7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 12, 2009
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago

The opening show, "Point and Click" was terrible. The singers sounded like lounge singers. The dancers were very good and got better as the cruise went on. The main dining food was boring and in some cases, plain bad. The Point diner was excellent! Our table partners wound up eating there 4 out of the 7 nights. The activities were the same as other Carnival cruises. The shore excursions were pretty good. In Gran Cayman, we went to "Hell" and it was exactly that. It needs to be dropped from the agenda.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Main dining was boring. The service was fair. The head waiter spent more time with the table of single women than with our family table.

Activites need to be updated. Same programs as our first cruise 5 years ago.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Mr. Brooks, the golf pro was very helpful and fun to be around. The staff was exactly what you would expect from a service driven company.

Ship Quality

Go to the Sandels resort. Top notch. Only problem is the 'all you can drink' bar. Several folks go drunk and were more than obscene.

Sting rays and turtles were amazing and a lot of fun. 'Hell' is a tourist trap and not worth the stop.

3 reef snorkel was very cool. Our dive master, Monty, did a wonderful job pointing out the different sea life.

Pros: The shows were top notch. The first show was boring and left alot to be desired.

Cons: The main dining food was so-so. The beds were very hard and uncomfortable

Recommends Carnival Conquest? No.
