7 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 01, 2011
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Overall, the ship looked really good. There was a lot of cleaning going on all the time, not the fault of the cruiseline, but the people that came on the cruise. Looks like a majority of the people on the ship were from the lower to lower-middle class, and cleanliness was not their forte.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Excellent choices, very good food. There were set timings when food is available. At times, had to miss out on the food as the best shows conflicted with the restaurant timings.


5 out of 5
Very good activities. At times, there was nothing to do.

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Very good child programs. Split children by age groups and they had a blast.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The ship staff were very good, professional and was available to help anytime.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The layout of the ship was great, very kid-friendly with kid related activities. Cleanliness was the issue, not the fault of the cruiseline but due to the people taking a vacation. Main issue was people crowding the pools and walking all over with water dripping from their clothes. Ever heard of a towel, people?

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very good. Had a window. The window exterior was dirty. If it was clean, it would have afforded an excellent view. Room smelled of smoke due to an earlier cruiser smoking in the room.

Went to the Appleton Estate. The drive through the countryside was beautiful.
Don't Miss: The interior of the country

Sea Trek. A must do for anyone over 8 years. No need to know swimming, and more fun than snuba.

Went to Tulum. Very nice ruins and a perfect beach below that. Sad part, you only have time to visit the ruins and you are back on the ship just before it leaves. Wish there was more time at this port.

Pros: The shows, and the ports of calls

Cons: Ship looks old inside and the public areas has a bad air.
