Carnival Conquest

December 2013 - Carnival Conquest to Caribbean - Eastern

Don't get caught wanting a wheel chair!

My husband and I arrived at the Port of Miami only to find out at that time that there was no free parking for handicapped unless you had a device on the back of your car.  No notice from anyone - Port of Miami or Carnival - out of pocket $140.  Next,  arrive in terminal, check-in in handicap area and wait for a wheelchair and pusher - and wait and wait.  I asked serveral times how long was it going to be and was told they were short of pushers, but it wouldn't be long.  After 30 more minutes I asked for a supervisor, none was to be found - was told pushers and wheelchairs would be coming.  My husband who is hadicapped was extremely tired and at this point all that I wanted to do was to get on the ship.  Now almost an hour later we finally get someone to bring a wheelchair and pusher - only they are not from Carnival, but from the Port of Miami.  It is Carnival's responsibility to have pushers and wheelchairs available, so big THANK YOU to the Port of Miami Authority for picking up the slack.  As for the rest of the trip, overall I would give it a B-.   The evening shows were sad and almost non existent - the food edible - the service very good - condition of the ship good.  The pool area is so small and very crowded, but cabins were comfortable.

Carnival Ecstasy

September 2013 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Bahamas

Carnival Ecstasy

Overall this ship was well worth the special deal that came at the last couple of weeks.  Would have I have wanted to pay full price?  No way.  The food was good, although the breakfast offerings were monotomous.  Service was very good, though as usual, they were constantly pushing alchohol.  My biggest displeasure was the quality of entertainment, or lack thereof.  One good show in the evening and that was that.  The ship was well taken care of, although they needed to pay more attention to clearing the tables by the pool.  There were always dishes needing to be cleared and tables to wiped off.
