The NOT SO FUN ship
Destination: Western Caribbean
Another issue with this cruise was the amount of unescorted, unsupervised, unruly children running around the ship. We were traveling with two children ourselves, and I enjoy having children on the ship for my kids to play with. But letting the kids camp out in the elevators sitting on the floors singing songs? I swear it was like daddy day care gone wrong. These were not teenagers these were kids and the eight to 12 age range.
On our last sea day we tried to play the beanbag toss. We arrived early and waited for the trivia game that was going on to finish. We were then told that too many people have showed up and there would be a Lotto to decide who got to play the beanbag toss. You were supposed to go up to get a ticket with you and your partner together. As hordes of people descended on the activities person, he just started handing out tickets. Our team had one ticket. Others had multiple tickets. Needless to say we did not play in the beanbag toss. Never have I ever been turned away from playing an activity on a cruise because supposedly there was not enough time.
I know that taste in decor can be quite different between people. The theme of the conquest looks to be designed around famous impressionist painters. I think it looks like Monet and Cezanne threw up, and they went with it. (Maybe the seafood again?) One word describes this ship: gaudy.
All I have to say is this:
