My brother (34) and I (31) took my parents (retirement aged) on this cruise for their anniversary. While my parents like to sleep late and my brother is happy laying at the pool all day, I like to do all sorts of things on the ship. I will write this review from the perspective of a younger, professional male while occasionally adding thoughts of my travelmates. Since I live in Houston, my ...

Conquest Cruise-October 26, 2008-Halloween. I am 47 and went on this cruise with my DW 42. This was our fourth cruise and the third cruise on the Conquest.

It was located on NASA Road One about 6 miles ...

This was my 11th cruise, 7th with Carnival. It sure was nice to be back!! I travelled with my partner Josh my Mother, and her best friend. We started the trip on Thursday the 25th of September. I am not one who likes to fly, so whenever we can drive, we do! I am willing to drive to the Galveston Area, and the southern California area, anything else and we would fly. Well, the trip started ...

Ok, here it is. My 2nd review of a cruise I have taken. I never understood why people cruise and why so much, until last year when I took my first cruise with my wife(maria). The reason I took a cruise was because when I would visit my mother in NY whose health was deteriorating last 3 years, she always told my wife and I to stop using our vacation days to visit her in a hospital but instead take ...

Carnival Conquest departing Houston on September 28, 2008. The whole cruising experience on the Conquest was very disappointing. Lets start with the embarkation process. I know that leaving out of Houston is not your regular port, but the whole process was extremely slow, with no information available to the passengers. My wife and I drove to the terminal. We got near the terminal at ...

We were on the 9/21 cruise, the first cruise out of the new bayport terminal. We are from fort worth and drove down saturday morning, we had a friend who stayed with us, who flew in from NY, after picking her up fro the airport we decided, since the terminal is only 30 mins away (from Houston Hobby) to see if we could find it, so we wouldn't have to worry about it the next day, after a long drive ...

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 ...

We sailed from the new Bayport Houston port on the 2nd Conquest trip from this port (9/28). As reported on other threads, the prior trip had customs problems and debarkation lasted until about 2pm delaying our embarkation. This in turn delay the muster drill and leaving port until about 5 or 5:30. Our debarkation 1 week later ran smoothly and we were out in 20 minutes from when our floor was ...

Overall, our cruise on the Carnival Conquest was disappointing, at best. My husband and I were on the first cruise after Hurricane Ike - sailing away for our honeymoon. I had cruised before (7 years ago on the Disney Magic) although this was the first cruise for my husband. I was not expecting Carnival to live up to the glory of Disney, however almost every aspect of this cruise fell way below ...

I will try to give an honest and objective review based on my recent experience. This was our first cruise, 2 adults in our mid thirties and two children 6 and 4. We sailed from Houston and was amazed at how easy embarkation was, of course the conquest had been docked there for a few days so the ship was ready and we got to our cabins within 20 minutes of walking into the terminal. The ship decor ...
