My First Cruise

Sail Date: March 12, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

We went on the Carnival Conquest and it was my first cruise ever. I was in awe when I first saw the ship. It was huge. Once we got onboard I was stunned by the interior. It was beautifully designed. When I got to my room I realized the refrigerator was locked. My friend told me that we could not get into it until the boat undocked. I was worried because I am Insulin-dependent and it must be refrigerated. The housekeeper was making her rounds and when she heard of my dilemma she got her boss and they immediately took care of the situation. The rooms were absolutely beautiful, clean and roomy. We mainly dined in the Monet. It was beautiful and the dining staff was excellent. Rick and Gersom were our waiters. They were fabulous. They were courteous and very professional. We were floored by the size of the gym. They had everything. Looking out and seeing the ocean while exercising was an awesome experience. The nightime shows were superb. It was great fun. I spent most of the time swimming, gambling, and shopping. We encountered and picked up some Cubans that were stranded in the ocean. Good job to the crew for their humanity in that situation. My only two complaints are that we docked at 8 A.M. and it took us until noon to get off the ship. We were told the delay was because of the illegal Cubans on board needing to be processed by Border Patrol. The second was before my excursion in Mexico. We had to meet in the lounge and I had to walk down five flights of stairs in order to get out of the ship and into the boat that took us inland. I was told there was no other way to go. I am handicapped and dependent on a wheelchair for even short walks. So walking down those steps was very hard and painful for me. There has got to be another way to get handicapped people onto that boat without endangering their health. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Pros: The staff was amazing

Cons: Walking five flights of stairs

I went on the submarine and I got to see damage from Hurricane Wilma. I didn't spend too much time off the boat in Mexico.

The shopping and vendors were so nice. We got to feed and pet the stingrays and it awesome.
Don't Miss: Looking out at the ocean.
