Review summary

We had a good cruise on the Paradise and were quit disappointed on the Conquest. I guess not every trip is perfect. Overall we had a good time because we were together.

Food and Dining

The service was above reproach, but the food was subpar.

Onboard Activities

Stupid hairy chest contest with lots of overweight men stripping. YUCK!!! Lip sync contest that was just a stupid as the hairy chest. Bingo was so overpriced that we were upset that we even played one time. $30 for three games. It is a sad statement that Carnival has to make money by ripping you off at a simple bingo game.

Entertainment

1 out of 5
This was the worst experience we have ever had on a cruise ship. The performers were adequate but the performance was amateur at best.

Grand Turk Island

Overcrowded beach with chairs and umbrellas you can rent for $25 each, but the fact that you can walk right off the ship onto a beautiful beach with crystal clear water is a plus.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
Too much confusion. Even the staff was upset at all the delays. The port is so small that with arriving and departing overlapping it was a madhouse while waiting for transporation.
