Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Great food in the MDR, Guy's Burgers and Blue Iguana were good and fun, buffet had a good selection, and the bars were good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
We used the fitness center almost every day. It has well-maintained equipment and a good crew. We played trivia, and had a fun Groove with St Jude, and took home two bears.


4 out of 5
Stage shows were OK, but targeted at a younger audience. We loved the live music throughout the ship.

Children's Programs

No children traveled with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our waiters at table 532 in the Monet Restaurant - Sherwin, Wendell, and Leila - were excellent. Very attentive and fun. Our stewards for cabin 1009 - Dan and Muzaki - were also excellent. Our room was kept clean and tidy with linens changed whenever needed.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Very well kept but showing a bit of age in the decor. Very clean and well-maintained, but I wish passengers would stop putting food trays and plates and drink cups in the halls where food and drink get dumped onto the carpet. More work for hard-working crew!! Layout is fine.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Well kept but a bit worn and dated. Maybe Conquest can get a refurb soon. She is a great ship! The stewards kept the cabin very neat and clean.

Ship tip

Eat breakfast in the MDR! Great service and atmosphere!

Ports of call

Miami, Florida Did not visit port

Flew in and out.

George Town, Grand Cayman

5 out of 5
Amphibious Bus Land and Sea Adventure was a lot of fun. After a street tour, we drove into the sea and went over some shipwrecks (underwater cameras with images on monitors) and out to feed fish. The water was so calm and clear that we could actually lean out of the bus and see the bottom. WOW!! We had a short stop near the end at a resort where we could get a drink or walk on the beach. Best Pina Colada ever, made in a soft-serve ice cream machine! Fun tour!

Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras

5 out of 5
Walked to the beach and played in the warm water. Love Mahogany Bay!!!

Belize City, Belize Did not visit port

Sunburned and tired! Stayed on the ship and relaxed.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We went to the Tabasco's Chef Maestro, Cooking and Tasting session. It was fabulous!! Chef Luis is a hoot and is truly a master chef. We made an appetizer, main course, and dessert, all in Mexican style. Simple ingredients but delicious!!! This was the best excursion ever! We may do it again on our next Cozumel stop!

Very smooth. The process is the best we have seen on any ship. Thanks, Conquest!!
