A big disappointment from start to finis

Sail Date: August 29, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Positives: comfortable and clean stateroom; efficient and pleasant stewardess; fun towel animals on bed each night; good balcony; best show "Paris" that we have seen on a cruise. Excellent juggler and magician. Negative: Noise and more noise. No quiet airconditioned location on ship except for the small library. Amplified music in shows drowned out voices of singers. Crowds everywhere. Herded like cattle at embarkation and at evening meals. Many machines out of service (coffee at breakfast, ice, water). Drinking water and fountains scarce throughout the ship. Waiters who could not explain items on the menu (fatoush salad, for instance). Food quality only adequate.

Pros: "Paris" floor show

Cons: constant noise and crowds everywhere

Recommends Carnival Conquest? No.

Ship Quality
Aisles in cafeteria table section too narrow. Broken hot tubs being repaired. Toilet seat came off tolet bowl in stateroom (We are not heavy people like many, many on the ship). Hot toast unavailable at breakfast (toasted, but cold and tough). Nowhere for two people to play cards on decent tables except in eating venues.
Food and Dining
Food was adequate but never superior and certainly never outstanding. Cold toast at breakfast. Crowded tables and chairs.
Cabin / Stateroom
The shower temperature was extremely difficult to control. It usually was tepid and almost never hot. We found long black hair (not ours) in the basin and in drawers when we first arrived. Stateroom was maintained in a very orderly and clean condition throughout the cruise. Superior cabin attendants.
Service and Staff
The best quality encountered was in the cabin attendants and/or stewardesses. The table waiters were not always helpful in explaining the menu. It appears that each waiter has too many tables. Why does the cruise line recommend a cash gratuity for the maitre d'?
Good shows. Especially "Paris", magician, and juggler. The music amplification very often drowned out the singers.
Cozumel, Mexico

Don't Miss: none
George Town, Grand Cayman

Don't Miss: sting rays
Montego Bay, Jamaica

Don't Miss: none
