Relaxing time, away from the world.

Sail Date: May 01, 2011

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

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.

Pros: The shows, and the ports of calls

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

Recommends Carnival Conquest? Yes!

Food and Dining
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
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.
Service and Staff
The ship staff were very good, professional and was available to help anytime.
Very good activities. At times, there was nothing to do.
Children's Programs
Very good child programs. Split children by age groups and they had a blast.
Ship Quality
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?
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Went to the Appleton Estate. The drive through the countryside was beautiful.
Don't Miss: The interior of the country
Cozumel, Mexico
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.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Sea Trek. A must do for anyone over 8 years. No need to know swimming, and more fun than snuba.
Don't Miss: Sea Trek
