  3. Carnival Conquest
This cruise was a disaster with no where to run stuck in the middle of the Atlantic ocean making only 3 out of the 4 port of calls missing the best one Grand Turks, I'm sure in everyone's opinion. Wow was my girl pissed. So for starter lets talk about the good because that will take less time, the only two things that were good on the ship was the food and the housekeeping. The food was great and catered to mostly everyone's liking's majority of the people on the ship i spoke to agreed to that except for one individual. I'm a vegetarian and was not limited to the amount of food available to me, just to give you an idea. Now to the cleaning crew these people were amazing they were in my room the minute i left to enjoy an activity on the ship my room was always clean as i got back in other words they were on top of things so that was not an issue for me. Now lets get down to business the bad part i know this is why you are reading this, ok so i was originally suppose to get on the glory but missed the ship special thanks to Delta airlines for turning my 3 hour flight from LGA to MIA to a 7 hour flight i couldnt really think of another airline that could do that there goes a guiness book of world records.So during this nonsense flight we stopped in orlando to get more fuel ( in the same state, i know this joke is just getting started ) I took the opportunity to contact carnival to update them on my situation with the airline and to see if i would still be able to board the ship being that the time was cutting in close. the lady on the line says to me usually when you book the flight thru carnival situations like such usually dont occur uh o really that explains why 20 other passengers on that plane were also getting on that same ship that we missed together, o yeah let me not forget to mention that unlike myself they booked there flight with carnival. So they missed the boat like me and we got placed on another ship with the help of a very nice gentleman name jason who i believe was the manager that worked at the port of mami. That guy was very good and should probably be running that company im sure the people that met him that day said the same. So now we end up on the conquest for a 8 day cruise instead of the glory for a 7 day cruise sounds good rite. Yeah thought you would think so well guess what we spent more days at sea than we actually did making stops, and for those of you who dont understand that in other words we spent 4 days on the ship with no where to go and not so much to do but spending cash for entertainment on the ship that explains why we didnt make it to grand turks i guess because carnival decided well we didnt make enough money so will keep them on the boat instead so the money they planned to spend in grand turks they'll spend it on the ship, good move carnival. Here are some of the great activites that cost on the ship the casino taking photos buying drinks shopping at the stores eating seafood because thats not free. During the whole trip except for the last 2 days this ship was all over the place people did have any balance. The ship seem to be very out dated and not well cared for the pool's especially. Not that it mattered because they were closed most of the time because the ship was unstable and it was raining most of the cruise. My room got downgraded hope i can get some money back for that. If you plan to have alcoholic beverages its like $49 a day each person and according to carnival its unlimited but you only get 15 drinks a day (so much for unlimited ) and you cant share after you pay your money. Soft drinks are 6.50 daily each person FYI. So i decided that i didnt want to get the $49 package so i bought drinks individually and noticed that when i bought the drinks on top of the cost of the drink they put in 15% gratuity on top. Me personally i love to tip but i didnt like the set up you might feel different about that depending on what you are used to. I usually fly to all inclusive resorts and everything is paid for in advance and i usually leave a nice tip for everyone. Just to mention it made things awkward as the waiter brought the receipt over watching you sign it to see if you were gonna add in an additional tip. Made me wonder if they ( waiter ) were actually the ones receiving that gratuity. I hope so. Last but not least alot of the employees looked very unhappy to serve you, dont know why but you shouldnt feel that way when your on vacation. Let me also mention that this was my first and last cruise thanks to carnival for making this the worst vacation I ever had.
