Carnival Conquest Cruise Review by palex19
- Sail Date: May 2015
- Destination: Southern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Aft-View Extended Balcony
Shows and comedy were pretty good, above average for sure. Cabin steward and other staff I encountered was very good, except for an female member of the excursion staff which had a real negative attitude. They did a terrible (actually no) job of explaining exactly what will happen once we all leave the Toulouse theater meeting point to go on a catamaran excursion. Instructions on how to use a snorkel/fins...? Nada. Safety information? Nada.
After visiting just about every Caribbean island during the last 20 years I must say that I found the Dominical Republic to be the most diverse and interesting. Most of the others are just flat and pretty unimpressive besides the beach and ocean.

SnorkelingThis is a catamaran and snorkel trip, no beach stop contrary to some advertising. You must feel comfortable swimming / snorkeling in water 15ft and 50 ft (WWII wreck) deep. There is NO diver/lifeguard in the water with the tourists if something goes wrong.View All 163 Snorkeling Reviews
Grand TurkWalk off the boat and you're on the beach! Plenty of beach chairs without charge (not sure if supplied by the Margaritaville bar) and bathroom facilities.View All 2,098 Grand Turk Cruise Port Reviews

Bayahiba resort tourMore a 4 star than the advertised 5 star resort (Be Live Hotel). But fun trip and drinks are included. Somewhat short (3.5 hours total incl. 20 min bus ride each way).View All 12,794 Bayahiba resort tour Reviews
