For the most part, this was a disappointing cruise. 

What we enjoyed:

*Seems the only saving grace was that we were able to spend time with our sons and family.

*Once we got ashore, Jamaica and the Caymans were wonderful.

What we found not so enjoyable:

*We have been on many cruises, most with Carnival.  The food preparation on Conquest was the worst yet.  When, after 2 evening meals in the Renoir Dining Room, you make it a point to get a burger at Guy's because you expect mediocrity at dinner, something is wrong.

*We do expect on a large ship that the lines will be long at times.  However, these lines were exaggerated by the poor organization, both onboard and ashore.  For example - it appeared that nobody at the Cayman 'Fleet Landing' either a) was in charge, or b) had a clue what was going on.  This was exasperated by the heat (expected) and lack of facilities (not really expected).


The Dining Room and cabin staffs were wonderful. 


We have sailed with Carnival several times.  We are compelled to say that the last 2 trips in particular have lived up to neither our expectations nor Carnival's reputation.


Holley Ayers, our travel guru, was also wonderful!
