Ship Facts: Carnival Conquest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Conquest Deck Plans
Cruise 2008
We sailed out of Houston because Ike destroyed Galveston. Carnival did pretty well considering the last minute changes. Embarkation was the usual hectic experience, (they probably all are). The Port is a little hard to find and is way off the beaten path in a very unattractive area.

On board the ship is showing its age. Carpet is in bad shape the hallways reek of smoke, but the cabins are nice and clean. This is our second sailing on the Conquest, and it really needs refurbishing. The outside of the ship looks like a rust bucket.

The buffet breakfast is okay, but we mainly ate in the main dinning rooms. The lunch buffet is horrible, the food either cold or too tuff to eat. The Monet dining food is very good and wait staff are outstanding.

Shore excursions went well but I will never visit Jamaica again. Just a personal opinion, but have been there twice and except for the water it is one of the most awful countries I have ever visited. It is just a very poor nation, and if you enjoy seeing slums and depressed people you are in for a treat.

Grand Cayman was great and our favorite stop. Cozumel was okay just did some shopping.

All in all not a bad cruise experience considering we were on the first Carnival cruise out of Houston after Ike. Our next cruise destination will either be Alaska or Hawaii, but will probably look at another cruise line.
