  3. Carnival Conquest
I knew the ship was older, refurbished, when booking but it was the itinerary that was most attractive--Southern Carib, 8 days. Shocked to find only 1 standard US elec outlet in the stateroom. All other elec outlets were European style. The ship must have been built for a different market and moved to North America later. So bring a converter! FORMAL DINING We could never get in and out in less than 2 hours. Service was consistently slow, even at the end of the week when most people decided to forgo dining room. The only good thing about the dining room was Manu, a roving magician. Amazing card tricks and very entertaining. He hit our table two times during the week. ENTERTAINMENT Not as good as Vista a year before. Joanne the Piano Bar Entertainer is amazing and funny and best talent on the ship. EXCURSIONS Snorkeling in Aruba, booked outside Carnival system directly with vendor, located right near port. Try Full Throttle in Aruba, especially if you like to be in a small boat that goes FAST.
