Carnival Conquest to Southern Caribbean

Sail Date: September 13, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Overall had a great time. The ship was nice, the service was EXCELLENT especially in the dining room. Main dining room meals were very good, buffets were only so-so. But many other dining options so there was something for everyone. As for the ports, Grand Turk and LaRomana Dominican Republic were a waste of time for us. Too much in-your-face pushy vendors in Dom.Rep.

Maybe if we had done water-based excursions we would have liked those places.

Curacao and Aruba were fun.

Most of the on-board activities involved drinking or gambling in various bars or lounges. The pools were PACKED with drinkers so it was basically a booze cruise atmosphere by the pools so we avoided those areas. Really liked the night Dive In Movies by the pool.

Cabin / Stateroom
When we saw BUNK beds we pictured one top and one below. It was two separate beds in 2 separate areas which was better.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Very long lines, felt like we were in line for Space Mountain. But they moved quickly and efficiently.
Ship Quality
Staff were constantly cleaning and making things spotless.
Destinations and Excursions
LaRomana Dominican Republic was a waste of time. Too many extremely pushing vendors. Maybe at the luxury resorts it would have been fun.
Onboard Activities
For non drinkers and gamblers, wish there were more activities like movies or classes on Sea Days
Singers were excellent
Service and Staff
Dining staff went out of their way to make the cruise WONDERFUL. It was the best part of the whole cruise!
Food and Dining
Dining room, great...buffets, not so much


Be sure to take along extra medications like cough syrup etc. We both caught a cold and the Duty Free shop on board wanted $18 for a small 6oz bottle of Nyquil that you can get at Walmart for $7. That was a total ripoff. I refused to pay and suffered with my cough for 2 days.
