Carnival Conquest - Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
By Tuesday, another day at sea, we had smooth seas and warmer weather! It was then after lunch on the Lido deck that we found our favorite place to sit and relax. Outside the main deck doors, next to the purser and the excursions deck was a quiet deck, with lounge chairs and hardly any people. We quickly snatched up a few of the chairs and laid them by the railing where we could here the splashing of the waves, feel a occasional mist or two, and best of all, we were still able to hear each other as we talked! tuesday evening was formal night and we decided to dress up and try for some pictures! Next day was filled with an day at port to Jamaica. Although probably not one of the safest places, the beach we went to was extremely nice and beautiful. Next day was at port to Grand Cayman Islands. What a beautiful and safe place. Fantabulous snorkeling! Great shopping! Last port day was at Cozumel. We rented a scooter that day and drove around the island. Great fun...except for shopping because the people wouldn't leave you alone! Last day at sea, Saturday, was spent lounging around and soaking in the sun the last day aboard the CONQUEST. Evening there were goodbye dinners and a seminar about hour to disembark.
We decided to do the self-disembarkation since we needed to get on the road as soon as possible to be able to get back to Missouri by early evening. That meant that instead of setting out or suitcases the night before we had to wait in the lobby with ALL OF OUR BELONGINGS and embark as soon as customs cleared the ship. Lots or work (especially if you over-packed like me...and probably not advisable if you have small children along!) and pretty tiring but needed if you are in a rush!We were off the ship and to our car by 8:30...good timing! Less
