Thanks Sarge for the great reviews and awesome photos, your review of the Dream and photos of the Cove balcony made us want to try a Cove, we did and it was great, we have a cruise booked on the Conquest in Nov. 2013, now you have got us excited about the Conquest, keep it up.

Thanks

Love the review so far. CQ was one of my best cruises so good we did it twice in 2002 & 2006. I have enjoyed the old and new photo's it gives perspective. I am looking forward to your Sunshine trip, do you have any old Destiny shots to compare? Destiny was my "first" so special memories.

 

I may have missed it, what did they do with the old fish -n- chips food station on the level above the lido restaurant? Still there or something else.

Love the bath robes.

 

Have to say not impressed with the new pizza on the Breeze TA.

 

That's funny. We loved the pizza on the Breeze TA!

Thank you. Sorry - I don't do bingo, but they certainly have it. It is a revenue generator for the cruise lines.

 

Oh - last time i did play i would say punch cards.

Thank you.

 

I've been on Destiny and have a few old pictures that I'm going to try to get the same angle.

 

Fish and Chips is still there. It is one of the reasons I look forward to cruising on Conquest Class ships. This cruise, I was so busy enjoying the new food that I didn't eat once at my old favorite.

 

A couple of mementos they have on display on Conquest

And fear not, Fish and Chips is still there, but no longer named Sur Mer on Carnival Conquest

Those pics of Guys burger made my mouth water. I ate them every day. I thought they were one of the best food options on the ship. I also liked the new pizza much better. One of the extra toppers that you could put on the pizza was a roasted garlic sprinkle and it was great.

There's Adri! Probably the best bartender / mixologist in the Carnival Fleet!

They are great, aren't they?

 

The new pizza is definitely better.

Is the deli port side? Wish they still had that wok place on opposite side.

For sure more options than ever before. Not a fan of MDR on sea days. Been the same menu F O R E V E R.

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?

OMG! Drooling! :eek: Was the strawberry pop like a cake pop? The chocolate cake looks amazing. It looks like it has nice fudge-y frosting. I do not like whipped frosting and it seems like they use whipped frosting on a lot of their desserts. I certainly hope these two choices are on the Liberty!

Thank you for bringing back pictures of the Taste Bar. I haven't seen many pictures at all!

 

You're welcome.

Correct, port side.

 

?? - MDR lunch these days is Punchliner Brunch and the menu isn't that old.

I guess so. Never had either pop before. I guess I'm not much of a strawberry/cake pop fan. Nothing wrong with it and not sure what I was expecting. The choco thing was good and rich.

Great so far! Unless I'm mistaken, aren't they repositioning Conquest to Miami?

I'm booked on her cruise from San Juan, ending in Miami. That's why I'm here looking at pictures of her!

Anyway, Pizza Pirate is where the old pizzeria was, but with a new (and IMO greatly improved pizza). Gone are calzones and Caesar salads and garlic bread. I think a small price, given the improved pizza.
