Conquest Conquers Quest for Quality Cruise !!!

Sail Date: March 2010
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Galveston

The Conquest ! What a ship ! We traveled the last week of March with about 1500 other Arkansans who were on spring break. Our room was on the main deck and we had an oceanview. Find your cabin on the internet sites and familiarize yourself with it's location compared to the elevators. There are three main sets. If not, you can literally walk 3 football fields down some of these halls.

Cabin number 2437, oceanview. Large room with a couch that makes out to a bed in addition to the king size bed that is two twins put together. Television in good spot. Lighting controls in great locale - right above bed frame. Window was clean - dirty window on cruise ship is my pet peeve - and window was cleaned again by ground crew in Jamaica. Water pressure in bathroom shower was G R E A T ! ! ! Room location is ideal. You go to aft elevator, go to the Main floor ( 2nd floor ) and when you hit the hall you are like three doors down that hall. There is no room across the hall which was great More because it was for linens and supplies which were only used mid-mornings by the crew so no interference with peace and quiet. We will try and book this room again !

The crew was excellent and the entertainment was also. We had a juggler who was unbelievable and a singer from New Orleans who put on a great show. The Legends performance on the last night was hilarious !!! If you want to be Elton John, Sinatra, Elvis, Madonna, or several other entertainers, you will get your chance !!!The dancers were spectacular and also filled other roles on the ship, helping out with bingo and other acts. A female magician from Argentina was really talented and evidently can really saw people in half and stick them with swords. Very entertaining. But, word to the wise. WATCH THE SUN !!! I got a pretty good shoulder burn in about 10 minutes.

We stayed on the ship at Jamaica and had the ship all to ourselves. We swam alone, hung out in the Zacuzzi alone and dined for lunch alone. I would pick a place you do not really want to see and stay on board. It was the best day we had. Do not look for things to criticize, just relax and have a ball. We are going again on this ship in September or so. What a great seven days !!!! It was a ninth honeymoon or so for a couple married 35 years. We love this ship !!! Less

The tee shirt capital of the world !!! Do not stop at the first store. Further down the main street right next to the pier are better tee shirts, colored not just white, 5 for 20 bucks !!! You can also get a shaved ice for three bucks from a nice lady in a cart who is set up right off the beach. This area is very safe and I think Carnival actually helped establish this area right off their pier. There were 6 ships docked at Cozumel so we mingled with 18 thousand folks or more. But, it was fine.

We walked around Georgetown and looked at the shops and watched people drive on the wrong side of the street. When you come off the pier walk to the right and go about three blocks to the post office. Right across the street is a shop that sells post cards and we mailed them to all our friends with a Cayman Island postmark !!!

This is a commercially advanced country - more banks per square mile than anywhere on earth. But, it is beautiful. The people are not overly friendly. You get the impression that we are just stupid Americans to them but, heh, they live on an island that gets wiped out by storms about every three years, so, go figure.


We stayed on the ship and had a blast !!! But, many folks loved the snorkeling and the trips to the beaches.
