the conquest is coming to new orleans toward the end of next year. I would like to know what updates have been done to her. on carnival website when you go to ships and click on the little blue things beside the name of the ship it only says steakhouse. A carnival person said it had a seaside theater. they said that it would be going into drydock before it goes to new orleans and get the water works done. They said the swimming pool has been changed and it had a couple of waterslides. has anyone been on it lately to tell me what is new?Also I have been trying to see pictures of the ship but only mostly staterooms and restaraunts. where can I go to see the whole ship water play areas and all.

The Conquest does have the Seaside Theater. I'm not aware of any of the Conquest Class ships getting the Waterworks added at this point. Look here for a picture of the water slide on the Conquest.

You are doing the right thing by verifying information the Carnival people tell you. It has often been a case of making three phone calls to get a consensus on a question asked for many people regarding ship amenities. My best advice is to find a Travel Agent that specializes in cruises, then narrow that down to the one's the specialize in Carnival cruises. Another tip is to ask them if they are "Certified" by Carnival as a Carnival Specialist.

livetotravel,
I agree in seeking out a travel agent that specializes in cruising. However; I don't feel it's necessary to get caught up in being so precise to narrow it down to a "Carnival Certified" agent. Agents now days are inundated with each cruise line having their own "specialist" course. An agent simply may just not have had time to take a particular cruise lines course yet. They also have many other opportunities to learn about a cruise lines product such as webinars, local association meetings, ship inspections, conferences, and may have cruised many times on different cruise lines. Many agents are certified by CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association), and have earned designations as Accredited, Master, or Elite Cruise Counselors. They are very knowledgeable on cruising.

It's not very many pictures but if you look here
then click on "Ship Highlights" you will see a few pictures of the ship on the right hand side.

I've often found that an excellent source for information on particular ships is the News/Press Release section of the cruise line's Web site. Most, including Carnival, have ship fact sheets that are kept up to date. HERE is the one for Carnival Conquest. I also did a search for "Conquest" in the press release search engine... not much came up in this case (although I did learn about reconfigurations to a handful of cabins in 2009), yet this is where you'd find real updates.

I hope this helps, somewhat. Several of our Members have also been onboard Carnival Conquest recently, so I'm certain that they'll be able to provide further info.

thanks so much for your help. I sure would hate to go all the way to galveston for the magic, cause it looks fun. the conquest looks boring comparing the two. I have been on the Conquest several years ago and would like them to update the ship with the fun stuff like the magic. I am going on the disney Dream next June and had thought about the new Disney Fantasy in 2012 but it was so expensive that I thought maybe I could do closer to home. My son was so very bored on carnival and absolutely loved the Disney wonder. he was12. never saw him.

Here is also another link that gives some refurbishment history for the ship. It is from an independent site though.

It wouldn't surprise me if further down the road they do add a Waterworks style water attraction to the Conquest class ships. They still haven't finished the Fantasy class yet. This "Evolutions of Fun" for the Fantasy class ships was supposed to have been completed in 2009. Yet, it is still in progress. I'm pretty sure the economy played a part in the delays though.
