February 2016 - 6 Night Western Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest
stateroom and dinner dining shortcomings
We had an thundering sound that intermittently woke us up multiple times on 5 of 6 nights in room 2395. Staff tried to identify the source of the sound but could not due to it being so intermittent. The boat was full so we could not move. Food, especially for the the dinner dining room, was of lesser quality than expected. We were at a table for 10 for late seating - that had just 4 persons on most nights and they would not move us to other tables that had vacancies. Breakfast in dining room was good and having some company at a larger table was pleasant. Sorry to say the Burger and fry counter had some of the better food on board. Plenty of food to eat at the buffet, but the quality of much of it was company cafeteria grade. One performer was apparently replaced at the last minute, and another show was changed when a lead performer was sick. One female singer/dancer stepped up with a very good performance when a co-performer was sick, and carried one show. Bar service was below average - we had several long waits as the bartenders tended to service customers at the ends of the bar and ignore customers in the middle. Comic shows were very good. Some onshore excursions were fun. Boat was very clean virtually everywhere.
