We've been cruising for almost 24 years now and we did a cruise with some extended family members on the Conquest for fun. The service was excellent especially in the dining room and the food has definitely improved over the three previous Carnival cruises that we have been on lately. As usual the the cabins were well maintained, clean, and we enjoy the large size of the cabins on Carnival. There weren't very many waiters up on the Lido deck, so we did have to go to bar to get a drink or flag down a passing waiter. I guess the days of hearing Bahama Momma while lying in the sun are gone. The hamburgers at Guy's were fabulous as well as all the foods from the grills.
We skipped going ashore in Grand Caymans since we had been there numerous times before, enjoyed lunch at Pancho's Backyard in Cozumel, enjoyed shopping in Belize City and a relaxing day on the beach in Roatan. The neck and shoulder massages up on the LIdo deck were out of this world as well. The only disappointments that we had was that there wasn't a sail away party when we departed Miami, as the football playoffs took precedent on the big screen up on deck.
Our cabin was on deck 2 and midships, as per Carnival's reputation it was large and spacious and the view from window was unobstructed.
