What a blast!!

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We left out of New Orleans on Sept 16,2012 and arrived at the port around 11:00 that morning. We went through the lines pretty fast and was on the ship by noon. We went straight to the Lido deck and found a great service waiter named Adi! He was wonderful at his job and learned our names in seconds and remembered them the whole cruise! We went to our balcony room on the Upper deck around 4:00 and meet John David who was wonderful as well as our room!

Our anytime dining was great and cannot say enough about Vivi and Wassani (sp?) who were great!!! The food was great most nights and good the other but our wait staff made it enjoyable and one of the highlights on the cruise!!

All of the other workers were wonderful and friendly. Anytime you pass ANY of them they had a friendly greeting for you!! Thank you carnival for having such a great staff and boy do they work hard!!!

Getting off the ship at the ports is my only complaint. It was horrible to say the least More if not a nighmare!! Please try and come up with a better system then the one you have. We booked our excursions through local people at Grand Cayman and Carnival would not let us off until they had people off that booked through Carnival. We all paid for this cruise and should be treated equal.But, that being said I still had a wonderful time and will go back soon. The unloading at the ports will not stop my booking another. My wait staff and other workers made up for that!

So, thank you Carnival for having us as guest and treating me and my two girls with respect and almost royalty! My girls are 24 and 17 and they are hooked and will return for many more cruises.

I highly recommend the Carnival Conquest!!! Less

Cabin review: 8A6220 Balcony

We were on the Upper deck room 6220. Our room steward john David was great and the room was nice. The balcony had a great view without any obstructions. The room was quiet with hall traffic and noise from the decks above and below. My only complaint would be our neighbors in room 6222 who kept slamming their balcony door constantly!!
