Overall the Conquest ship is old and outdated. Apparently renovations were completed in 2012. The only places that had the appearance of a remodel were the spa and gym! The comedy shows were good for adults and the other adult activities were mediocre. There were very few teen related activities on board. Pools were over crowded, and buffet lines were as well. The food was mediocre and the lines for food and etc were horrible! The onboarding process was confusing and carnival should re-think this a little more. Pay someone to create operational efficiency flows for this process. We had no clue where to go once arriving at the Miami port, there were no clear instructions outside the port on where to go and where to park, traffic was horrible at the unloading spot and the staff were not friendly. Upon entrance to the port things moved a lot smoother. The same was true for exiting the ship. Great guides inside but as soon as you were outside the port you were on your own!

Where to begin. This was my first time cruising with Carnival and may be my last. The boarding process was quicker than other ships I’ve been on. The sail away party was a good time out on the deck. This ship was a good time for kids, which is why I give it more than one star. The food situation was terrible. The buffet served the same few items each day and often only one side was open. The burger joint was okay but only open for lunch time. The Barbecue restaurant was advertised as open during lunch but in fact was never open. The pizza pirate was good but the lines were always long. One night every water machine was closed down but one to fill up a cup. We weren’t notified that if we didn’t stand in the long line to get passes to the island we would have to wait until noon to go over, which left us with only 3 hours to spend there. The ship often smelled of sewage inside and out. Very busy and overcrowded, and often waited way too long for an elevator as the food was on deck 9 and we were on a much lower level. Carlos did a nice job cleaning our cabin. A lot of employees seemed overworked and not friendly. Could not use the basketball court or mini golf as they were changed and locked for a private group to use. We were going to book a carnival cruise next spring, but after this cruise we chose to go with Norwegian instead.

First of all we came home with covid from the ship. The food was awful. 5 people threw up in the hallways in the second day. The staff was not what we experienced in the past. Kids are unsupervised. Entertainment was poor. Marijuana smoke around every corner. All in all worst cruise ever.

The whole time our room smelled like marijuana and we reported this but they couldn’t do anything. The pools were very small and not nearly enough to accommodate the amount of people. They looked gross. There are insane lines everywhere all the time. Couldn’t get to guest services. Not enough shuttles for excursions until 11 am which we could only enjoy the island for 3 hours because the last shuttle to the ship was at 3pm. We waited a whole hour to get in the shuttle as well. It didn’t feel like a vacation at all, we were made to feel like cash cows, not even sodas were free. Every corner they try to sell you something. Gym classes were paid, Bingo was a total rip off. We paid $130 for internet and we didn’t get any signal in the room. We also reported this but they couldn’t do anything.

WORST VACATION OF MY LIFE!!! The rudest people I’ve ever encountered on any vacation - and yes, I’m talking about the staff. No one helps first time cruisers understand what’s going on or how to do anything. The food sucks and unless you’re an alcoholic gambler, there’s nothing for you to do. Half Moon Cay had bandaids and old diabetic needle devices laying around on the sand. Nassau was the only part that was tolerable and that’s because we finally got away from Carnival and their staff. I literally would have rather been at work. If someone offered me a free cruise on Carnival plus $10,000, I wouldn’t do it again.
