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

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

We had a great time on the Conquest. The embarkation and debarkation were both a breeze, we are platinum on Carnival so we were able to skip the general lines. We both felt the entertainment was above par, thoroughly enjoyed the shows and ... Read more

This ship needs a major overhaul! The theme is so outdated and the decor bordered on tacky. Clashing carpets, walls, colors and decorations and the ceilings were really low. I tried the adult hot tub near the rear of the ship and was ... Read more

My fiance and I had booked this cruise as our first getaway without her children, and for the most part, it didn't disappoint. The ship wasn't full, so we rarely had any issues finding chairs on the deck and hardly ever had to wait on an ... Read more

We are frequenters on NCL but decided to try the Carnival Conquest because of the ports of call (Amber Cove, Santo Domingo, Aruba and Curaçao). Embarkation went smoothly. We were given a boarding group and we probably waited about ... Read more
