7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 06, 2011
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Very nice easy to find your way around, only thing was on certain areas, to get there you had to go thru the Renoir or go to another floor above or below it. Also needed better signs for the deck you were on, clocks to post the times, and the fun ship news letter posted in frames in various places for a quick reference to the activities for that day.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
would have liked to have a ice cream social hour, at that time offering, build your own sundas, would have been great for the kids as well as the ice cream loving adults! Other than that food was very good as was varity.

Would like to have seen more activities, such as the horse races(cruisers as the jockies) place real bets, very popular on other cruises. More use of the night clubs during the day for lines dances, physical activities for the adults, too many just sitting activities. Have a walking club, shuffle board tournaments, etc.

Service and Staff

afew of staff were hard to understand, and I don't think they understood use very well either.

Don' like the pressure from the native people to come in their shops and shop, or the pressure to buy.

Enjoyed the Pineapple plantation tour, but should have been told about the winding rough roads to get there, I got car sick!

The tour we took for sight seeing just took us from one end of 7 mile beach to the other, acouple of stops on it, I thought we'd see more of the Island.

Pros: ease of going out of Galveston, size of the ship, the bigger the better!

Cons: the daytime activities while at sea, would have liked to have had a better varity and see more use of all the club areas, also less smoking areas, I like alot of activiteies involving the cruisers. No activities planned for Marti Gras until after 10p.m. should have been an all day celebration!

Recommends Carnival Conquest? Yes!
