5 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 02, 2016
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 1465
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago

Pros:

lots to do, lots to eat, or just relax and do nothing

variety of shore excusions

 

Cons:

not all-inclusive... additional costs add up

noise from engines/propellers

overpriced excursions...  you pack 15-20 people into a mini-bus at $50+ for what amounts to a very expensive "1.5hr cab ride"  

 

Suggestions:

could do a better job of identifying whats not included

provide menu in advance so we know what's free and what comes with a cost

flag rooms that have potential high levels of noise

discount package pricing for excusions... priced for 1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-9, 10+

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
the fixed time dinner/dining needed more variety... had to pay for some of the items

Ship Tip

find any postings from people who have similar travel plans (like couples, singles, family with kids) to get a better idea what onboard and shore options are better suted for you and your group

5 out of 5
go early and plan time if you want to do multiple things... the beach was great... the bus tour was OK... not much time for leisure walking around if you do a tour and want beach time
3 out of 5
not much to do unless you book a tour... nothing to do on your own besides the beach, everything elase was specific to tours
