Not happy with the Carnival Conquest

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2015

we had sailed carnival once before, then took two Norwegian Cruises. By far the Norwegian Cruises were better. The ship was in a bad state of repair, the food was not up to par, the entertainment...a commedian and a juggler is not what i call entertainment. one band doing the same old tired classic rock songs. As for the ports, I still an trying to figure out why Grand Turk was included, There is nothing there but sand....Dom Rep. from all the info I got about crime there we never left the port shopping area, Curacao, not impressed and the excursion was supposed to take us thru town for "photo ops" and being a photographer I looked forward to this, WE NEVER STOPPED AND NEVER WENT THRU THE CENTER OF TOWN!!! no photos...Aruba....we chose to go to a private  island with water park, snorkeling, beach, buffet and drinks included, and it was very expensive....such  sorry excuse for food there too..and the drinks..packaged punch with alcohol..good thing I am not really a drinker.  Water at the beach was all rock. No one even went in. the only bright spot was the water slides, 6 of them.

Great Cruise but Room for improvements

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2015

This is my 5th cruise on Carnival but my first on the Conquest.  I have been on the Valor and the Freedom and feel that Conquest needs some improvements.  We stayed in the Grand Suite and for that cost, they should have kept up on wear and tear items.  The bathroom had mold in the caulking around the bottom of the doors and rust coming from the shower attachments.  Also, the tub had numerous pits that made the tub appear unclean.  It's not so hard to reglaze the tub!  Shame on carnival.  The balconies also show major signs of age.  Dirty and rusty.  Also on previous cruises, I've always noticed staff constantly cleaning the rails, elevators and commons areas.  This is the first ship that I never noticed any cleaning being done, beside general vacumning and housekeeping.  Kind of surprised to see this.  Besides these issues, I loved the staff as usual.  I've never encountered a rude or staff member unwilling to help.  I love to interact with them and learn about their lives.  This ship's crew did not disappoint.  These minor issues won't deter me from Carnival but I would probably not spend the money on the Conquest but rather a different ship within their fleet.

Disappointing

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2015

Yes this ship was a little disappointing.  It must be an older ship, because some things were in need of repair.  Windows were filthy, and paint was peeling.  Food was mediocre.  I think Carnival is spending their money on the newer mega ships rather then keeping the rest of the fleet in shape. Most likely my last Carnival Cruise.

A Very Relaxing Experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 15, 2015

I highly recommend this cruise.  After standing in line for hours prior to embarkation, the actual cruise was absolutely delightful.  The mixed population was warm and friendly. The weather was hot, but most of the beaches were beautiful and accessible.  Most of the excursions offered by carnival were overpriced, so we chose to experience each island on our own.

Satisfactory

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 10, 2015

That fact that everything was able to be worked out at some point or another was a plus.  My concerns was the never given us an opportunity to practice with the  safety vest in case of an emergency.  The extra expense if you need to seek medical attention on board the ship,  Guest service lines were always to long and long waiting period. Not enough help with my special needs teenage son and I  this information was told before hand.  The cost of photo was over price.  AT the beginning of the cruise should have been give a list of all activity on board with information and a map of directions with times of events available.  No departing gifts for the cruise when leaving.

EXCELLENT HONEYMOON CRUISE

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 02, 2015

My partner and I of 25 years married on August 1st, we departed August 2nd on this cruise, never having sailed on Carnival before, we had minor reservations about how this cruise would end of being.  The entire Crew just blew away any doubt we had about this cruise being anything but excellent! 

To the Captain, officers, and crew of the Carnival Conquest - we extend our many thanks to you all.  This was an awesome cruise.  We had a blast.

We hope and plan on booking another cruise with Carnival real soon.

Hats off! Everyone did an excellent job!

Happy Sailing!

Carnival Conquest: 4 stops info and Carnival Perks and Non-Perks

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 02, 2015

We had a great cruise; good weather. We liked there were 2 days at sea right away. It really gave you a chance to unpack and fully relax before an island stop. St. Maarten:Mullet Beach was great. The shuttle van is just $2 per person; taxis were $9pp. Food/drinks at the local hut were reasonable as well ($5rum punch, $3 beers, $3 hotdog,$4 bergers). Antigua: Dickenson Beach ($3 taxi pp), 2chairs/umbrella $20; was nice. St. Thomas: Did a sail with Nightwind; only 15 people. Rick and Deb and the drinks/food were awesome! Nassau: Cabbage Beach ($4taxi pp) was crowded but if you walk way down to the right there was plenty of space. We like to use the casino on the ship as well. We noticed for the first time we actually acquired free drinks playing the table games! In the past, only the slots were able to acquire that benefit. Two things we didn't like that Carnival has changed: 1) They did away with their Past Passenger party in the show room with free drinks and snacks. They only gave us a coupon for a free drink after 5pm on the last night there.  2) We like to go to the trivia contests. Usually there's a winner after each one. This time, they collected points all week at all the trivia for a winner at the end. This wasn't fun because we might go to one while at sea, but I don't want to plan my days/vacation time around trivia! All-in-all a good trip! and the agents have been great to us!

Horrible experience with my 3 daughters

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Aug 02, 2015

Entertainments were really short, and not very impressive, pools are too small 4500 passengers, not enough activities for 4500 passengers, overall our experience was not good at all with the shooting in St. MARTEEN, OVERCROWDING by the pool area, and more

my family had a great experience on this trip. The ship and food were awesome. Some of the islands were beat from previous storms but the beaches are worth going to. We will be going on a cruise again. Happy

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!
