Typical Carnival == just OK

Sail Date: April 17, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

It was a Carnival cruise which means kitschy fun. They don't measure up to RCCL or Princess, or anybody really. But their prices don't measure up either. Middle of April but kids were everywhere; and everywhere at all times of the day and night (running in halls at midnite, anyone?) Had an Ocean suite which is the equivalent of an average Holiday Inn room. Nothing special at all. VIP boarding is a joke...we got to stand in a 640 person line instead of a 680 person line. Big Whoop!!! Carnival excursions that mention shopping don't mention "its a Carnival-owned shop we'll be taking you to". The Dolphin/Stingray excursion was fun.

Pros: Clean suite; very good steward

Cons: Pushy overpriced alcoholic drinks; disinterested employees

Recommends Carnival Conquest? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
I expected much better from a suite
Food and Dining
Nothing special at all; buffet is poorly laid out and poorly staffed and poorly stocked.
Service and Staff
Nobody went above and beyond; several went below and within.
Ship Quality
Very pretty, artsy ship
"Little Theater" quality shows.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Dolphin swim and Stingray city; young, disorganized, immature staff but a fun cameras allowed because they sell photos and DVDs.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Did Mystic Mountain tranopy excursion; very fun and employees were exemplary. Owned by Carnival
Cozumel, Mexico
Only thing in port is cruise ship owned shops; very expensive and $15 worth of cab fare away from downtown.
