Allure of the Seas

August 2016 - Allure of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Beautiful Ship

My overall experience was wonderful.  The ship was beautiful, with plenty to do for all ages.  The staff was attentive and friendly.  The food was good in the MDR, as I didn't eat in any of the specialty restaurant.  Windjammer was okay for the quality of the food, but the couple of times we went, there were no seats available.  The only major compliant was the treatment for the suite guests.  We have been in The Haven on NCL and after being escorted onto the ship, we were taken to the Haven lounge and restaurant area and given a briefing of the suite benefits and where everything was located.  Not so with RC.  We were sent up the gangway and just left at the door to figure out where to go.  No introduction to the Coastal Kitchen or the Suite benefits.  Another minor issue, even though no irons are allowed on board (understand that) but no irons are provided for short term use.  You have to pay to have your things pressed.  On Carnival, they provide a area with the laundry facilities to iron your own clothes and on NCL, they provide an iron in your cabin for an hour to press your own clothes.  Not a big deal, but just noticed some of these perks. On the positive side, the shows were the best that I've ever seen on a cruise ship.  Hats off to RC for that.  I understand the shows are changed every 5 years, so that's a deterrent for me to book again on the same ship since I really enjoy the shows but would like to see something different.  Had a great time and really enjoyed the ship.

Carnival Conquest

August 2015 - Carnival Conquest to Caribbean - Southern

Great Cruise but Room for improvements

This is my 5th cruise on Carnival but my first on the Conquest.  I have been on the Valor and the Freedom and feel that Conquest needs some improvements.  We stayed in the Grand Suite and for that cost, they should have kept up on wear and tear items.  The bathroom had mold in the caulking around the bottom of the doors and rust coming from the shower attachments.  Also, the tub had numerous pits that made the tub appear unclean.  It's not so hard to reglaze the tub!  Shame on carnival.  The balconies also show major signs of age.  Dirty and rusty.  Also on previous cruises, I've always noticed staff constantly cleaning the rails, elevators and commons areas.  This is the first ship that I never noticed any cleaning being done, beside general vacumning and housekeeping.  Kind of surprised to see this.  Besides these issues, I loved the staff as usual.  I've never encountered a rude or staff member unwilling to help.  I love to interact with them and learn about their lives.  This ship's crew did not disappoint.  These minor issues won't deter me from Carnival but I would probably not spend the money on the Conquest but rather a different ship within their fleet.
