  3. Carnival Conquest
Port variety was excellent. Take the water taxi for $7 (all day pass) to downtown St. Martin for shopping and free beach day. Walk off boat at Grand Turk and go through the Duty Free and turn left. Free pool and Free Beach. Went kayaking and snorkeling in St Kitts. Good experience but not sure it is worth the price charged by the ship. At each port there were local taxi and companies selling the same excursions as the ship but for less money. Ship was clean and well laid out. Lots of dining options. We never ate the buffets so cannot speak to their quality. The Deli sandwich shop was awesome. Also loved the Guy's burgers and Blue Iguana. Seafood shack had a great lobster roll (we ordered butter version). If you like slow steady dining (we do), then eat in the dining room for full service experience. The dining room food was much better than our previous Carnival cruise. Only thing we ordered but didn't like was the fried calamari and the short rib. The rest of the food was spot on. Skip the casino if you don't smoke cigarettes. Very strong odor. Bars will attempt to steer you to a set drink menu of mostly fruity low alcohol drinks that are either $8.50, $9.50 or $11.50 each; however, you can order "normal" drinks from the bar and the prices will vary. Draft beer was $5.75 to $6.75 each. If you are not on the drink plan (cheers), order a double shot for $3 more to avoid paying for two separate drinks at full price. Not a fan of having to walk through the spa to the fitness area. They had the predictable stuff like dance parties, contests and bingo but also added new Hasbro inspired games that added something extra to do. This was the first time in a long time that we actually enjoyed the live dance shows. There were at least 3 full productions that I recall. Epic Rock is a must see. We had such a great time that we have already re-booked the same trip.
