Designed by Joe Farcus, the carnival conquest has 14 decks and is a good size for an older ship. In this review of the Carnival Conquest, I want to focus mostly on the amenities, the staff and the decor.
With interiors inspired by French Impressionist painters, the exciting new Carnival Conquest represents the Conquest class of Fun Ships. The ship's revolutionary design means that 80 percent of the staterooms offer glorious ocean views; and of those, 80 percent have private balconies.
The first impressions of the Carnival Conquest is its grandeur. The ship is definitely grand and has everything you could want, including excellent food. I would recommend this cruise to any age group, as it had something for everyone. As with most Carnival ships, the overall appearance did lack the glamor and cleanliness compared to a Royal Caribbean or Princess but nothing beats Carnival's value. In addition, most of Carnival's ships are designed for fun rather than luxury and you can see the fun almost from the first night.
The facilities of the Carnival Conquest including the standard dining room and theater, as well as a reservations-only supper club. It will require an additional gratuity to dine in this venue but is well worth it for the additional quality of the food. I would certainly recommend the dining room for breakfast however, certainly better than the Lido deck fare.
If you want to travel large on a little budget then there is a special report here that you need to see.
