Carnival Conquest Cruise Review by rlhstatic: The Conquest
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
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 More 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. Less

Cabin review: 6B2434 Ocean View
Insufficient personal drawer. The top drawer was taken up by permanent installation of hair dryer equipment. Otherwise it was a nice room. The windows were dirty on the outside making it impossible to take pictures through. The location of this room was noisy from engine noise. The room was clean and well cared for.Read All Ocean View (6B) Reviews >>
