Ports of call

Carnival Ecstasy offers four- to seven-day cruises to the Bahamas, Bermuda and Eastern Caribbean out of Charleston, South Carolina. Cruises depart Charleston varying days of the week, depending on the itinerary booked. The four-day Bahamas cruises stop at Nassau, Bahamas, while the Bahamas five-day cruises stop at Nassau and either Freeport, Bahamas or Carnival's private Half Moon Cay (Little San Salvador Island) Six-day Bahamas Cruises stop at Nassau, Freeport and Half Moon Cay. Seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruises offer varied itineraries that may include Nassau, Grand Turk Island and Amber Cove of Puerto Plata (province) in the Dominican Republic, and Half Moon Cay. One seven-day cruise to Bermuda from Charleston is scheduled in 2016. The cruise departs Saturday, November 5 and includes two days at sea to Bermuda, two nights at port in Bermuda and departs Bermuda at noon for 1 1/2 days at sea returning to Charleston.

Carnival Ecstasy replaced the Carnival Fantasy in Charleston, South Carolina in 2016 when Fantasy was relocated to Miami, Florida where it offers three- to eight-day cruises to the Bahamas and Caribbean.

After Hurricane Katrina, the ship spent six months in New Orleans serving as quarters for evacuees and relief workers.

Carnival Ecstasy will move to Jacksonville, Florida in May 2019, being replaced year round by Carnival Sunshine in Charleston. Carnival Elation will be moved to Port Canaveral, Florida.

Evolutions of Fun and Fun Ship 2.0

Ecstasy has undergone two major refurbishments. The first, begun in 2007 and completed in 2009, was part of Carnival's Evolutions of Fun program. The ship's name was changed to Carnival Ecstasy, all staterooms were refurbished, and a mini golf course was added. Children's facilities were improved and adult-only "Serenity" decks were added. The second refit, in 2014, was part of the Fun Ship 2.0 program. It added the Red Frog Rum Bar, Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, Hasbro: The Game Show, Playlist Productions (Scenic), and The Punchliner Comedy Club Presented by George Lopez. The third refit, in 2017, was also part of the "Fun Ship 2.0" program. It added, Guy's Burger Joint, Blue Iguana Cantina, Cherry On Top, Alchemy Bar, and Crew Area Renovations.
