New & Updated Features:
Carnival added Bonsai Sushi Express to the Carnival Ecstasy during this dry-dock. Bonsai Sushi Express serves a variety of sushi, sashimi, and rolls to cruisers that want to quickly get a bite to eat. This feature is not complimentary, which means guests do have to pay a little extra. Bonsai Sushi Express is located on the Carnival Ecstasy's Promenade Deck (Deck 9) across from the Crystal Palace Casino.
Another new feature is the Dreams Studio venue. The Dreams Studio is an area for private photography sessions with the ship's photographers. This studio is a part of the ship's Pixels Photo Gallery and Carnival sells photo packages for purchase. The Dreams Studio is located on the Carnival Ecstasy's Promenade Deck (Deck 9) on the same side of the ship as Club 02.
When Carnival added the Dreams Studio, this took the place of the ship's old arcade. The Carnival Ecstasy received a brand new arcade in dry-dock that is now located on the Promenade Deck (Deck 9) where the ship's old conference room was located.
Carnival typically uses dry-dock time to refresh carpet and tile on the ship. Carnival's press release said this dry-dock was used to replace tile, carpet, and furniture in areas where work was needed.
