Awful, Miserable, & Borderline Inhumane

Sail Date: September 26, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

My husband, myself, my elderly mother, and my 18-month-old son took a seven-night cruise to the Western Carribean. We were only allowed off the ship for 10 hours in eight days. Our trip encountered a tropical storm, but, unlike the other Carnival ship, went straight through the storm instead of re-routing. I spent three days stuck in a cabin with a sick mother and baby. The lazzez faire attitude of the staff to people's suffering was appalling. Our family hadn't been on a vacation for three years, and, when I think of all the money we spent to suffer so badly, I really want to cry.

Pros: Seated dinner was good and waitstaff was wonderful

Cons: Everything else

Recommends Carnival Conquest? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our bathroom flooded every time we showered. The only positive is that the beds were comfortable.
Ship Quality
The only positive thing I will say is they did clean the cabins twice a day, which is very good thing when people are sick. Every time we took a shower, our whole bathroom flooded.
It's the same thing everyday, and, after two days, we'd had enough. After eight days, we were just mad.
Children's Programs
The staff in the kids' club is awful, at least to the under two's. Don't put your babies in there without supervision.
Food and Dining
The food in the dining rooms was very good, and the waitstaff in the dining rooms was exceptional.
Service and Staff
The waitstaff was excellent. The staff in the infirmary and the kids' club was borderline mean.
Cozumel, Mexico
The ten hours we were let off the ship in Cozumel were glorious.
