Room Type: Inside

Fantastic weather, excellent cabin and steward, wonderful food.

Helicopter tour on Grand Turk was very nice.

Entertainment didn't compare to past cruises.

Wouldn't recommend Amber Cove. 

Half Moon Cay was absolutely gorgeous!!!

Other cruisers very noisy in middle of night.  Lots of unattended children/teens running around.  My husband had to go out at 1:30am and take care of it.  Two couples with whom we traveled also had to call security several times and go into the halls to take care of noise problems themselves.


Cabin / Stateroom
Manuel, our steward, was just perfect!
Cabin was much larger than the Norwegian Breakaway, a much newer ship, that we went on prior to the Conquest.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation took more than three hours! Very disorganized, but unsure if it was a Carnival problem or perhaps the local authorities. Had to remain stationery and standing for more than 2 hrs in ridiculous lines with impatient children.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Did not use, but saw some of them and they looked good.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Grand Turk Island
Beautiful island, but very small. We saw the whole thing via a 12 min air tour.
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic
Very dirty and poor. So sad to see so many sick, homeless animals wandering around. I have heard many wonderful things about D.R. Am assuming the Santo Domingo end of the island is the nicer part.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
The most beautiful water and white powder beach I have ever seen (and we are very well travelled.) Just gorgeous. Didn't want to leave.
