!6th cruise, first time on the Conquest. The date, itinerary and recommendation from friends were the reasons f we chose this ship. This was the first time we sailed from Fort Lauderdale and even without Platinum status (yet!) or FTTF, it was by far the easiest boarding and debarkation experience so far. Although an older vessel, it was clean and easy to find our way around. I wish there were better ways to circumnavigate the casino without having to go up or down to another deck and then back to avoid the smoke. As a reformed smoker the stench is very repulsive to me. The food didn't seem quite as good or as previously experienced on other ships and the serving temperature left a bit to be desired. Staff was great, Mat Sequin was our Cruise Director and was quite entertaining and engaging. We stayed at the Rodeway Inn and Suites in Ft. Lauderdale and for the price, amebnities and shuttle service, would suggest it as a possible overnight accommodation for your cruise.

Cabin Review

Interior Upper/Lower
Cabin 1A 1435
We've had every type of cabin and now prefer the cheapest available in order to be able to cruise more often.
I put the upper bunk mattress on the floor for sleeping, then put in in the berth while getting ready for the day. The extra floor space provided that way is quite nice.
