Review for Carnival Conquest to Caribbean - Western

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

First time cruiser, left Galveston 10/30/11. Have heard all my life how 'wonderful' food is on a cruise. Wonderful is not a synonym for 'abundant' and 'constant' and 'inedible'. I know because I looked it up. I am not a picky eater. Food was mediocre or gross. Food was either fried, cold, or both, but mostly cold. I must say the fruits and veggies were generally fresh and I did have ...

embarkation was fast and easy, no problems. Was on ship within 30 minutes of arriving. Got a soda card for my daughter, what a rip off. $44 for unlimited soda. She drank 3 or 4 a day and they use cans but do not give you the can. We could have brought a case of cokes for $8. Food was mediocre. Did not care for the new menus. If you like steak you can forget about getting one unless you ...

We enjoyed parking at the Lighthouse Parking lot in Galveston. Covered spaces with transport of luggage in the van with us to the terminal. Porters were readily available and we had bags checked and were in line by 11:30. Embarkation was not a problem for us since we are Platinum Club members. However, the lines were very long for those having to wait in line. We were on Lido deck for lunch by ...

First cruise!! Will NOT be our last!! This forum, the lists of things to bring, and reviews of excursions was SOOOOOOO helpful!! I'll start from the beginning. GALVESTON PORT: NO ONE had mentioned how to get into the parking lot at the pier, and the front gate had "no entry" on it. We incorrectly thought maybe it was closed on Sunday or something :/ So we went to our covered parking spot, and ...

Departed on Conquest Oct. 16th. Embarkation very smooth. On ship by 1145am. Our cabin was ready at 130pm. Sailed with grandchildren on fall break. The ship is worn in places. The crew are always smiling and pleasant. We had open seating for dinner in the Renoir dining room. Ate in the dining room on the second cruise night-food was cold. I sent it back and still it was cold and I never received ...

We were traveling with 4 people in our room, all adults, one oceanview cabin on Riveria. My husband and I as well as my IN-laws.Our ship sailed full so there were a lot of people onboard. This was my 6th Carnival cruise. I am going ot break it down by category to make it eassier. Food- The food on the lido deck was decent. Some days were better than others but it was never exceptional and ...

The cruise was our ninth together in just over four years, my first with Carnival in about a decade. Weve sailed primarily with Princess and Royal Caribbean, the former being our cruise line of choice. This ...

We were not expecting much. We had a late, crowded embarkation (due to someone jumping overboard on the previous cruise...did they dislike it THAT MUCH ?) The inside room was nice.. and the cruise started to get good. Perhaps I will just list the good and the bad: Good: Service. We did Anytime Dining. Never waited longer than 2 minutes for seating. Service was MUCH FASTER than other cruise ...

So here's that shortened, condensed version, appearing below, highlighting strengths & weaknesses of the cruise. 1.) STRENGTHS of the Carnival Conquest ...

We cruised the Eastern Caribbean itinerary the end of September and there were good points but unfortunately the bad outweighed the good. This is our 15th cruise, 2nd cruise on this particular ship. All in all we had a great time because we chose not to let negative occurrences ruin our vacation but also felt led to write this review for same reason. Let's start from the beginning. Embarkation ...
