7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 18, 2007
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The cruise was great. From what we'd heard and read about Carnival, we figured the food wouldn't be quite as good, but the entertainment first rate. Turned out to be just the opposite! Service was also superb. I'd wished I'd given a little extra (they charge your tips to your ship account) to our waiter and steward, because they really did a great job, worked hard to give us a nice experience. About the time we'd gotten to the ship, Lynn realized she mostly wanted to relax (we only got off in 2 of our 3 ports, and had 3 sea days besides). Went to art auction previews (free champagne!), which was a new, fun thing for us. Best Captain's reception we've ever been to. Port of Galveston was marginal. (Every bathroom was closed, which had to be a problem for some of the 3000 passengers boarding!) To be safe, allow 3 hours to get from Bush. Our shuttle service (Galveston Limo) was marginal. Production shows relied too much on feathers and skin... not family entertainment, and actually a bit boring.

Nice day at Chankanaab Park on our own.

We did Jungle River Tubing. Beautiful trip down river, but disappointing in that they roped together a dozen tubes to keep people together, and the river was extremely tame (low water at this time of year). Would be careful doing anything on your own in Jamaica.
