We cruised on Carnival Conquest Nov 25-Dec 2, 2012 from New Orleans to Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. It was my 5th time on Carnival Conquest. Spoiler alert - the cruise was GREAT!

 

I took lots of pictures, including pictures of FOOD. Imagine that!

 

I also plan on posting some before and after Fun Ship 2.0 pictures which may be of interest to some.

What food is on the side opposite Guys? Or is that where one of the bars is now located?

 

It's the Blue Iguana Cantina where they serve burritos and tacos.

You're welcome.

 

We did not do the steak house this trip, although they are very good. We still have a couple of Diamond dinners left, so maybe on the Sunshine?

Yes, Blue Iguana Cantina. And they make their own tacos, but getting a little ahead.

I guess that is enough of an introduction, on with the random cruise...

 

Shore excursions desk did have snorkels for sale

I'll be doing some snorkeling later, but have my own snorkel gear.

 

 

 

Crescent City Connection (Mississippi River Bridge) in New Orleans

That way is upriver - the Gulf of Mexico is in the other direction, about 95 river miles.

 

 

Visible at embarkation is the "new" chair hog policy.

I didn't notice them enforcing, but then, I didn't really notice any chair hogs.

Part of the Lido buffet area is now dedicated to Comfort Kitchen. There are familiar foods here and some that are not so familiar - to me, anyway.

If I remember correctly, years ago, this window served Asian food, but they haven't used it for anything in a while. I guess potential for future food!

Speaking of Blue Iguana Cantina (not to be confused with the Blue Iguana Tequila Bar, although they are near to each other), time ot check it out. There are two serving areas - one for burritos and one for tacos. In addition, there is a well stocked Salsa Bar area with salsas, hot sauces, and ore.

In the past, if someone wanted a hot dog but the burger line was very long, it was pretty simple to walk up and grab a hot dog without being rude, because of the way the area was set up. I'm thinking this is no longer possible considering the layout of the deli?

Speaking of lines...how is the line for breakfast burritos, compared to the often-long omelet lines?

By now I was starving (then and now), so was time to sample some of the food. A burger from Guy's was in order and maybe some of the new pizza, too. I had been curious about Guy's. Normally I don't eat many hamburgers but had to try one, and, of course, take pictures of it.

 

There was rarely much of a line a Guy's, but when there was, they opened a second serving line that many seemed to overlook.

I have read of some lines on Carnival Breeze, or of Guy's sometimes handing out burgers and customers not being given a choice, but that isn't the case on Carnival Conquest. The only default was that they came with super melty cheese (SMC), but you could ask for them with not cheese, no problem.

 

I had heard about and decided a Pig Patty was in order...

They do have quite the assembly line, but you can have it your way.

There is a condiment station with all kinds of things

I would consider that rude but don't remember excessive lines. I think Fish and Chips had the longest line I saw one day. Not sure if that was typical.

I didn't see long lines, but not sure what it might be like when they first open. I walked up to both the burrito and taco stations.

anyway, I looked at all the fixins available, but decided not to mess with perfection. I present the Pig Patty and fries (the fries are GREAT, too).

some deconstruction to see what's there

Good to know, if I were a morning person or liked omelets. :D:D

 

but I am sure is of interest to some. Thanks.

 

there was at least one other omelet station that I did see, unless they changed it.

I thought I would only have 1 burger from Guy's, take a few pictures, and move on. That's what I thought. But it was so good I have several more during the week.

 

As much as I wanted a second one right after the first, I froced myself to move on and check out the new pizza.

The first was Pizza Margherita. The appearance seemed strange, but tasted fine.

We love thin crust

not super stringy, but did have potential

there were optional fixins, but I didn't use

So what else was in the kitchen? Now they were cooking

I REALLY liked the new pizza and would be revisiting here more during the cruise, also. :)

I didn't want to over do it for embarkation lunch, so decided on a little dessert. I thought I had heard good things about the strawberry pops but must have thought wrong. They were okay and the chocolate thing was pretty good. How can you go wrong with chocolate?
