Family Cruise Conquest 2016

Sail Date: February 20, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

Had a great time with family.  The Conquest needs some work - floor tiles in the Lido eating area very worn and cracking - needed to be replaced.  Ceiling fell down on the Lido Deck next to the main pool area - took 3 days to fix.

Guest cabins were great - we had an outside room and it was very spacious and clean.  Now that Carnival offers the drink package - the staff doesn't seem to be as attentive when coming around asking if you want a drink - this happened on the Lido Deck and during the shows, including the comedy shows.  It is faster to go to the bar yourself and get a drink. 

Ports of call were GREAT during this cruise - Grand Turk - La Romana, DR - Curacao and Aruba and we all had an Awesome time - there was a group of 18 of us.

Also, VERY disappointed that they discontinued the Captain's Reception with the Gold Members - only offer for Platinum and Diamond.

Cabin / Stateroom
Oceanview Stateroom VERY spacious and VERY clean - our Cabin Steward was the BEST!!!!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
needs some repairs on this ship - cracked and broken floor tiles in the Lido Deck restaurant and the ceiling fell down next to the Lido Deck main pool and it took almost 3 days to fix. Also, sewage smell when going into the Main Theatre.
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Seems that now that Carnival offers the drink package - the wait staff does not come around that often to ask if you want anything. It is faster to go to the bar yourself and get a drink.
Food and Dining
we were with a group of 18 people - we had 10 people at a table and then 8 people in the table behind us. We had 2 separate wait staff - which we didn't understand. The table of 8 behind us had a wait staff that only had their table and maybe 3 more small tables - our wait staff had our large table and then 3 more large tables and about 4 small tables. I didn't feel that was fair to our wait staff as they did their BEST to keep up but fell behind and our other group was always getting their desert and we were will getting our main course - they were gone and we were still eating - we were traveling together and should have been together. It was not the fault of our wait staff - they were wonderful and did their best - the Dining Room Managers should have recognized that and shifted the wait staff accordingly.
