Great family fun

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jul 27, 2014

This was the first cruise and a great one for our 2 teenage boys.  The 4 ports of call was enough to keep them excited and busy snorkeling and diving.  We actually bonded at the dinner table every night and during the big screen movies on the lido deck.  They can't wait for the next cruise

Carnival Conquest 7 Day Cruise Feedbback

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 08, 2014

The cruise was just "ok" .  This was my first 7 day cruise and by the 6th day I was ready to come back home.  Our room was clean when we arrived to our satisfaction.  I could tell they didnt clean the bathroom with cleanser or vaccum everyday because but i could see a ring forming in the toilet and crumbs on the floor.  Our person who made our beds everyday was great and knew everyone's name on the floor...totally empressive!  Make sure you tip those guys!  Our bed was hard as a rock but once I asked the guy what could be done, he found some type of pad to put on the bed to make it a bit softer.

The first 3 days the food was good and it went downhill from there.  I do understand that they must rotate the food but it was a bit much.

I really enjoyed the private island Half Moon Cay, the beach was wonderful and food was good.  In St. Thomas make sure you ask for Mr. King to take you around the island on a private tour.  We learned and saw a great deal of St Thomas without paying for one of those excursions.  San Juan was ok.  Grand Turk was a blast especiall at Margaritaville at the pool bar....awesome time.  I didnt understand why our time there was so short and I would have like to have spend more time docked there.

Our dinner waiter was excellent. Service with smile and never complained even when were were complaining about the food.  Make sure you tip them as well.

Overall the ship itself was nice and had some really good activities planned on the ship for everyone to enjoy.  All of the comedians in the comdey show were funny which is must go see if you are on the cruise ship.

Week at Paradise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jul 20, 2014

We had a wonderful time on the Conquest.  We have been on 19 Carnival Cruises and we have had no complaints with any ship.  The weather was perfect which helps.  We always try to go the Eastern Caribbean.  We've been on so many that when we get to some of the ports we will stop in at some of the bars because we have met the owners & they remember us.  The crew is excellent!  Still can't figure out how they can remember all of our names.  We even saw some of the crew members from out last cruise & they remembered us!

didn't like it

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2014

I haven't been on a Carnival cruise in about 5 years, I must say the quality has dropped quite a bit. Food was a disappointment a lot of the meals. The ship was totally overcrowded, couldn't move. Try to find a table to eat, can't. Try to find chairs to sit on by the pool, walk around for an hour. Go in the pool? forget it was packed 24 hrs a day as was the jacuzzi's with kids, all day all night. And when tired of dealing with tons of people and cigarette smoke all over, go to the room to rest and kids are running up and down the hallway screaming and yelling. Will definetely not do a carnival again. Even the shows were short, and relied on blinking background and not a lot of talent. The only redeeming night was Eddie Capone, the comedian, I laughed hysterically. He was fantastic. Overall, was disappointed and will wait till I can afford a really great cruise on a better line!

Popular Tips for Carnival Conquest


LOTS of kids on board during the summer months. Wait till school is in for a more relaxed trip

During days 'at sea' check out afternoon Tea time at Monet Restaurant.

If you do not want to be rushed during dinner, take a late one and at the same time get to know a little more of your servers. As the evening dies down, they have more time to answer any questions you may have, out of the ordinary "what's in this meal"? and learn a little-bit about their culture.
