7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 16, 2011
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

It was a nice ship, with a few drawbacks.
It was hard to get away from the smokers. We were hit in the face every night after dinner, there was a lounge right across the hall from the doors. We tried to avoid area's that the smokers were, it kept us out of the casino, lounges, etc.
Outside decks were often closed or off limits to quests. Deck 6 and 7 have outside walkways, they were closed after dark. Decks 11,12 and 4 were closed often due to winds. The bow (very front) was off limits to quests.

We left the one and only show after 15 mins., the women were in short skirts with thongs, and at one point they got up on desks and did a striptease. Granted the show was billed as a burlesque, which it was. But the problem was that right in front of us were a group of kids from Camp Carnival. We knew this from the Carnival Employees directing them. We would not take my kids to this type of show and felt it in bad taste that Carnival does.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Staff was very friendly, not always helpful. We had a hard time getting Honey. It was like nobody knew where any was. We ended up buying our own at first port.

Ship Quality

Size was nice, not too big not too small. But, it was still hard to get away from smokers. Very well kept and impressive look. Every day there was at least one or more Elevator not working.
