With the exception of my daughter's wedding at Firefly in Jamaica, which was amazing, this had to be one of the worse cruises I have taken in all the years of cruising. The check-in went smoothly after a considerable wait. Our cabin was ... Read more

Carnival is the only cruise I actually would consider (until now). Every cruise to date has been amazing and all with Carnival. The Conquest was a huge let down. Of course we all know the food is a big deal on a cruise? well the ... Read more

We were celebrating our 25 Wedding Anniversary, so we opted for an Ocean Suite on this cruise. We had priority boarding, and pretty much walked right onto the ship after parking the car. It was smooth, and quick. The Conquest is a ... Read more

liked the itinerary, departure port and date. Lovely staff, energetic cruise director. Food was good. It was kind of a bummer that there were nights that multiple great entrees were offered on the same night-like prime rib and ... Read more

The ship is definitely an older one, but kept up very well, it's going in to be upgraded in the fall of 2017, so I'm sure it will be brought up-to-date then, but ut was still a fun ship! Our cabin was typical, great stewardess (Richel, I ... Read more

This was our first Carnival cruise in many years and our first cruise after devastating health problems, so I was a bit apprehensive about taking this cruise. We usually sail with Royal Caribbean, but our last experience aboard the ... Read more

I am a 3rd-timer with Carnival. Last trip was a while back, but my husband and I had the privilege of cruising on the Freedom in 2009, just 2 years after it's inaugural sail in 2007. Negative: The Conquest (built in 2002 or 2003) by stark ... Read more

This was my second cruise, my friend's 30th and my son's first. Needless to say, we were extremely dissapointed. We had priority boarding and that line was non-existent. We had to go around the crowds of people to get to the front. We ... Read more

We chose this 6-night cruise as a relaxa-cruise -- three relaxing, "beach day" ports with minimal hassles, no pushy "salespeople" like at Nassau, etc. It was me, my friend John, and his wife Kathy all sharing an ... Read more
