Fun Family Cruise on Carnival Conquest
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We stayed on deck 10. Our rooms were close to the lido deck. The room was small but we had a balcony. It was a family trip. We found the room to be clean and the lady who cleaned our room did a great job and we took good care of her. Loved all the towel animals.
The food was good but not what I would call great, but there was enough variety so that we could always find something we liked. We had to take the early seating because we booked the cruise late and that was not great . Next time late seating! We were seated with another family who we got on with well and shared many laughs throughout so that was a bonus. We may join them on a future cruise..
There was plenty of activities to keep our kids busy throughout and the night time shows were enjoyable for all of us. I particularly loved the piano bar. The kids fell in love with most all of the entertainment and activity staff. My husband was pushed to participate an we all enjoyed watching him embarrass More himself on stage. Memories of a lifetime!
You need to get up very early if you want to get decent seats on the deck.
Though we did not get off the ship in Roatan, we did have fun in the ports of Cozumel and Belize. Fun shore tours in both locations.
All in all it was a great vacation. The Conquest is an older ship but well taken care of. Dollar for dollar we got an amazing deal and recommend it highly for a great family vacation.

What a great adventure!
Great Island Tour with good food and snorkeling!
Swimming with Dolphins
Very expensive.... This was our splurge for the trip and we enjoyed it, but it is expensive for what you get.
