Had a great time on Conquest! Great shows! Great service! Great drinks! Be sure to visit the Alchemy Bar and ask Tijana to make you a drink! Be a regular there and get to know everyone! The historical lectures by Josh (the cruise director) were great! Really enjoyed the shows! The singers/dancers were awesome!!! Loved SixAppeal and the Hornets! Did some serious shopping! Peter, the ships shopping expert, was extremely helpful in helping us to find just the right jewelry for the best price! Thanks again Peter!!! The cruise was a much needed escape from reality! 


Cruise Photos

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was fine - we only slept there. Josie, our steward, was great!
Embarkation and Disembarkation
The worst thing about the cruise unfortunately. But it is a necessary evil that we must all endure. They did make the best out of it I guess. It just seems like it takes forever for your group to be called and then you get in a line that goes on forever to get through customs. Small price to pay for a great vacay!!!
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
La Romana was a little scary. They're still developing it as a port. We went downtown. The market was HIGH HIGH HIGH pressure from all the locals to buy or they tried to be your "tour-guide". Police presence was extremely obvious though.
Onboard Activities
The shows were great! Talented singers and dancers! LOVED the use of the screen on stage for the shows! Great costumes, set, & light design!
Service and Staff
Our steward Josie, Cruise Director Josh, Shopping expert Peter, Alchemy Bartender Tijana, Wait staff I dewa & Marcellus were all great!!!
Food and Dining
Food was good. Seemed to be better on earlier cruises.
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
Grand Turk Island
La Romana, Dominican Republic Find an excursion. Don't visit downtown.
Willemstad, Curacao
Beautiful architecture and city! Would consider going back just to stay there for a week!
Oranjestad, Aruba
The water was just breath-taking!


Go to the Alchemy Bar! Tijana and Cat are great!!!
