7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip) Sail Date: April 03, 2011 Ship: Carnival Conquest Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Large Group Reviewed: 6 years ago
It was wonderful. I am a first time sailer and will definately be back. There was just so much to see and do that I didn't have enough time..... Guess I have to go back..... The staff were so wonderful. Never did I feel less than special. The food was fabulous. The ship was very clean. I can't say enough about how wonderful my trip was. We traveled with a party of 8 women and of that party 2 of the women and their husbands are now planning to renew their wedding vows this next April. The others are planning their next trip.

The only thing that would have made it a little easier is if they would have put out the weekly activity schedule over the daily schedule. It would have made for better planning... tried to get into the commedy club but couldn't because it was packed, so thought I could get in on another night, but didn't have it..... If I could have known .....
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
The steward and our wait staff (we requested the same table each night - party of 8) were superb. They went out of their way to make us feel special.
Rose Hall wasn't all it was cracked up to be. Then the shopping area we were supposed to go to we were told was closed, but at the end of our excursion we were given 20 minutes at the downtown market area. Would like to get back to Jamaica and do a beach excursion.
Our Parasailing excursion was cancelled at the last minute,We got in at 7:30 and our parasailing was at 11:00. Had we known when we first got there we could have rescheduled and taken another excursion. Unfortuneatly, we were not able to get an excursion at this port. So we went into Margaritaville and had one order of nachos, and 4 drinks $65.00. and we were kicked out as soon as our drink and nachos were through. We were enjoying the show and thought for the price we were there between 30 and 45 minutes. Once we said we were not ordering another round they sent us on our way. So I was a little disappointed there. But overall, Grand Cayman was beautiful and I would like to experience it again at another time.
Pros: Everything..... It was everything and more than I expected
Cons: That I was the last section to get off, when I booked a year in advance.
