PostSubject: Back from Conquest - Any Questions?   Sun Mar 22, 2009 6:58 pm

Key West, Bahamas itinerary.

It was great and the crew were wonderful..............the food was terrific-
only drawback is the undisciplined kids running amuck and acting stupid - screaming in the halls and in general, acting like they own the ship. Lots of drunk kids (and I do mean KIDS) - we passed one in the hall and he had just thrown up IN THE HALL in front of us and all his friends were laughing and they just went on like nothing happened.

On Friday, our ship stopped in the middle of the ocean and coast guard arrived to take a person off the ship and transport them to a hospital in Key West. We were stopped about 15 minutes or so and back on our way. We never heard anything more.

On deck Sunday afternoon, I helped a woman who passed out on deck. She had had 6 drinks (alcohol), no food and had been in the sun the whole day. She couldn't speak clearly (slurred speech). Her eyes were dilated all the way and then went to pinpoint. The nurse came and her blood pressure was 100/60.

People, DRINK WATER!!! Don't dehydrate and get yourself into trouble.

Parents, please advise your kids that screaming in the halls (or anywhere) is unacceptable! Also, running on deck is dangerous. I was constantly run into by kids. Yes, I know it was spring break, but I have cruised three other cruises during spring break and it was NEVER this bad.

Other than those things, it was all good!!! It did rain in Freeport and in Nassau, but we still had fun!!!

Hi and welcome back. I will be doing the same itinerary on Conquest this Sept and looking forward to it. Been to those ports, but only leaving from Florida, never from Galveston on Conquest.

The only running in the halls children I encountered were once on Rhapsody, other than that, I'v been lucky. Sorry you encountered it.

I went out and told them that some people are sleeping and they shouldn't be yelling in the halls, regardless. They went and told mamma but I don't care. Mamma never came to see me. Smile

Good for you, Carole!

Were the drunks college-aged? I booked my cousin and a bunch of his friends on the Norwegian Majesty for their Spring Break the week of 3/7. I have more leaving on the Enchantment of the Seas the week of 3/29. Good advice about drinking!

there were older kids that were drunk, but these were about 16 or so. Very sad.
Didn't ruin MY vacation but I am sure they will have and did have, headaches. Smile

on the holiday cruise we had 10-11 year olds that weren't drunk but just nasty little s.o.b.'s. they took the decorations off peoples doors. some of them they just stomped on and left them at the doors. the lady next to us had a pad and pen stuck to her door and they would write nasty disgusting notes on it. they were just little animals. running all over knocking into you and pushing all the elevator buttons and running. i have a pretty sailor type mouth when i want and i couldn't believe the way these kids talked. remember the good old days when you could have grabbed them by the scruff of the neck and brought them back to their parents and their parents would have beat the crap out of them? no more.
