Trip Report A Disappointing Conquest

Jump to last reply

While the rest of the country is suffering through an extended winter it is another beautiful and sunny day in South Florida as I walk towards the Port Of Miami.

We are about to set sail on another “Spring Break Cruise” this time on Carnival Conquest with ports of call in Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Belize and Mahogany Bay, Honduras.

A little after 5pm we begin our sail away from the Port Of Miami and the Lido deck is literally jumping as I watch the Carnival Breeze and the Miami skyline go by. It's about two days of sailing before we reach our first port of call and this gives us an opportunity to explore the Conquest.

From a “Whoop There It Is” Gender Competition to laughing at the Punchliner Comedy to listening to karaoke then dancing around an empty beer can on the disco floor, our first night on the Conquest is a bit of fun.

A “Fun Day At Sea” is where the disappointment begins. A weak list of entertaining activities in the Fun Times and having to watch employees that seem less than enthusiastic in doing their job we soon realize the Conquest may not be a “Fun Ship”.

However, after listening to a few “Tarzan” calls during the day and sailing under a full moon at night we know we are going to have an enjoyable time even with our disappointments so far.
