Itinerary: Western Caribbean

We have been on 3 cruises. 2 Royal Caribbean and 1 Carnival. I have to say the first Royal Caribbean cruise we went on was our best. But our 2nd choice is the Conquest. We were a little put off at the very first arrival at the dock in Galveston.

We waited in line to board for over 3 hours. We were dragging our luggage through this long line the entire time. (Royal Caribbean checks your luggage at the curb).

The food was lacking on the first night. It just seemed like we had a dark cloud over us that first day. All changed on the second day. The service at dinner was superb, the food was soooo much better and we started thoroughly enjoying our trip.

The waterslide was awesome, the activities on board were grand, and the shows were Vegas quality shows. We have another cruise booked on Conquest and are anxiously waiting our departure date.

If you take this cruise ship, you HAVE to try the Melted chocolate lava cake. If chocolate is a sin, we are DOOMED. We ordered it every night.
