August 2015 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Conquest
Not happy with the Carnival Conquest
we had sailed carnival once before, then took two Norwegian Cruises. By far the Norwegian Cruises were better. The ship was in a bad state of repair, the food was not up to par, the entertainment...a commedian and a juggler is not what i call entertainment. one band doing the same old tired classic rock songs. As for the ports, I still an trying to figure out why Grand Turk was included, There is nothing there but sand....Dom Rep. from all the info I got about crime there we never left the port shopping area, Curacao, not impressed and the excursion was supposed to take us thru town for "photo ops" and being a photographer I looked forward to this, WE NEVER STOPPED AND NEVER WENT THRU THE CENTER OF TOWN!!! no photos...Aruba....we chose to go to a private island with water park, snorkeling, beach, buffet and drinks included, and it was very expensive....such sorry excuse for food there too..and the drinks..packaged punch with alcohol..good thing I am not really a drinker. Water at the beach was all rock. No one even went in. the only bright spot was the water slides, 6 of them.
