Plenty of time to Relax & DIVE!
Carnival Conquest Cruise Review to Caribbean - Eastern
Sail Date: July 16, 2016
Ship: Carnival Conquest
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 1106
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 1 year ago
The Ship (Conquest) was clean and maintained
The Food (Buffet) was Hot and Fresh
Restaurant / Dinner Service was mixed but mostly very good
Meal selection was very good, Steak Med-Rare was always very rare
Getting off at ports not bad / Getting back on was mixed, not organized...
Offered Excursions Descriptions NOT Exactly Accurate - Somewhat Misleading
Ie. - 4.5 Rainforest Horseback Riding: San Juan PR
Wait for transportation...
45 minute ride to location
1/2 hr + getting everyone on a horse
45 minute trail ride in to the "Woods"
1/2 hr relax @ babbling brook coming down from Rainforest on Mountain
45 minute trail ride back to stables
45 minute transportation back to ship...
Could see what was possibly a Rainforest on the mountain tops but never saw anything remotely close to what I anticipated
Not a bad trail ride if the cruise group was smaller / broken up
D.R. Amber Cove Port very nice, clean and well maintained
1/2 miles from the port... YIKES! Extreme Poverty, Trash Everywhere!
JUST Because you are Poor doesn't mean you Have to live like a Pig...
Bus To The Beach was Okay...
Beach was, well a Beach, Nothing Special
Carnival NEEDS To VET Some of the Excursions and Accurately describe what is offered
Had a 2 tank boat dive on Grand Turks with Oais
Good Guides, Nice Dives
Had a 2 tank beach dive on St. Thomas,
Not offered by excursions, Only offer Discovery Dive
Self booked with Coki Dive
Very nice beach dive(s)
Overall the experience was very pleasurable
