Plenty of time to Relax & DIVE!

Sail Date: July 16, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

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

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
