The ship was old and the suite we were in 7322 had stained dirty carpet. The leather day bed was broken, there was a filthy "coverlet" on the bed and the sheets and towels were threadbare. The inside of the drawers were stained, the light bulbs in the changing area were out and the tub couldn't be cleaned no matter how hard the steward tried. The furniture was dented and scratched and the dust ruffle looked like it had never, ever been cleaned. The TV had seven channels trying to sell me Carnival related items/activities and the movies were pay-per-view. I do have photographs which I will gladly send to you but my advice would be to have your officers take five thousand dollars out of their pay for the "privilege" of spending their weeks vacation in suite 7322 on the Carnival Conquest. Then send them a survey to see how their holiday was and how much they enjoyed their cruise!
Our cabin was a junior suite, very forward on the ship. Our balcony was a little longer than normal, but not what I would consider spacious. It also was not terribly private, given the Captain's Suite next door had a deck overlooking our balcony. Our cabin was very comfortable, and the bathroom was relatively spacious, with a tub and double sinks.
