February 2016 - Carnival Conquest to Caribbean - Western
The ports were actually very nice, but the food and service left a lot to be desired. Our mistake is probably we have already been on several higher-end cruise so we can't help but compare this experience to those. An example would be after ordering our wine, it often took 30 minutes to actually get our drinks in-hand. And, more often than not, the food in the buffet was over-cooked as well as our selections in the dining room. the saving grace for us on this cruise was the excellent fish served in the "fish & chips" spot on deck 10 and the amazing burgers made fresh at the Guy's burger joint on the Lido deck by the pool - I would easily compare them to the taste and freshness of the famous In 'n Out burgers.
