We have started planning our family cruise for next March (we take one each spring break). Looking for input on these two options:
6 day Conquest out of Port Everglades - Jamaica, GC and Cozumel
7 day Dream out of Nola - same ports of call
We have sailed the Conquest but not on the Dream - the Nola trip is ~ $500 more which isn't necessarrly a deal breaker. Since it is the same ports is the Dream worth the difference?
IMO, if price diff is not a deal breaker, I would choose the Dream
. Nothing against Port Everglades or the Conquest, but 7 days is better than 6 days, and New Orleans is a destination in itself and should be experienced. Maybe you already have been there, so it is not new, but even though I have been there numerous times, I would love to spend a few days pre or post cruise in New Orleans.
Also the Dream
is a newer and bigger ship with some extras that Conquest does not have. Since you have already been on Conquest, the Dream
will be a new experience. I have not been on the Dream
, but would love to, and especially out of New Orleans.
Whichever you choose, have a great cruise.
