small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jul 12, 2015

Here's a list of the cruise lines I've traveled in until today rating from best to worst :

Royal Caribbean

Norwegian

Holland America 

And dead last Carnival . beside the employees and the cabin everything else was cheap , or poor quality , the ship was kinda odd to find your way around 

The food wasn't as expected ,except in a few cases , room service not enough choices , I ordered two Coca Colas at the casino , I said without ice so they brought me two cans ( Never in my life I have been served a soda in an establishment like that in a can ) .

The Tv choices in the cabin sucked , signal died often .

Enjoyed our anniversary cruise!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jul 12, 2015

We celebrated our 35th anniversary on the Carnival Conquest last week.  Since we took a Carnival Caribbean cruise for our honeymoon it seemed like a good idea and it was!  The ship was nice, the food was great, we enjoyed the on-board entertainment, and the staff catered to our needs.  The ports: Grand Turk, La Romana, D.R., Curacao and Aruba all had beautiful beaches with the sparkling turquoise water and white sand we love.  Grand Turk's beach is conveniently located right by the cruise port--loved that!  The town of La Romana is a little sketchy and unfortunately difficult to shop because the vendors push so hard.  I would have liked to help them out, but I just can't shop under that much pressure.  The architecture and landscape on Curacao and Aruba were so unique.  I just loved them and want to go back.

Awesome Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2015

We loved the boat, the crew and the destinations. The food was superb and our waiter even arranged a special Indian cuisine for our family the last night of the cruise. the boat was remarkably clean even on the last day of the trip.

Great extended family get together, beautiful islands

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jul 04, 2015

This cruise was great for our family of 15 get together and vacation.  The day could be spent with a small or large part of the group, then we would all gather for dinner every evening in the Monet dining room.  Muda was the best waiter!  Relaxing and fun. Good evening entertainment for all ages. Grand Turk was our favorite island visit, although we loved them all.

Had fun in Jamaica

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 29, 2015

We enjoyed our cruise very much. The staff was great. All were very friendly and helpful. 

PROS: We booked our excursions early so we didn't have to stand in line at Guest services.

Won $500 in the casino

CONS: We set up the expense account online but you still have to set it up in person within 24 hours on the ship.

The ship was warm all over. The only cool (cold) place was the comedy club. Our cabin was warm. A couple even bought a fan for their cabin while out on their excursion.

Carnival Queue Line

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2015

Too many people on board. Too congested. Too many line ups. It started with registration. We received an email telling us that our registration time was between 12-1pm, and that if we did not arrive during this time that we may be subjected to a long wait. We arrived at 12 and faced a huge line up out the door and wrapping around the back of the building. We i asked a Carnival representative about our 12 time, he said "no body follows that, i dont know why they send those emails out"!?  We were over 2 hours before we got to the gangway, a good portion of that time standing in the hot sun outside.

this was the first of many line ups. 20 minutes to get breakfast or lunch. A 30 minute wait to get a buzzer for dinner reservation and then another 40 minute wait for our table (2 people).

Breakfast and lunch on the Lido deck was just pure mayhem! First search for a table, next line up. 20 minutes minimum.  

The employees work hard to provide service, but there are just too many people on board with over 1000 children. This ship was not designed for every room to have extra passengers sleeping on the pull out. 

The other issue is the bar prices. You cannot bring any alcohol on board and the prices are extremely high. They have a monopoly

This will be our last cruise with Carnival.

Great Ports

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2015

The main reason I chose this itinerary was for the port of calls which I enjoyed.   As for the ship it needs to be revamped.  It is dated and repairs need to be done, rust, wood pool area, carpets...

Our experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2015

we waited 4 hours to board the ship and left port 2 hours late. The staff was very friendly and the only complaint about being on board was when boarding back on from the excursions food was shut down with the exception of pizza and tacos shock no matter what you chose you were waiting nothing less then 45 minutes to get food. Otherwise we had a great time and made memories that we will remember forever

Some Good - Some BAD

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Conquest | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2015

I was not happy with the Cruises only agents communication since I could never get directly in touch with her despite several calls with problems. The ships windows were so dirty we could barely see out of our cabin window and lots of the others hadn't been washed for whats seemed to bee weeks. Signing in for boarding was a nightmare that took over an hour in a line in 90 degree heat and then another wait to be called and allowed to board which I believe was only done to allow boarding pictures to be taken without missing too many opportunities. The drill was another hour fiasco in the heat since only stations were assigned and not lifeboats which meant they had no idea who may have been missing since there was no room roll call. Had assigned stations and lifeboats been given on the ships card they could have easily known who was missing from that boat.  The island were nice but mostly barren of the regular Caribbean GREENERY since they get a lot less rain the many others. My top 2 were Curacao and Aruba since they had a lot more color then the others but Turks had the bluest waters in multi colors and was probably the best for beach going. We took 2 tours of the Islands,one each on Turks and Aruba - Turks was ok , but the ARUBA ONE with Clifford as the guide was OUTSTANDING as he answered every question we had and it showed he enjoyed his job and was EXTREMELY proud of his island heritage. The staff in the Casino and main dining room was EXCELLENT as was the food, WHEN THEY HAD it OPEN. The buffet's closed @2:00 P.M.  but the Pirate Pizza was open 24/7. The fish and chips was closed MORE TIME then open ( like 12:00 to 2:00 . Guy's burgers were also really good.  We never even met our cabin steward until the last day saying goodbye....unlike other cruises where they stop in and introduce themselves and say hi etc. Getting off the ship was easy and timely so there was no problem there.

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!

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