DISAPPOINTMENT

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

Disappointing.  After cruising on this ship I am uncertain as to whether I will ever cruise again..CryingSadSadSad  The entertainment and the dining experience are supposed to be two of the highlights of cruising,,Both were way below expectations on this cruise.

The dining staff and service staff were commendable but one gets the feeling that as hard as they work, the company is expecting them to do more with less.

According to ship policy if pool chairs are left unattended for more than 4o minutes towels will be removed..this certainly is not enforced and people have a sense of entitlement because they know they can get away with tagging a chair at 6a.m. and then going about their business and leaving THEIR "toweled chaIr"

empty and other people wandering around with no place to sit...Why have a policy if not enforced?????

Conquest

Dated ship, ship schedule for safety briefing and entertainment rarely on time, vulgar music playing in the gym. Our table always served last for dinner, resulting in us never finishing until 8 p.m.

Carnival conquest

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

Ship was ok...a lot of older people,which I'm not used to on a carnival cruise! The fun shops were closed for renovation!!!! Our waiter was nice but definately did not have much interaction with us or make dinners memorable!! No chocolates left at night, also no little complimentary items in bathroom and since fun shops closed,could not purchase any necessary items if needed!! Aruba beautiful!! Had some excellent and fun bartenders!! Not my favorite cruise ship but was fun!

Horrible comedian

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

Food was fairly good, entertainment was ok,  The comedian azeem was the most despicable person have ever seen.He made half of his act out of making fun of overweight people in the audience, people in power chairs, and white people that apparently have small genitalia compared to his.  I would hope he never makes it on a ship again or for that matter every on a stage again.I was disgusted by his act and so were others in the room. 

Overall an ok cruise, but the locations that we stopped on were beautiful.Aruba, curasau, grand Turk.

Great experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

Ship and staff were great. Spacious, well maintained state room. Food at buffet a little disappointing but plenty of choices. Dinner at the restaurant was very good.  Entertainment was very good. Weather was cooler than usual but we missed the snow in NY!  Definitely would do it again😀

Food Dissapointing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

Stay away from the buffets and go to the dining rooms or Guys.  Breakfast buffets were dismal, scrambled eggs were gross.  Dining rooms were excellent.

OK Cruise for the price.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

This was an enjoyable cruise.  The ship (Conquest) is HUGE, therefore LOTS of people, a downer to me.  Surprisingly, many KIDS on a mid January cruise.  This was my fourth cruise and least impressive. The "Conquest" has a confusing layout. By the time I got familiar with the ship, it was time to leave.  SOME staff members were less friendly than on other cruises; and with more members that did not speak English.  Food was good, but not great.  NOTHING is more frustrating to morning coffee drinkers than to have to beg for coffee. You would think Cruise Lines would know that!!  COME ON !  It was an inexpensive cruise.  You get what you pay for.

First Cruise -- Delightful Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

This was our first cruise and we didn't know exactly what to expect.  We join a group of 14 to share this experience.  We were pleasantly surprised at how well we were able to adapt due to the help and friendliness of the crew and staff.  We enjoyed the food and beverages.  The Blue Piano Bar was a great place to enjoy evening entertainment and a nitecap.  Due to the great experience, we would cruise again.,

Rating our cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

My husband & I enjoyed our first experience with Carnival Lines.  The menus in the dining room were good as was the selections at the buffet on Lido deck.  A little disappointed in the weather.  But we still enjoyed our tours and dressed appropriately.  YummyHappy

Love cruising with Carnival

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date:

For the most part I enjoy cruising with Carnival.  This is the 3rd time I've traveled on the Conquest and have a few suggestions.  The burrito bar sounded like such a great idea but why in the world wouldn't you include nacho chips as a choice.  We loved that Freedom offered Nacho chips with different fixings.  The conquest has a burrito bar so why wouldn't you have Nacho's so I have something to dip into the side fixins. I play in the casino a lot and each trip the casino usually sends up a treat of some kind to my stateroom.  Last time we received chocolate covered strawberryies but this time I received the ugliest plate with things that looked stale.  No thought was put in, all they did was throw some tiny treats on a plate.  I would rather not receive anything instead of receiving that.  I also don't like that when I travel I play a lot in the casino, but I'm only offered very few cruise discounts.  This past trip I did not receive any comps with the exception of free drinks.  I don't drink so it wasn't something that really interests me.  You should offer other comps.  I was disappointed that your hosts don't seek out the players who earn over 4000 points to make sure everything is going well.  The room attendant was great and made us feel welcomed.

I forgot one last tour we took. It was the 'Behind the Scene's' tour. Awesome, awesome, awesome! This was worth the price we paid. We got to see where the crew goes & how they live, how the ship runs, where the food is prepared and met the Captain. This is a must do tour!
