Five star hotel on the ocean
The Carnival Conquest is a fabulous ship! We loved the cruise, the staff, and all the shows! The rooms were so clean and comfortable. I compared the ship to a five star hotel, but in reality it is far better than any 5 star hotels I've stayed at.
There is tons of food and lots of selection in what to eat, but the taste was just OK. It's the kind of food where it looks like it will taste really good, but then just tastes blah. It may have something to do with it being frozen or something. It's not bad though.
There are tons of activities on the ship. We never got bored. We all had massages at the spa. The massage was good, but they try to sell you products afterward.
All in all this was a fabulous cruise. We would go again in a flash. Our only recommendation is that Carnival take Jamaica off of the schedule. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Conquest Balcony Upper 6209
Our cabin was perfect! We had plenty of room. It was quiet. Great view from the balcony. No complaints!
Port and Shore Excursions
Next we went to Dunn's River Falls. We were not impressed with this place. It is not the 8th wonder of the world as some reviews have said. It is a river flowing over some rocks. It's really nothing to see. We have a river just like that one here in Oklahoma. Anyway, the guides rushed us up blowing whistles and encouraging us to pass other groups. Other groups were being encouraged to pass us. It was chaos. The guides were rude. We didn't have much time to look around or take pictures. Beware! when leaving the park the locals will tell you that you are going the wrong way, but you aren't. They just want to lead you down a path of local merchants to try and sale more stuff to you. They really don't like tourist in Jamaica. Oh and beware of the bathrooms! Very dirty, very little running water to wash your hands. Bring hand sanitizer! We will not return to Jamaica.
A bit of a disappointment...
Fun time but not on par with o...
