Caribean Cruises presents Carnival Conquest the pride of Carnival Cruise Lines review
I took my brother and his two kids during President’s week on the Carnival Conquest. Our ocean view cabins were on deck 2 ( it was last minute booking so this was all that we could get) the cabins were very spacious. Entire service was amazing, we didn’t have a single bad experience. The entertainment was great and the Mardi Gras party was the beast of it all. Kids also enjoyed and had a really good time, and there is so many things on this ship that children can be occupied by, so we hardly saw them, so it was also a break for my brother! I really recommend this ship!
Pros: Actually everything on this ship was great; cabins, children’s program, and the staff was very friendly
Cons: Purchasing return transfers onboard. Staff didn’t have correct info so we almost missed the flight
You really don’t have to know a Monet from a Manet to appreciate the new Carnival Conquest, inspired by the great Impressionist painters of the 19th century. Experience the excitement of the Moulin Rouge at the Toulouse-Lautrec Lounge. Cross the Sunflower Atrium to Vincent’s for cool breezy jazz, or to the gleaming 15,000-square-foot health and fitness facility. Parents and children will love Camp Carnival, while everyone will be impressed by Carnival’s culinary masterpieces. From an intimate supper club to a multinational indoor/outdoor buffet, you’ll find everything from lobster to gourmet pizza. Hundreds of private balcony staterooms and 22 bars and lounges all add up to one incredible ship.

The cruise was good except there were too many kids on board, they were in “hot-tubs-Spa”without supervison, jumping and swimming. We were sitting in tubs, and were being hit and scratch from this kids. This was reported, but we were told if we didn’t like it, that then we should go to another “hot-tub-Spa”. But since there isn’t many ships leaving from Houston or Galveston, we really didn’t have big choice of traveling, unless if we would leave from another port in another state.

We had really awsome service at dinner, great companions, this was the best vacation we ever had. We have taken many cruises, and our waiters were excellent. This was probably the best part of the cruise. Entertainment was also great. There was a great band on this cruise. They were really good!

Carnival Conquest is simply the best!
This was our first cruise and must admitt we were very satisfied with the excellent food, shows, activities and the port of calls that the Carnival Cruise line offered. We were also very satisfied with the Cabin Steward in keeping the clean room and ready for us at any time. We enjoyed meeting new friends on the cruise and also enjoyed talking to the very friendly and ready to serve staff! It was great experiance!

Getting on and off the ship was the best and easiest process of the whole jurney.
The cruise it’s self was nothing special. Ship too big and very hard to get around. I felt like a number, not at all personal. The disembarkation process was beyond a nightmare and I left a terrible last impression. I would never cruise this line again.
