Carnival Conquest August 2006

Sail Date: August 20, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We were on the Carnival Conquest in August, 2006. The ship was well-kept and the designs were over-the-top and cheesy, but really fun. The food was better than I expected, and there was never a shortage of it. We ate at the Supper Club once; the food was great, up until the main courses (filet and porterhouse). The steaks were FAR below our expectations, because everything else at the supper club was AMAZING by comparison. All of the staff throughout the ship were extremely friendly and helpful (with the exception of the bouncers at Henri's Disco--they were ruder than any bouncers I have ever encountered). Although there was always a bingo game (or two) going on, I wish that the ship would have had more activities during the day. The pools were WAY smaller than I expected-- there were 3 pools (I think), but they are all very, very shallow and very, very small. The adults only pool was less crowded than the main pool, and was (for the most part) kept adults only. The drinks on the ship were not overly expensive--if you go out to bars at all, then they are actually pretty reasonable (like $5-6 drinks on average).

Pros: Food was great

Cons: Not enough activities

Montego Bay, Jamaica
Went shopping in a cordoned off area with fine jewelry stores. Outside of this area seemed a little dangerous and sketchy, so we never ventured out. Bought some fine jewelry and a Swiss watch, which were both REALLY good deals, but wish that we had ventured to a beach. Next time, will head to the beach in Jamaica and save shopping for Cozumel or Grand Caymans.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Went to the butterfly farm, which was a cute excursion. Was supposed to go to the beach afterwards, but there was a huge thunderstorm. Went shopping instead and got great deals on more fine jewelry.
