Good starter cruise, if you are not picky
Embarkation: New Orleans
The food is good, but be prepared to wait for that as well. Often times the line is incredibly long. For no known reason, the food stations are shut down during peak hours. Then you have to go find another station with an incredibly long line. If you are a foody, you will be disappointed. The food is good, not great. What they call Cherries Jubilee is just warmed cherry pie filling.
Most importantly, there are way too many people on this ship. Wherever you go, there are hundreds of people. Even at 11 at night, there is nowhere to go where you can be alone. There are always lots of people around and lots of teens.
Overall, if you have never been on a cruise, this one is cheap and not too bad. I will not go on this one again. I would rather save up and pay for a little more service and a little more privacy. Less
Cabin review: 4D Interior
If you are on the first floor of the Conquest, you will hear the engines all night. They are loud on the lower deck. The rooms are very small. We had 4 people in our cabin. The beds that drop out of the ceiling are neat. My kids loved them. But someone hit their head on them at least once a day. And they are hard metal. Which hurts a lot.Read All Interior (4D) Reviews >>
