We chose this cruise for the itinerary (8 night cruise to St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan and Grand Turk). We didn't have high expectations about the ship based on reviews I had read. Embarkation was awful...we got to the pier at ... Read more

We have always been more than satisfied with our previous Carnival cruises, and will definitely do another. Embarkation was smooth, disembarkation was a little slow, but not horrible. We chose early dining and the food in the dining room ... Read more

I've now been on 5 cruises, with this Carnival Conquest being the 5th. I have done two with Princess and two with Royal Caribbean, and those will most likely be the two that I stick with. Let me start off this review by saying that in ... Read more

Why chose this because of the itinerary. This is the first time we have been on Carnival (We went on the NCL Escape last year). It was a very good cruise but it lacked in Entertainment and Food. Also, the ports were ok and the shore ... Read more

As a grandma of 2 pre high school children, I was a bit concerned about our potential ship mates. Approximately a 1/4 to a 1/3 of the ship were indeed aged 18-23. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not witness any rowdiness-just a lot ... Read more

Looking for a cruise scheduled for my son's birthday that stopped at Grand Turk. This one had good rates for a balcony at the time I booked. Nothing was terrible, except for the (lack of) exercise classes. But when I go on a cruise ... Read more

We've just returned from our 6 day cruise on the Conquest. If I could, I would have given it a 2.5 out of 5. We chose my time dining, which we really liked the flexibility of. We liked going when we were ready, and not forced to a fixed ... Read more

My sister & my mother joined me. We were all in one room (category 8C - balcony stateroom). It was definitely adequate for the 3 of us. The bathroom is well-designed to utilize the space & there is more than enough storage for ... Read more

The embarkation and debarkation were the smoothest we've experienced at Port Everglades. The first two to three days were consistently rocky due to high seas but we tolerated it well and didn't let it interfere with our fun. I'm sure ... Read more

Itinerary was good and really enjoyed the Premiere gifts and special attention. Liked the Conquest overall even with it's age. Embarkation and debarkation went very smooth. We had 2 visits in the Steakhouse and were pleasantly ... Read more

This was my 4th cruise on Carnival. We chose this cruise because of the ports. Hadn't ever been to Grand Turks or Amber Cove. Neither one of us are sun worshipers so the first port of Half Moon Cay was a waste of time in the long tendering ... Read more

We were actually on Carnival Conquest for back-to-back cruises. Both weeks had itineraries we enjoy with lots of beach time. The ship is decorated beautifully and tastefully with a French artist theme. The entertainers were superb. ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it worked out best for our group of 10. Embarkation went well and we were drinking beer within 90 minutes of getting to the port. The best part of our cruise were the ports and the company of our group. The ... Read more

Curacao and Aruba were the selling points of choosing this cruise. 3 adult couples embarked effortlessly. We only had to wait about an hour and a half arriving way before boarding began due to flight schedule. Crew was friendly and cabin ... Read more

We choose the Conquest because of the 8-day itinerary, which took us to Grand Turk, La Romana, Curacao, and Aruba. After driving to Fort Lauderdale, we parked the car in the Park n Go, on Eller Drive, just off the interstate (best ... Read more

We have travelled on a few cruise lines, including Carnival, in the past and had an open mind going in, but the crowd on this ship was very rough around the edges. I was alone with my child during the safety briefing and was actually ... Read more

I felt that the carnival conquest wasn't very good. I didn't feel that my experience sailing on the carnival conquest was very fun and it didn't meet my expectations of what I would be looking for while on a cruise. I felt that there ... Read more
