Not sold on this whole cruising idea

Sail Date: January 2011
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston

The good:

- Lobster tail in the restaurant was divine!

- Deep water dolphin excursion at the Atlantis in Nassau was a blast! The aquariums at the Atlantis are excellent, don't miss that if you visit the Atlantis.

- Glass bottom boat trip in Freeport was excellent. The areas we viewed were gorgeous with lots of fish. There was a large group of reef sharks hanging around the shipwreck. Kudos to the crew providing information about what we were looking at. All-in-all a great excursion. Take a bathroom break prior to boarding, though. The restroom on the boat makes most gas station bathrooms look inviting.

The bad:

- Disco was right under our cabin and the bass was very loud way past midnight every night. Sleeping was difficult.

- Sushi bar is not a full sushi bar, just a few rolls offered at a time.

- Long, slow buffet lines.

- Everything seemed crowded and noisy.

- Passengers had a hard time finding their More way around on the ship. Some decks you can't walk all the way from forward to aft without walking through cigar/cigarette smoke.

- Check your receipts when you order drinks. A couple of times the receipt I was given to sign had another passenger's name on it. I wonder how often passengers accidentally, or on purpose, charge drinks to the wrong folio. Less

Cabin review: Carnival Conquest Balcony Upper 6400

Too much noise from the disco below!!! If you don't go to bed until after 1 or 2 am, this would be the cabin for you. A little cramped, but OK. Half the time when I stepped out on to the balcony to take in the view I also took in the neighbor's cigarette smoke. That got annoying.
