A Food Lover’s Review

Marlyn Monette, a food writer for “The Shreveport Times”, just published a review of her recent cruise experience on the Carnival Ecstasy. She includes detailed descriptions of her dining experience and is kind enough to share some recipes from Executive Chef Alwyn Coelho.

Planning a family cruise?  Check out a recent article in the “Philadelphia Inquirer” that highlights all you need to know from getting the best rooms on board to making a family checklist before the cruise.

That’s roughly six times what we carried a decade ago.”  Read the entire article here.
