7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 18, 2014
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 8436
Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This was my first cruise and I was extremely impressed and would recommend a cruise vacation to anyone! The Carnival Conquest was a beautiful ship and the staff went out of their way to make us feel like valued guest and to accommodate our needs. Including cute towel animals and the "Fun Times" that tell you what will be happening the next day (read it!).

The food and entertainment was fabulous and the ports that we traveled to were beautiful! They had food available at any time and offered multiple different options; from a buffet, Guys Burger Joint, a taco/burrito bar, pizza, 24 hour ice cream, and of course, the mail dining hall with wonderful options and a little bit of entertainment every evening! I highly reommend the chocolate melting cake for dessert. :o)


Doing the exotic western Caribbean cruise was an amazing experience and there were so many things that you could do at each port that it was difficult to narrow it down. We decided on a couple of shore excursions and had a wonderful time laying on the beach in Cozumel, snorkeling in Belize, enjoy a private island with exotic wildlife in Honduras, and dancing with dolphins and playing with Sting Rays in the Grand Cayman. Amazing!

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was a double occupancy, twin beds. I recommend bringing a shower caddy of sorts, to the hang in the shower, because there's really not much room in there. Plenty of closet space if you bring a few extra hangers for hanging clothes, you should be good to go. A beach towel is provided for you, so save some space in your luggage and use theirs! :)

Ship Tip

If you do "My Time Dining", it is less crowded earlier. You want to be in and eating around 7pm because the servers do some entertainment that you won't want to miss!
Save room in your suitcase, they provide a Carnival beach towel.
Also, read the evening Fun Times they put in your room! :)

Did the Everglades shore excursion after coming back to port. Fun, and got to hold a baby alligator!

Took a private island shore excursion. Able to enjoy the beautiful countryside without being around a ton of people.

Dolphin Cove and Stingray City! Do not miss out on holding a stingray or petting a dolphin!
