We are experienced cruisers now, not only on Carnival but other cruise lines also so we expect more since we know what cruising "used to be like". The Conquest could use a "face lift". The food is not the high quality steaks or cuts of meats or even as many choices each meal including the buffet. Entertainment is not  special every night. It used to be that no one would want to skip a show, but now often a movie on TV is more interesting than going to the theater to see the show. Carnival keeps their ships clean and neat. If there is trash or dish or bottle in the common area that shouldn't be there, someone will pick it up/clean it up/take care of it pronto.    

Food and Dining

My husband was happy with the food in the dining room however, I was not. The highlight of my dining was a 1 1/2 oz. fillet mignon. The dining room and the buffet had less food to choose from. Guy's hamburgers and the Burrito stand were delicious! Thankful you still have the chocolate melting cake!!

Carnival is cutting back on the quality of their shows by filling some "showtimes" with games (Hasbro games, Newly wed type Q&A), employee talent, and ship guest karaoke. The comedy club was good.

We love mid-size ships and this one was perfect!

Cabin / Stateroom

The room steward and cabin were excellent! We've never had someone always manage to clean our room while we were gone to breakfast until this cruise. Very nice! We did have a noise problem with Henri's Nightclub directly below us.
