Carnival Conquest

February 2015 - Carnival Conquest to Caribbean - Western

Good value, fun time, so-so entertainment

This was my first time on Carnival, having also cruised on Royal Caribbean and Norwegian. Overall I have to rate Carnival below those two, but we still had a great time escaping frigid New England! The crew was friendly and helpful at all times. I felt that onboard activities and entertainment were definitely not as good as other cruises. While we all make allowances for on-board entertainment (we understand we're not paying $100 a seat in Vegas or NYC), the entertainment offerings here were definitely below expectations. The exception was comedian John McDonald who was superb. The dining experience was good with an assigned table every night and dedicated servers (unlike NCL's "freestyle" which sucks), but the food was merely "fine". No particular objections, just not great (like Royal Caribbean). The gym is well provisioned but under staffed. We chose this cruise mainly for the itinerary (FLL, Jamaica, Cayman, Cozumel) and the schedule; no regrets. But we'll probably lean toward RCC or NCL next time.
