Carnival Conquest

June 2016 - Carnival Conquest to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Conquest

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!

Vision of the Seas

December 2014 - Vision of the Seas to Caribbean - Western

Vision of the Seas

Good time with best friends.  Great ports in order of preference Cozumel - Costa Maya - Belize - Honduras.

Vision is a bit small....appears there's no way to set up photography for at sea pictures without walking through someone's shot or someone walking through yours.

My Time dining seemed a bit goofy....it's 'My Time' but you need a reservation to keep from standing in line while those with My Time and a reservation zipped through and you waited.

I don't like not having my portfolio available either on line or at a kiosk.

The positive note:  the crew, staff, accommodations, food, entertainment were all great!

wychewning's Tips

Tampa, Florida - Use the services of a Porter to get through customs and to the parking garage with your luggage.
Belize City, Belize - Go to othe Myan Ruins. We had a tour guide that was extremely knowledgeable.
Cozumel, Mexico - Beautiful. We got a local taxi driver...wonderful young may named Alberto....who drove us all over the island for close to 5 hours. Took us shopping and on three free tours.
Vision of the Seas Vision of the Seas - We'd really like a larger ship, but Vision was friendly, safe, and we had a great time.
