    Looking forward to Conquest reviews!!

    Yeah, just turn the Fog lights on, put her in drive and take off. Don't be an idiot. On one expects the ship to leave in the fog. Address the complaint. So I would think they could have developed a plan for this. Also, people were standing in line for up to 5 hours during the embarkment. There was no water or food for these people even for purchase. Don't pass the buck. Carnival and the Port Authority work in partnership during the embarkation present. Improvements can and should be made. As for the food and water I'd like to see how many people would be willing to lose their place I line to go get something to eat. Especially after already waiting in line for a couple hours. Carnival and the Port Authorities could work together to improve this situation. A few things about the port situation. I check the weather report for Dec 12th and 13th in the Grand Caymans. On Dec 12th @ 4:00 EST Olga was down graded to a depression and was expected to dissipate. On Dec 13th there was on mention of the depression. Also, deviations to itineraries are normal for Cruise Lines and as for the Dec 9th cruise Carnival know Subtropical storm Olga formed over the Virgin Islands on Monday Dec 10th. Conquest was still in port at Galveston and a contingency plan could have been made for an alternative port could have been lined up in case the Grand Caymans were Inaccessible or unsafe. The whole itinerary situation was more a matter of frustration then anything. I had look long and hard for a cruise at the right time and to right places and to miss my two primary ports of call was extremely disappointing. I booked a western Caribbean cruise and ending up with a Mexican one. It is very frustrating to work hard on planning and booking a trip and then have no say after that. That said, the cruise was nice and the staff great. My fiancé and I continue to make the best of it as we could. We enjoyed the food, weather, Cozumel and the dancers. They really put on a great show. It is easy to pass the buck and say it is not my fault, but improvement can and needs to be made. Also, if you are going to reply to a post be smart about it and not a smart-ass.

    I am sure Carnival has had to deal with fog before. So I would think they could have developed a plan for this. Also, people were standing in line for up to 5 hours during the embarkment. There was no water or food for these people even for purchase. Question: Were we the only Cruise Line the was not able to make port in the Grand Caymans on Thursday the 13th? Also the weather serve bulletin on Wed 12th 4:00pm EST. Reported the Ogla was down graded to a depression and expect to dissipate over the next few hours. Was the lady magician part of the regular entertainment or were we just told she was brought in especially for our cruise? Also, I wasn't very impressed with her. You could see where some the people were hidding or appearing from. If the Cruise Line knew there was a Tropical storm heading our way. Why not head for Belize first then Cozumel. I think people Think people would have been far more happy about that port then Progesso. OK that said, the cruise was pretty good. Great weather on board and the staff was great. I on the other hand feel there procedures for handling inconeviences leaves something to be desired. Also, Just because somebody tells you something to ease your flustration does not necessarily make it true. Check thing out before you start praising the Cruise Line.
