Stepping onto Carnival Conquest is a bit like stepping into a 19th-century French Impressionist's dreamscape. Illuminated Murano-glass flower sculptures adorn the ceilings, and hand-painted replicas of Degas' ...

This was our 4th cruise... and first on Carnival. We've cruised Royal Caribbean in the past. I have to say service was excellent from our room steward. Nice size for a window cabin. Dining room service was slow and food was ... Read more

This is our 2nd cruise. We really enjoyed this cruise with our 7 y.o. daughter. We arrived at the port at 11:00 the day of embarkation which was a good idea as they started boarding the ship at 12h30-12h45. We got on the ship early ... Read more

Last year we took an 8 night Carnival Breeze Eastern Caribbean cruise, so some of this review will be in comparison to that one. Overall, we had a great time and were happy with the somewhat older Conquest. We booked this as a last ... Read more

Got off a wonderful cruise to Key West, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. This was our ninth cruise, all with Carnival. We have been on every other Conquest class ship, so now we can say we've seen them all. We flew in the night before and ... Read more

This was my second time on board the Conquest in a little over a year. My 8th cruise overall between Carnival and Holland America. This cruise was ok, but by no means stellar. The last time I had been on the Conquest it was a shock as to ... Read more

Food was mediocre at best; hate the new American menu and really miss some of my fave lunches in the MDR. Brunch - blah!!! Volume turned up waaaay too loud in all venues so we skipped those entertainment opportunities, all of them. ... Read more

We flew into FLL and used the Carnival transfer to the port, only because we flew in the same day as departure. We were off our plane by 11:00 AM and were on the ship, luggage in cabin and eating lunch on the Lido by 1:00 PM. The Muster ... Read more

We've gone on many Carnival cruises and this was by far our least favorite - not horrible, but just didn't feel like Carnival quality. When we walked into the atrium on embarkation day (after the easiest embarkation process EVER..from ... Read more

I was just on my 7th Carnival cruise (1 each Princess, NCL and RCL) having taken a few years off and I can see that Carnival has tried to make things a little more relaxed, ex. not a tie in sight, not on the Maître 'D, the Captain, ... Read more

If you are a slow patient person then this ship is for you. Breakfast at 7AM, really I'm up at six and waiting. Not enough loungers, because there is no room for anymore. On day 2 I could not find a chair to sit on. People would get the ... Read more

It has been 30 years since I last sailed Carnival but I wouldn't leave it that long again. We really enjoyed ourselves. There were all ages on this ship. Young and old. We had a balcony cabin. Room was good and the bed comfy. Shower was ... Read more

My husband and I sailed together. We stayed at the Hyatt Place 17th street the night before. Very pricy but good location. Great shuttle service from airport to hotel and cruise port in the morning. Hotel across street from grocery and ... Read more

We have been on several cruises 2 with carnival and one with RC. This Cruise was just ok, mainly because we were on an older ship which did not have much to offer families. The cabin was in need of refurbishment for sure. Our sofa in the ... Read more

We booked this cruise as a post holiday getaway. We got a pretty good rate and were overall satisfied with the cruise. Having been on other cruise lines (RC and NCL) I knew Carnival would not be the same experience, but went for a less ... Read more

I have taken many great cruises with Carnival and we did enjoy this cruise. However, money cutting changes are evident such as shorter dining hours like the buffet having limited hours, the Burger restaurant closing at 6 and the burrito ... Read more

This was my 8th Carnival cruise, and I keep going on Carnival cruises because usually they are a lot of fun. I particularly enjoy the dancing during Sail away and on sea days. I was very disappointed this trip because they had a ... Read more

My wife and I went on this cruise for relaxing and we got that. We were able to find somewhere to read, smoke, drink, and eat every day. The food was good (not fantastic by any stretch). The boat was old, and dated. Though the ... Read more

Flew to FLL from EWR on 1/16/16, and stayed at Motel 6. Took a shuttle from the motel at 10 AM. Arrived at the cruise terminal at 10:30 AM. They started boarding the ship at 11:00 AM. We had FTTF and was on board at about 11:30, got ... Read more

This was the first-ever cruise for two of us (a 37 and 35-year-old couple). We spent two nights in Fort Lauderdale prior to the cruise, plus two nights in Fort Lauderdale after the cruise as well. We rented a car from Alamo at Fort ... Read more

I am shocked that people actually consider a cruise a vacation. From start to finish, the whole thing was stressful. In order to get on the boat, you have to wait in multiple long lines and then wait until your # is called to board the ... Read more

We took a taxi from FLL airport, cheaper than Carnival's transport. Ride to and from the ship were both under $20. Getting on the ship was quick and easy. They called us by the number they put on our tickets when we checked in at ... Read more

Our trip was very extraordinary in more ways than one. Food was excellent. Better than past cruises. Ports were all good. Weather was more than excellent. However, volume of every performance on ship was loud enough to raise the ... Read more
