8 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 21, 2015
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6429
Traveled As: Couple

Very easy embarkation thanks to Phyllis Cronin's expert help as usual. Food was very good especially our favorite dinner which was lobster/shrimp night. Some of the dinner menus were limited. Lido buffet quality continues to slip. Cruise we took in 2014 had stir fry bar, missed it on this one. Show quality very limited, no orchestra (band). Best show was a comedian/hypnotist. Balcony room was good but location had us near 2 AM loud music shows. Sorry we go to bed by 10 or 11. Evi, our cabin steward was the best we have ever had, so efficient & friendly. Dining staff was just average, believe they have cut numbers of help. Never saw much of dining management not that they were needed. Need to get our shore excursions in advance, could not get 2 we wanted but enjoyed the ones we took especially in Dominican Republic to Santo Domingo. Curacao was great.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
It is close to late night music so if you go to bed early get a cabin on the other end of deck, say 6200's

Ship Tip

Eat lunch before 1:30 or selections very limited. Ask for Monet dining room. Renoir which we had has no windows, kind of small.
