We are sailing on the Carnival Conquest out of New Orleans, now for the questions for the experienced cruise connoisseurs.
4 Adults (Late 30's Early 40's), Active
4 Children: Boys(16, 14), Girls (14, 12)
Jamacia: We are considering taking a taxi to Sunset Beach Resort, the price is right and sounded good until recently they have gotten alot bad reviews on TripAdvisor. We are looking to do a beach break in Jamaica and a stop at Margaritaville. We have looked at halfmoon cay and Rosehall beach(through carnival). Any advice? Idea's, do's, dont's, etc.......
Georgetown GC: We have booked stingray city with Marvins.
Cozumel: Again we are looking for a beach break.... No firm ideas
How does Carnivals "Soda" card work for the kids, $ etc...., Can you consume duty free alcohol onboard, I have heard yes and no?
Hi The soda cards for kids is great, if they drink a lot of soda. All they have to do is ask for what they want, show the card, and that's it. Please keep in mind that Carnaval only has coke products, so if you have a root beer child, or pepsi, you might want to save your money, and let them drink the lemonaide, or fruit punch that is free.
If they drink ALOT of soda....then it is worth it to get the soda card.
all liquor , even duty free liquor is confiscated until the night before you get off the ship.
They deliver it to your room the day before you get off the ship.
Sometimes people get lucky and they are able to smuggle it on board at the ports.
I would reccomend Doctors Cave Beach in Jamaica. We booked an excursion through Barrett Adventures and that is one of the places they took us. We were very pleased with the beach. Very clean no one harrassing you to buy things. We totally enjoyed our day in Montego Bay. Our driver was Donald Gillette and he took us all over the island. He knew a lot about the area and was very friendly. He knew where to take you and where not to take you. We never had to worry about pushy vendors.
