Ship Facts: Carnival Conquest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Conquest Deck Plans
Carnival Conquest - Western Caribbean
We were three couples from London, Ontario Canada that decided to cruise together, and we surely enjoyed this wonderful cruise out of Galveston, Texas. We flew into the Bush International Airport in Houston arriving at 8:00 pm, claimed our bags, and got on the hotel shuttle van. We did a pre-cruise night at the Crown Plaza Hotel near the airport. This was a good choice for our Houston stay. We stayed in Houston because of our arrival time into Houston, and because of the higher cost of the rooms in Galveston. After checking into our hotel, we enjoyed a lite dinner in the restaurant at the hotel. This hotel give us a great rates on our rooms, they give us the "cruiser's special".

The morning of our cruise we boarded the shuttle van which we had pre-arranged for two month prior to our Houston arrival, We learned about this service by reading good things about this service in different cruise reviews. This shuttle was another great choice we made in preparation for our cruise. Our driver was awesome , he gave us a wealth of information about Houston and Galveston all the while driving us to our ship in Galveston.

The cruise terminal in Galveston is 80 miles from the Houston airport. For first time visitors to Texas like us, we truly appreciated our driver's insight. This service also returned us the airport on the return from our cruise. This was great, while everyone else from the cruise was fighting to board the cruise line's buses or shared the ride shuttles and taxis. Our driver picked us up curbside at the terminal within minutes of our disembarkation. This driver is a pro.

Now about the Carnival "Conquest". My wife and I loved this ship. This is truly a big ship. It's a beautiful ship, and well care for in every aspect. This was a totally relaxing cruise which is what we were looking for in a cruise. The Conquest is a beauty from bow to stern, and she is very "user friendly." The itinerary was just right for us and our friends. This was one of the most relaxing and yet fun cruises my wife and I have taken and we spent a great deal of our time aboard the ship, First time cruisers will enjoy the "Conquest" because of its blend of ports and days at sea.

Everything on the "Conquest" was a pleasure from our cabin, our balcony, the food, casino, total relaxation, the very friendly and efficient staff and crew and yes, even the walking. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Ports included Jamaica (Montego Bay), Grand Cayman and Cozumel. This was a wonderful cruise the six of us enjoyed thoroughly.

We would recommend it to anyone, especially those wanting to cruise out of the Galveston/Houston area. You will get your money's worth and more.Looking for a great cruise, do on the Carnival "Conquest", if your looking for a good dependable shuttle service to drive you to and from your ship, call Mr. L. J. Cormier at Texas Cruise Ship Shuttle in Houston at 281 443 4430.
