disappointed

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

I have been cruising on Carnival for 15 years.  It used to be an amazing experience, not only because of the destinations, but because of the service.  the last two cruises I have been on were nothing like that.  The staff just doesn't seem to care, they ignore you at best and are rude at worst.  I don't know what changed this.  The staff in the casino bar were exceptional, they didn't keep you waiting, they were friendly.  At the Cay island, owned by Carnival, people waited way too long for bar service and the starf were clearly overwhelmed.

On our first day off ship, the de-embarkation process was a nightmare.  Hundreds of us were held hostage in a stair well, waiting for a tender to shore.  We waited an hour before any staff even talked to us.  We didn't even know if we were in the right line in the right place.  People were hot and frustrated.  Finally a staff member said they were "waiting for a tender"  She didn't say how long, what the hold up was, nothing.  After another hour, people started shouting, "tell us what's going on>"  She finally said that people wanted to come back to the ship and that was holding them up.  It was raining.  Apparently they have never dealt with rain in the carribean or how to get people on and off the ship.  That used to work like clockwork.  We shouted for the Cruise Director or someone in charge to at least organize the mob and tell us what was going on.  The CD arrived and shouted from the bottom of the stairs where none of us could even see him and said "there's a hold up from people returning, you'll be off shortly."  and waked away.  No apology, no explanation, nothing.  Just didn't care.

 

I guess I can understand if quality of service just isn't a priority any more, but then the prices should go down accordingly.

Good time

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

The only thing bad about Carnival is they over charge for alcohol.  They automatically add 15% to all drinks for gratuity.   I feel it is my choice to tip a waiter or bartender with out being force to.  And when you go into the main dining room and order a $30 bottle of wine they charge a $10 corking fee to open the wine.  For $10 I can open my own wine.  Also watch you bill.  At the end of the cruise they will add $12 per day per person for gratuity. A total of $192 and if you are not watching it gets added and you have no say.  Had to wait in a long slow line to get it removed.  Most people don't check so they get charged.  Other than that nice time.

Great vacation

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

We had a blast. Most everything was wonderful. Only problem was the dining hall. It takes way too long to eat and our drinks (water, tea, lemonade, not alcohol) were rarely refilled.

"Fun Ahead"

I loved the Adult pool in the back of the ship.  It was very quiet and relaxing.

Everyone was very helpful and attentive too. We do it every year, and will continue to do it!!!

ist time Carnival cruiser

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

Good things: Food was superb. Not everyone agreed with me so I guess I made the right choices in the dining room. Liked the "other" choices like buffets, burritos, deli, and Guy Fieri's burgers. Rooms were adequate with fair amount of closet and draw space as well as space in bathrooms. Plenty of activities for sea days. Entertainment was great including the shows. Staff was great.

Not so good things: Ship departed 4 1/2 hours late due to baggage problems. Unusual long waits to re-board while in port as well as disembarking. It seemed to be very uncoordinated compared to other cruise lines I have been on.

Petty annoyance: Elevators were too far recessed into walls. When the arrival bell sounded it was difficult to see which one of six doors opened.

Anointing photo ataff.

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

Photo  gallery  staff was very anointing. They stressed  us out... we couldn't  enjoy  looking  at our photos..they were  in our face.  We spent  $500. In photos.  But was not satisfied  with  the  anointing  staff. We couldn't  view  our photos  without  them in our face.   Do  not  like the photo  staff  at all.  If we want  help we would  have asked. They made our vacation  bad

Great Cruise!

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

Had a great time on Conquest! Great shows! Great service! Great drinks! Be sure to visit the Alchemy Bar and ask Tijana to make you a drink! Be a regular there and get to know everyone! The historical lectures by Josh (the cruise director) were great! Really enjoyed the shows! The singers/dancers were awesome!!! Loved SixAppeal and the Hornets! Did some serious shopping! Peter, the ships shopping expert, was extremely helpful in helping us to find just the right jewelry for the best price! Thanks again Peter!!! The cruise was a much needed escape from reality!

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

Make sure you see Sumphat at lobby bar...she makes killer drinks!!!  I recommend Monkeyland in the Dominican Republic. .they were so cute.. for adults and kids!! I got off the ship and just picked up a tour in curacoa... only $20 and it was so worth it!! Beaches in aruba were beyond beautiful. . Calm waters no waves ... just gorgeous didn'twant to leave!!  Only downside to trip the boat had a lot of downtime... if your not gambling or laying out pool side... Not enough to do!  Ioved the trivia... but only had a couplea day!!

Very Enjoyable

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

One of the best things about the cruise was cruise director Josh Waitzman. He not only was everywhere with everyone, he conducted four outstanding historical lectures. Nice entertainment in the Lobby Bar with #SixAppeal and Hornets. Servers were very good and food was good. The ship is old but intimate and clean. A  negative was the smell of smoke on the 5th deck where the casino is located. Several other entertainment area are affected; a lecture was held during the day in a "non-smoking" bar (Blues Lounge)  and it was gross. Overall a great vacation with Carnival Cruise Lines.

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!
