Does the Conquest time differ from the local times at port? We will be cruising in November, after we fall back to standard time, and I was just wondering if there will be a difference between the ship time and Grand Cayman time and Jamaica time. I know Cozumel is on the same time zone and they follow the same daylight savings time schedule as the US, but I'm not sure about the other two. I am trying to book an excursion on Grand Cayman through Captain Marvins that starts at 8:30 am. I emailed them and they suggested this time. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks so much!

When we went on the Conquest in December 2005 the ship changed to Eastern time for Jamaica and Grand Cayman and went back to Central time for Cozumel.

Greetings,

I was reading a recent review (on CC) about the Conquest Aft balcony-(I believe it was Deck 6- #6442), anyway the reviewer said that they did not have a couch in their cabin and was told that is had to be requested:confused: . Has anyone else experienced this? We are on the Conquest in November in an aft on Empress Deck:D and I thought the cabins had couches.

Thanks in advance and Happy Cruising:)

 

 

Hi CruiseBeauty... you may be posting about the Review I wrote about no couch in our cabin... we were in cabin 8442, aft but not all the way in the back... we did not have a couch. It was a HUGE room, king size bed, wall dressing table etc, with a stool at the desk, one chair, 2 small oval tables...3 wardrobe closets... when we called the desk, we told them we had 2 tables and only 1 chair. And we wondered about a couch since some of our family was on deck 2 with an ocean view and much smaller cabins and they had one to sit on. They DID say we had to REQUEST a couch... too funny... that has never happened to us before and we have cruised 8 times, on 4 different lines in much smaller cabins and most had a couch/loveseat... without a request, and a cheaper/lower grade room... so I don't know what was up with our cabin... there sure is room enough for one, or at least for more than 1 chair! The balcony is twice the length of the other cabins on that deck too. We had 3 outside deck chairs there and actually brought one of the plastic chairs in until someone brought us 2 other nicer indoor chairs to use for our week. They should just leave them in there! And again, we still had tons of space. The reason we wanted one was because when we would sit with family for a while, getting dressed or waiting to leave for dinner, only one of us could sit in the 1 chair and the other/s had to sit on the bench or bed... we didn't need it to sleep on. Just for sitting, conversing, have a few drinks without sitting on the bed. We weren't in the cabin much, but when we were, it would have been nice.

We will be on the Conquest Feb 08. I had a ? about the size of the bathrooms. I have only been on one other cruise (Ecstasy) and was suprized at the size of the bathrooms - I expected a smaller one. Is the Conquest bathrooms the same size, smaller or larger than the Ecstasy's?

Thanks

Would like some comments on this room as well. We are on 4th Conquest cruise in Dec and have this room booked for the large balcony. PVP says stairs are emergency stairs and are not used (except in emergencies). Anyone had this room that could commment on the layout??

Hey everyone! We are sailing the Conquest this June and since it's our first Conquest class ship what are there anything we need to see or not see? We are very excited! Ready for a new class ship!

 

You need to see the pursers desk when you embark to get a map of the ship or study the maps at each elevator bank. It will help you tremendously, especially if you're assigned to the Monet lower for dinner. Enjoy your cruise!

Does anyone happen to have a recent copy of the Camp Carnival caper for ages 9-11 on the Conquest??? My son was in a different age group last year & we would like to see his new activities.

 

send to : melonie (at) grandecom.net -- replace (at) with @

 

Thanks in advance if you can help.

Going on Conquest 9-23 and have a couple of questions. What is their non-alcohol beer? Can you bring your own water and pop? Do you get a players club card in the casino and are you able to use your credit card to get more cash in the casino?

I can't help you with the non-alcohol beer question, but I am sure someone else will be able to.

 

Yes, you can bring your own water and soft drinks. Just slap a tag on them with your cabin number and leave them and have the baggage person at the pier arrange for it to be delivered to your cabin. At least that is what I did on my last Carnival cruise, which was a few years ago.

 

I have not been in the casino recently but I did have a players card in the past, but never tried to get more cash with it. Again, I am sure someone else will chime in with the answer to that one as well.

I think the beer is LaBlatt's, not sure though.

 

You can bring whatever water you can *personally* carry on the ship. I'd recommend getting Crystal Light type mix and adding it to the tap for cheap flavored drinks!

 

I don't have any answers for your other questions - enjoy the Conquest.:)

Impressionists. Van Gogh, Degas, Cezanne. etc... There is a picture or two in the second link in my signature that will show you some of the paintings.

 

Here's are some shots I took during my cruise 10/15/06:

Has anybody had an ocean view room that sleeps 3 people? We booked inside guarantee and was moved to an ocean view with a couch. We were told that the couch is the 3rd bed. Is it an actual size couch or just a chair that folds out to a bed? We were on the Conquest last year with 4 people in a cabin and had the 2 beds that came out of the ceiling. Can't imagine where they would fit a couch at. Would love to see pictures of a room like that. Our room is on the Riviera Deck #1403.

Last year we stayed in 1332 and it was a room for 3. It is a sofa bed. The steward removes the back of the couch in the evening and turns it into a bed. The couch also has drawers underneath that you can use for storage.

 

We loved our room. I can attach a picture, but I am not sure how much it will help you. It shows the couch already made into a bed.

 

Enjoy your trip.

Thanks for the picture. So does that mean that there is no vanity in the room? Can they still push the 2 regular twin beds together?

 

The vanity is directly across from the sofa bed. It has lots of mirror room and the standard hairdryer in the drawer.

 

Yes, the 2 beds can still be pushed together.
