Carnival Ecstasy (formerly Ecstasy) is a Fantasy-class cruise ship operated by Carnival Cruise Line. Built by Kværner Masa-Yards at its Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland, she was floated out on January 6, 1991, and christened Ecstasy by television hostess, entertainer and long time Carnival spokesperson Kathie Lee Gifford. Her inaugural voyage began on April 2, 1991. During 2007, in common with all of her Fantasy-class sisters, she had the prefix Carnival added to her name. With the departure of the Carnival Fantasy in 2020, the Carnival Ecstasy is now the oldest ship in the fleet. It was soon after announced by Carnival Cruise Line that the Ecstasy would leave the fleet in October with her sister ship Sensation, and would be replaced by the Carnival Spirit out of Mobile Alabama.

Areas of operation

Throughout her service Carnival Ecstasy has cruised from ports in the United States to Baja Mexico, the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

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

Starting in May 2019, the ship cruised from Jacksonville, FL's JAXPORT Cruise Terminal to visit the Bahamas and Eastern Caribbean.

In February 2022 Carnival announced that due to uncertain times in the Australian cruise industry, Spirit would re-home from Sydney to Jacksonville, Florida. Carnival Ecstacy would move from Jacksonville to Mobile, Alabama. Carnival Sensation, which was slated to head to Mobile has been delayed.

Refits

In January, 2017, the ship underwent a 2 week dry dock, at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport, Bahamas. The ship underwent another 2 week dry dock in October, 2019, adding more venues and providing maintenance. The work was done again at Freeport, Bahamas.

Final Season

In February 2022, it was announced that Carnival would retire Carnival Ecstasy as well as Carnival Sensation from the fleet. Sensation would not return to service, where as Ecstasy will return to service in Mobile, Alabama from March until October 2022 and then would be retired after that point. This will make Carnival Ecstasy the only ship from the now six retired Fantasy class ships to offer guests a farewell cruise season.
