8 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 20, 2016
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8281
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We have cruised many times and all with Carnival. As always 'The Fun Ships' were great. Plenty to do on the cruise and the food was fantastic. In fact, I only have 1 negative thing to say about the entire 8 day cruise. Where we stopped on the Dominican Republic was boring and lacking in anything to do near the ship. I have friends who vacation on that island, so I know it has some pretty areas. However the Cruise terminal is not one of those pretty areas. I would have much preferred a longer day at either Grand Turk or Aruba in exchange for the day in La Romana. Other than that we had a great cruise and will be back on a Carnival ship in a few months!

We don't have kids yet, so this doesn't apply to us.

The Conquest is not my favorite ship. It seemed too chopped up.
