Carnival Conquest - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: March 2007
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston
BACKGROUND INFORMATION: My wife and I are retired. This was our fourth cruise. Our last cruise was in April 2006 aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America in Hawaii. We live close to Galveston and drove to a parking facility at the port where transportation was provided for our bags and us to the ship. We arrived at about noon. The embarkation went smoothly and took about one hour.

SHIP INFORMATION: The Carnival Conquest is a very large ship. The ship was built in 2002 and is well maintained. Although the ship will accommodate approximately 3,000 passengers, we always felt as though we had plenty of room. Before departure everybody participates in a lifeboat drill.

ACTIVITIES: There was always something to do. A daily guide was provided which listed information about the ship and scheduled events. Information included the Photo Gallery, Library, Shore Excursions, Shopping, the Casino, Art Gallery, Bingo, Classical Music, Gym and Spa, Cocktail Piano Music, More Live Jazz Music, Country Music and Dancing, Rockin' Dance Music, Game Show Mania, etc.

SERVICE: All service on board the vessel was excellent. We did not have any complaints. Our stateroom steward was Marco from Peru. I asked, "Do you like soccer?" He replied, "Of course, I am a forward on a team." Our headwaiter in the Monet Dining Room was Iketut from Bali Indonesia. His assistant was Atchariya from Thailand. They were capable and friendly and made our dining experience very pleasant.

SHORE EXCURSIONS: At Montego Bay, Jamaica, we took the Croydon Plantation tour. The plantation is a coffee and pineapple farm located in the mountains. The scenery is spectacular. The tour included narratives about the cultivating and processing of coffee and the production of honey. A delicious lunch was included prior to returning to the ship. The tour took about six hours. We took the Grand Cayman Island Tour on George Town, Grand Cayman. This took about two hours and included Seven Mile Beach, a Turtle Farm, the town of Hell and the Tortuga Rum Factory store. Both tours were enjoyable.

SUMMARY: The entire experience was great for the entire seven days. The balcony stateroom and the onboard entertainment also enhanced the cruise. Less
