Ship Facts: Carnival Conquest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Conquest Deck Plans
The Conquest
My wife and I set out for a restful pre-summer cruise. This was our first time on a Carnival ship.

First, we learned that the Conquest is a very confusing ship to walk-around on. "Ya can't get there from here" became our un-funny joke.

We never did find a deck which permitted us to go from the bow to the stern without changing decks. Nowhere was information given to show how to navigate the ship. Even the outer side lounging areas only had one entry door location (mid-ship). We became grateful to have out stateroom in the stern, below the dining lounge. (we understand how to use an elevator and stairs)

We also learned that the Carnival Conquest caters to the young and families. Screaming children running full blast EVERYWHERE ! Don't try to get around the line-dance competition to the restaurant.

And EVERYTHING was LOUD ! Including the Theater, which is a huge screen, on the open pool deck. No one on that ship knows what the volume control is for, on the amplifier.

I am convinced that this ship is perfect for the very young, but not for seniors.

I will be more careful next time, to avoid cruising on holidays, and on lines that cater to young families.

I must also say that the ship's employees were as good as it gets. The food was "fine dining" at its best, everywhere on board.
