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

We had been on the Conquest a few years ago so we had no problems returning for this itinerary - Grand Turks, La Romana, Curacoa, Aruba. Embarkation was better than our last experience in Miami. Ship seemed clean, cabins clean, all in ... Read more

The embarkation process took nearly 2 hours standing in line walking back and forth in queues like an amusement park roller coaster waiting line. We arrived exactly when we were told so that we could do what we were told because this was ... Read more

Check-in was fast and easy. We were surprised to find that there were numerous areas where additional charges applied for food. In the past, there were only one to two restaurants that charged extra. The main dining room was cramped and ... Read more
