted to do it!


Respond to this thread to let us know you're loving the Klassy Kruise updates! The more you comment, the more pics we will post.

You know, this thread is reminding me of something . . .



Because Telly was such a Klassy Guy. He'd be the king of this ship within seconds! Women (or "broads," as he'd call them) would be at his feet, fulfilling his every desire. He'd snap his fingers and, POW, fried chicken and Bud Light for everyone!


Yes, everywhere from the Carnival Ecstacy to . . .



Duluth, it's all about Telly.

Thank You Robb for posting these updates at those outrageous internet prices. I was in class today and all i could do was keep refreshing my facebook page to see if you posted one more update. This is epic fun. This convinces me to stay as a RCCL lifer.

The pics are awesome! I had a few good laughs yesterday and again this morning already. The mascot frightens me though, almost as much as Golden Corral quality escargot and that lasagna...


Glad you guys are having an awesome time! Keep Klassy and keep the pics koming!

To be fair I didn't find my cruise on Carnival (Conquest) to be all that bad. The ship had nowhere near the amount of neon on board that you guys seem to have. With that said, in a month I'm going on Mariner of the Seas for a week, and I'm very interested to compare the two trips when all is said and done.


I've also been on Monarch of the Seas, however as that was only a 3 day cruise it is hard to compare it with a longer 7 day trip.
