8 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 25, 2015
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Number: 2252
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We chose to drive to Florida to save money on flights.   We met up with a few friends who had booked last year.  Although the drive was long, it was worth it.  We had so much fun on the ship with our friends and tried to do every activity possible.  The ports of call were really beautiful and we got lucky with the taxi drivers we chose to drive us around.  The food on the ship was great.  I truly don't know why people complain about it.  The service was excellent as well. Those people work really hard and sometimes guests can be rude and ungrateful.  Would definitely do a cruise with Carnival again.

The ship needs some updating but it's really clean. The guests are dirty...the crew tried really hard to keep up with them.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was a little cramped for four people. I would definitely do an Ocean View cabin next time.

Ship Tip

We did not do the onshore excursions. We relied on taxi drivers who took us places and picked us up and it was just as great. If you're on a tight budget, that's the way to go.

The beach by the cruise port was a bit rocky. Make sure you have watershoes.

Learn the history! It's really interesting.

Some of the locals were a little aggressive trying to sell us things and even charge us to walk us over to our destination. We didn't fall for it. The watersports location by the Hyatt was great and affordable and they gave us breaks.
