Carnival Conquest
7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 28, 2013
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
We've been on this same ship so many times and this time was a great experience, as usual. However, the service by our Monet serving team was OUTSTANDING, and exceeds service at any 4star restaurant like Ruth's Chris and others. The lead server at our table should be commended and promoted....words cannot adequately express our gratitude. The food selection on Lido and the Monet were outstanding as well, with the most diverse variety I have ever experienced on any ship. The only problem was the noise made by a window washing set up that was above our room. The constant pounding was awful and ruined two nights of sleep on what was supposed to be a "restful" vacation. The entertainment was okay but not outstanding as we have previously experienced. Some excursion times were much longer than indicated which caused limited time to see the city or have a leisure walk. Getting on and off the ship was easy, well organized and quick.

Ship Tip

Skip Lido for dinner and dine in one of the restaurants. The food is EXCELLENT! Walking up and down steps is great exercise. Walking the length of the ship where the rooms are located is also great exercise. Take your own bottles of water and you will not have to purchase prior to going on an excursion.

Come a day or two early and enjoy this wonderful city and great food. The Gumbo Shop in the Quater is great.

Excursions are long and you may not have time to go into the city. There is a large straw market in the city that's great to shop.

Go on the tour and see the turtles.

Go to Pancho's Porch at the end of downtown and drink a margaretta.
