Carnival Ecstasy has several different stateroom categories ranging from spacious suites to money-saving inside cabins. The showers have dispensers with shampoo and shower gel and bars of soap are provided. Beds in most staterooms can be set apart as twins or together as one bed. The ship has a couple launderettes which come in handy for anyone with clothes they want to wash, dry, or iron. Some cabins are wheelchair accessible with wider doors and lower placement of things people need to reach like the mailbox and clothesline.
Suites are larger than other cabins and come with VIP check-in.
Grand Suites are the biggest staterooms on board. Some have extended balconies. Some grand suites are available with connecting rooms or space to sleep 5. There is even a wheelchair accessible grand suite in room #U69.
Junior suites sleep up to 3 people. These suites have balconies and more interior space than regular staterooms. Some have obstructed views from the balcony, which means a lower price for the room.
Balcony staterooms have glass doors out onto a veranda for a sea view and a bit of private outdoor space.
Aft View Extended Balcony cabins sleep up to 3 people. These rooms across the stern of the ship offer a view of the wake and of where the ship has been from their extra-large balconies. Balcony cabins each have a private veranda. Some balcony cabins sleep up to 4 people. Some have connecting rooms or accessible features.
Ocean View Cabins
Ocean view staterooms have picture windows for a view of the sea. Some sleep up to 5 guests. For bigger families some have connecting doors to the next room. These doors remain locked unless the same party has booked both rooms and wants to have passage between them. You can also find wheelchair accessible rooms in the ocean view category.
Inside cabins are the most affordable accommodations on the ship. Many people book them for the cost savings, but some book them for the convenience of darkness for sleeping at any time of day.
Porthole cabins book as interior, but have two portholes to provide daylight in the room and a bit of a view giving guests the advantage of the economy of an inside room while still having small windows. These fully functional portholes have covers which the stewards can close in stormy weather. Although many of the porthole cabins are as big or bigger than ocean view cabins they sleep just two guests.
Interior Staterooms sleep anywhere from 2 to 5 guests. Some inside rooms have connecting cabins and some are wheelchair accessible.
Interior Upper/Lower staterooms are the smallest and most economical rooms on the ship. These cabins are great for singles and can sleep up to 2 people. These rooms have one twin bed and either a fold-down bunk or sofa bed.
The majority of passengers sail two to a cabin, but sometimes more people share the same space. Many cabins only hold two people, but some have bunks and/or trundle beds or couches that convert to beds. Some of the Ecstasy’s cabins hold up to 5 people with two bunks and a trundle bed. If you are traveling with just two people look for a room that only holds two. The bunks on the Ecstasy are in a bulky wooden frame along the wall rather than dropping from the ceiling as they do on newer ships so if you don’t need them they are just taking up space in the room.
While there are no permanent beds for babies in any cabin, the ship is equipped with portable cribs that can be set up in a cabin as needed for very young cruisers.
