Can't say enough praises

Sail Date: September 04, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Everything exceeded our expectations - Carnival really makes you feel welcome and as a first time cruiser we had a lot of questions - like the t-shirts with 'just ask' - with all the confusion on boarding this really helped.

Pros: pretty much everything

Cons: being dogged by photographers

Recommends Carnival Conquest? Yes!

Service and Staff
Our room steward and head waiter (we always asked if there was anything available in his section) were outstanding. The rest of our interaction was also wonderful - real service!
Ship Quality
One comment regarding the elevators - ship has a lot of seniors and people with disabilities - there is no way to tell in the elevator lobby which one is landing - realize there are tones but you literally have to be in front to see the arrows - we missed about 30% of the elevators (husband had recent hip replacement) you really have to move fast before they close.
Food and Dining
Food and staff were outstanding - like the your time dining option.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a suite and could not believe all the closet, cabinet and shelf space - we loved our room and balcony.
Cozumel, Mexico
Enjoyed the island immensely.
Montego Bay, Jamaica
We enjoyed everything with the exception of our plantation guide - he used some profanity laced comments and with a mixed audience we didn't find that appropriate.
George Town, Grand Cayman
Only bus tour guide that didn't ask/have the tip jar out.
