Ship Facts: Carnival Conquest Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Conquest Deck Plans
New Years Cruise and 20th Wedding Anniversay
What a large and beautiful ship. Cruised over the New Years holiday with 3 kids, ages 2,10 and 13. We had to get 2 rooms but had the adjoining and it was nice to have all the space. Embarkation was a breeze and much easier than we thought. Was on board within 45 minutes. We choose to drive down the day before the cruise and stayed at the Holiday Inn on the Beach. They provided shuttle service to and from the pier. This was nice not worry about parking at the pier, highly recommend it.

The Conquest is a beautiful ship! Plenty of activities for all of us. The older kids did do some of the Camp Carnival activities but mainly in the evenings after dinner. Lido deck was a fun place to hang out and enjoy the weather but does get crowded and sometimes hard to get chairs. The kids very much enjoyed karaoke nights.

Our dining room waiters were friendly and food was good. Buffets were okay, not bad, just not incredible. The Sandwich and Burger buffets at the back of Lido deck were the best.

Shows were good but nothing really wowed us.




Debarkation was the worst of the trip, took us 2 hours to get off the boat, mainly because we chose to check our bags the night before, too many bags with all the kids. Next time, we will pack less and take our own luggage off at debarkation.
