Carnival Conquest - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: July 2005
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We enjoyed our cruise on the Conquest- We got to port around 11:30 and were on ship by 1:15. Our luggage arrived within the hour- all of it- so we unpacked while the kids wandered around the ship. We went to Cezanne for lunch- salad bar was fresh everyday- tables were always abundant. Sometimes for buffet there were lines but remember there are 4 different lines. Went to show first night- OK- ate at 8:00 Monet- steak was very overcooked!!! But overall food was good!!!

Every day we took towels to find chairs around *am- do not wait too late b/c you will not find many around the pool- probably OK up on 10 and 11. We hung by pool mostly, played Bingo-my 12 yo won $120 on Tuesday!!!

Ports were great- very long lines in Cayman getting back on tender but it went quickly- took about 30 minutes to get on tender. Cozumel was OK- wasn't that impressed with it. I thought Jamaica was OK- we rode horses in the ocean and then went to Margaritaville-it rained so we went back to More boat after they did the tramp/ slide for about an hour!!

Food was not that great!! Thought the staff was very friendly, always saying Good Morning etc.

Room was always cleaned by lunch.

Drinks were not that expensive- did bring on soft drinks and beer and a little vodka but spend about $175 on alcohol on ship!! Less
