Ship Facts: Carnival Conquest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Conquest Deck Plans
Conquest...a blast as always!
Last 4 cruises we have driven to the port. This eliminates luggage fees, lost luggage,airport hassle, delays, etc. and since we are retired we are really not on any time schedule. We drove from Dallas to NOLA, took about 9 hours. This was the weekend after hurricane Issac, so we were lucky to get a room at a Quality Inn, which was very clean and accommodating. We could also leave our vehicle there for the duration of the cruise.

Been on the Conquest twice out of Galveston and we love the ship. She needs some TLC and we are happy she goes in for refit this month. We had a balcony cabin on the Lido hubby loves to get up early and go right to the breakfast buffet. The cabin was great and the balcony lovely.

Thought all of the staff was very welcoming and had no problems with anyone...from our cabin steward to the casino staff, dining room, steakhouse, etc. excellent. Room service was also long wait and we ordered all different times of the day.

We stopped in Key West, Freeport and Nassau. We had not been to those ports in a long time and this was one reason we chose this cruise. Our only disappointment was with our excursion out of Freeport. We did the Historical Windjammer Sailing and would not do it or recommend it again. I realize they said there was no wind that day, but we expected more for our money. At the other ports we shopped and partied and had a great time.

We met a lot of great people on this cruise and intend to keep in touch with a few.

Embarkation and debarkation were both pretty smooth. The terminal is quite smaller than Galvestion,Texas but staff handled it well.

As I said in the beginning...Conquest...a blast as always!
