Many reasons,first the dirtiness of the ship everywhere.. quality of the food and presentation, extremely de organized when exiting the ship, to much noise that I couldn’t sleep on the 3 nights spent there, the drinks were terrible.. only ice..the pool were very dirty I couldn’t get in, almost everyone had a bad attitude you can tell there is lack of management.. people and kids all night long running on the hallways..terrible experience overall.. the only positive thing i will say is the steak house definitely recommended

My teenage daughter and I sailed in early January. It was a 3 day cruise to Nassau. Our room steward was phenomenal. We mentioned how much we loved the towel animals and he surprised us on the day we were in Nassau with a whole zoo! The servers on the lido deck all kept the drinks coming. (Miss Holly would you like another Miami Vice?) The dining room service was great with the exception of the sea day brunch (they were very slow that morning). The ship is small and older, but I found it easier to navigate. We will be returning to the Conquest this fall and I can't wait!

This was our family's first time going on a cruise. Our cruise was a four night Western Bahamas cruise to Half Moon Cay and Nassau. My kids, ages 13 and 14, stayed in the same cabin as us in a balcony cabin. The balcony cabin was small, and we were worried about how the kids were going to sleep with us in the cabin. Fortunately, the steward came by soon afterwards and explained that he would lower the bunk bed and put blankets and comforters on the beds. This arrangement actually worked out very well, and the kids were very comfortable. Given that we would've had to pay double if we wanted two staterooms, we're pretty happy how well the cabin worked for the four of us. The Carnival Conquest ship is older, but had a small swimming pool, along with two smaller spas. It also has a slide that the kids (and some adults) can slide on. The pool was constantly in use, and there were always a lot of people in it. Definitely no swimming, more like standing and wading. The deck had quite a few chaise lounges, but they were always in use. Very busy place, we never actually went into the pool because of how many people were always in it. They play movies at night on the deck, which was nice. The bars on the top deck were also busy, but the bartenders were pretty quick and the drinks were done well. We didn't opt for the booze packages, but we did get the Bubbles (soda and tea) package. Getting soda's meant having to go the bar, so the kids really didn't drink as many soda's as they wanted to. I guess that's a good thing. The buffet has a pretty tasty breakfast (with made to order omelets and eggs). The lunch and dinner were good, but the specialty food stands (such as the taco and hamburger stands) are much better. Keep in mind that the taco, sushi and BBQ stands close at 2:30 PM, they are not available for dinner. The dinner restaurant is excellent, and you really should go to each of those sit down dinners. Waiters are attentive, and the food is excellent. The portions are little small, but the waiters will bring extra appetizers and bread if you ask them. Some food items (such as the sushi boat, lobster tail, or ribeye steak) come from their other restaurants and carry and extra $23 charge. The casino and shows were fine, though the Deck 3 Forward theater is LOUD. The speakers are on the balcony level (accessible via Deck 4), so if you're sensitive to loud music, head for the first floor to get some relief. The biggest complaint we had was that our kids really didn't have much to do. The arcade can only entertain kids for so long, and the kid's clubs (the Circle O) has some computers with video games loaded up along with a big screen TV, but our kids didn't seem too interested. We did opt for the Premium WIFI, and I'm glad we did. You can (barely) watch YouTube, but at least it provided some entertainment for the wife and kids when we wanted to rest in the cabin. Our first day (Day 2 of the trip) was stormy, and apparently quite a few people got seasick (including me, and I'm an experience SCUBA diver). The onboard shops sold out of the sea sickness medication, so be sure to bring your own, even if you "never" get seasick. Half Moon Cay was the highpoint of the trip. Make sure you purchase the Clamshell shelter ahead of time if you want some shade. There are NO umbrellas on the beach, and several people were trying to get the clamshells when they had sold out days before the cruise started. The BBQ lunch is excellent (and free), make sure you try the Jerk Chicken. Soda's and drinks are very pricey, but you can use your Sail Card to charge it, so no need to bring cash. Don't bother bringing snorkeling gear, there's really not much to see other than a clean sandy bottom and few fish running around. Nassau, on the other hand, was not that impressive. All the excursions are very pricey ($200 / person) for only five hours of free time before you need to start heading back to the ship. We did the Dolphins Encounter excursion that included a lunch, since it was the cheapest excursion (other then just heading into town). The buffet lunch was decent (though not great by any stretch of the imagination), and the lagoon was nice, but no where near as nice as Half Moon Cays. The island staff was friendly, but clearly overworked. The Dolphin encounter was fun, but we felt sorry for how hard the dolphins seemed to be working. No cameras are allowed during the encounter, they provide a free locker to store them while you pose with the dolphin. We had to board soon after lunch (around 1:30 PM) for our return trip to the ship. Given how reasonable the cruise price was (less then HALF of Royal Caribbean and Disney Cruises), I have to say that this was a bargain. I've spent more money just on plane tickets on our previous family vacations, so this was really nice. Keep your expectations in line with how much you paid, and you won't be disappointed.

terrible service, the drink system is terrible, line for everything, The personal at bars was very rude, few word: you have to drink when they said, one hour in line for the front desk, they made mistake put my room on other people names, make another hour line on the front desk to change the key, etc, etc, etc. AND EVERYBODY USED SAME FRASE: "I AM SORRY", never again, never. Ohhh, and you need the cruise App, if not, you by yourself, no information around. I wrote a big complain to the cruise line, knowing that they don't care people opinions.

What a great experience for the first time on a cruise. Director Lawerence (fun squad) does an amazing job. Food is great, drinks were awesome (recommend getting the cheers package) download the app before the cruise. It’s a great get away and experience a cruise trip. Went to Bimini, key west, and Cozumel all great experiences. Both on the ship and the excursion booking with carnival is awesome. The crew/family on the ship will take care of you. A lot of kids activities. Lots of bar with good drinks, food is great, I recommend the tacos, and unlimited ice cream (soft serve/yogurt)
