Carnival Conquest - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: November 2005
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston
Embarkation was extremely easy. We arrived at the port at 12:30 pm and were in our cabin by 1:10 pm. We never even had to sit in the blue chairs.

The ship is extremely beautiful. The decor is lovely.

The meals in the dining room and at the buffet for dinner are both of equal quality. Some days the food was excellent, some days it could use a little help.

Our cabin was extremely well kept and the room stewards were very friendly.

One thing we did notice by the buffet line. Someone spilled some water and it took about 10 workers to decide who was supposed to clean it up. It was rather funny to watch each one of them walk by (mostly men) and tell someone else to clean it up. Finally, one of the young girls came with a mop and cleaned it up.

The excursions were nice however there were 6 other ships at Grand Cayman and the crowds were unreal. Also a lot of the islands still had storm damage, which cannot be avoided. It would be better if More there were fewer ships at Grand Cayman.

The shows were nice except I was on this ship 2 years ago and they all were exactly the same. I was hoping some of them had changed. The on board entertainment by the pools was always entertaining.

Disembarkment was also excellent. We chose to self disembark and were in our car by 7:10 am. This is a wonderful cruise even the second time around. I would do it again. Less
