April 2015 - 8 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest
My cruise was predictable and ok, but it was ruined by Carnival in a sense. I traveled with my parents-- one of whom is in a wheelchair. Carnival promised me that their room would be fully accessible and would allow my father to access the balcony. But it was not-- and he could not venture out there. Also, the accessible rooms are in the FRONT of the ship. This is annoying for EVERYONE-- including other guests. It isn't fun to be trapped behind a slow moving wheelchair through a long hallway. If the accessible rooms were in the middle of the ship as they were when we sailed the Carnival Paradise, it would have been much better for everyone. The staff was nice. The shows were ok. The food was good, and the ports of call were good. On a positive note, we enjoyed Carnival over Disney since Carnival guests were more likely to take the stairs, leaving the elevators for people who required them like us.
