September 2015 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest
Overall had a great time. The ship was nice, the service was EXCELLENT especially in the dining room. Main dining room meals were very good, buffets were only so-so. But many other dining options so there was something for everyone. As for the ports, Grand Turk and LaRomana Dominican Republic were a waste of time for us. Too much in-your-face pushy vendors in Dom.Rep.
Maybe if we had done water-based excursions we would have liked those places.
Curacao and Aruba were fun.
Most of the on-board activities involved drinking or gambling in various bars or lounges. The pools were PACKED with drinkers so it was basically a booze cruise atmosphere by the pools so we avoided those areas. Really liked the night Dive In Movies by the pool.
