I went on the Conquest last year for my honeymoon. You are in for a treat!
It's a beautiful ship, with tons of murals, etc. It might strike you as a bit gaudy at first, but you get used to it after a day or two!
We had a wonderful time on the Conquest.
When we booked the cruise, it was leaving out of New Orleans. Then Hurricane Katrina came along. For Galveston, we flew into Bush Airport in Houston and then had a town car come pick us up to take us to Galveston. Probably wasn't the most price conscious option, but we were on our honeymoon, so we said, what the hell.
We're going on the Miracle in May and I'm hoping it can live up to the high expectations the Conquest set for us!
