Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

This has been our 11th cruise, 10 on Carnival.  I have come to the conclusion that for the most part it is who we are with family friends..that make the trip.  The Conquest was not my favorite ship, yet we had a really good time with our family and friends.  

 

The good... The food was really good on this ship.  I cannot complain.  The main dining room the food was excellent.  The Lido pretty much the same as the other ships.  The pizza place is always delicious as well as Guys Burgers.. so good.

 

The staff was super friendly and the ship although dated was very clean.  Our cabin was adequate, inside 8230.  It was in a great location and relatively quiet.  We enjoyed using the gym and the mini golf was also fun.  

 

The bad:  The entertainment was just ok.  It started out bad... and got better.  The epic rock modified show was the best and I even watched it twice but the rest was just ok compared to other ships.. No variety shows.. magicians etc... The comedians were terrible.  Also, I don't know if they were short staff but there was no entertainment staff.. Only Haylee the CD and DJ Desire did most of the trivia and one other girl we saw once... We really enjoy trivia and ping pong tornaments etc and there was no ping pong and a few trivia but not very much.. only on port days when not many were on board.  I felt the activities were extremely limited.  Not much going on at all except pain and foot seminars etc... I was disappointed in that.  

 

The ports were ok.  We didn't get to half moon cay.. This is the 3rd time we were supposed to go there and couldn't.. They need to have a back up port for this as another day at sea was just ok and again they didn't put many things to do that day on the fun times.  

 

All in all a great time but I probably would not choose the Conquest again.  I like the bigger ships as there is just more room.

Cabin / Stateroom
Decent small as usual but loved being on the 8th floor. Good location and pretty quiet.

This port is absolutely gorgeous to look at. There is zip lining for 20 bucks all day and a pool.
