No Problems Mon, Everything was irie!!

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
The 6 of us all adults over 40 cruise together every year, we were celebrating my sister-in laws 50th birthday this year so she got to choose the ports. She had never been to Jamaica or Grand Cayman. Or on the Conquest. I wanted to go on the Conquest because of the 2.0 upgrades and it was worth it. Guys Burgers an the Cantina were nice additions for food that is a quick eat. At least one of our group actually ate at Guys everyday for lunch and the Cantina for breakfast,(great breakfast burritos). All the food was good all over the ship, tried the taste bar and it was very nice to try.

Didn't have a problem with lines, they moved quickly. The MDR was awesome as always. Out waiter Tutut was the best waiter we have ever had.

Our room steward Carolina was good, but her assistant Pattriack should be moved up as he was awesome, always helpful, we had a smell in our room the first day an he worked on it and made sure it was always smelling nice. Our cabin was at the end and More I think the sewer ends up there and causes a smell sometimes.

Everything was very clean across the ship, not alot of chair hogs, but I didn't see any employees removing anything.

Tendering was easy, just be there 15 minutes before they tell you to, we got on the first tender even though we had a private excursion booked online.

Be careful about booking excursions when you get off the ship we came across some people who had been left at the yacht club with no way back.

Sea days were great, plenty to do if you wanted and nice relaxing places to just chill.
Jamaica was great, we have been several times on land vacations, so we were comfortable hiring a driver and just exploring, we went to the Martha Brae River rafting and enjoyed a calm ride down the river. We did have a long wait there but, there were 5 ships in port the day we were there.

This is a cruise we would take again, enjoyed the 3 sea days to relax and New Orleans is a great time also.

This was our second time out of New Orleans and they really have it going on with embarkation and debarkation. Less

Cabin review: 4J1003 Interior with Picture Window (obstructed views)

Cabin 1003 Great location, larger room with window overlooking a "secret" deck. Quiet, no noise at all. The only down side was the sewer smell sometimes because of being at the end of the pipes. Fixed immediately when brought to their attention

Port and Shore Excursions

Cozumel is my favorite port after a long week, we just relaxed at a juice bar just to the right of the Puerto Maya pier, after going into town and eating at Toro's Place.

Stingray Swim

Booked with Native way for the Sting Ray City and Rum Point, Great time while on the tour, lunch was ready when we arrived at Rum Point. The only thing is there is not as many sting ray as in the past years that we have done this excursion. Rum Point was awesome!!

Private Tour

Willie gave us a tour of the area and took us to the Martha Brae river. Also stopped at a beachside bar for a drink. Felt very safe, he stayed with us the whole time and let us know we were safe.
