  3. Carnival Conquest
This was our second Carnival Line Cruise. The last one was in 1990. We have been on a lot of cruises with other lines. This Ship was a disappointment. It was an older ship and smelled in different areas of the ship. It could of been cleaner. Also entertainment was only OK.. We remember when ships had shows that had live bands and vegas shows with different themes. Well this was not the case. The only show we liked was Epic Rock. Also the shows only lasted 30 minutes. In the past they go for one hour. A lot of cutbacks too. No more candies on your pillow and no toiletries. Our cabin was good. Clean and in a good location compared to other reviews we have read. We were on the main deck 2 and in the center of the ship. Our steward was ok. However we had no beach towels in our room and no room service menu. Had to get them ourselves. Waiter was again ok. A little slow but ok. Not over and above. Food was good at dinner and breakfast. However when coming back from an excursion, it seemed all the buffet and food on lido deck were closed. The only thing was hot dogs. When coming back if you want a snack, they should have something opened. In the past they did. The ports were the best part of the cruise. Carnival I hope does better in the future. Next cruise will be with another line.

Good Ports and Average Ship

  • Snorkeling
    The catamaran snorkel tour was fantastic. The crew did a great job. We highly recommend this tour. The snorkeling was fun and the lunch was very good. We want to go back to Aruba and stay.

  • catalina island beach tour
    Nice beach and beautiful beach. Had a great day. Boat ride over was smooth and they even had food if you wanted it. They should provide this included in the tour.
