Carnival to pay commission on future cruise credits

Multi-million-dollar dining and beverage concepts debut on Carnival Ecstasy

MIAMI – The Carnival Ecstasy has gotten a major upgrade, having undergone a multi-million-dollar renovation that has added new dining and beverage options.

The upgrades were incorporated during a two-week dry dock from Jan. 10-24 in The Bahamas. It then returned to Charleston, South Carolina to resume its year-round schedule of four- to 10-day departures from that port.

New enhancements include Guy’s Burger Joint, a free-of-charge poolside venue developed in partnership with celebrity chef Guy Fieri, and BlueIguana Cantina, a complimentary Mexican eatery. Also new are Alchemy Bar, a ‘cocktail pharmacy’-themed lounge with mixologists, and Cherry On Top, which serves bins of bulk candy and fanciful gifts.

Along with the recent additions, guests can also find a variety of onboard features, such as the poolside Red Frog Rum Bar and Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, a Water Works aqua park, a Serenity adults-only retreat and Spa Carnival health and wellness facility.

Carnival Ecstasy’s schedule runs year round from four- to seven day cruises to destinations throughout The Bahamas and Caribbean. The ship will also operate a 10-day Carnival Journeys Caribbean voyage round trip from Charleston Nov. 5 to 15, 2017. Visit
