HAVE A GREAT TRIP, TELL US ALL ABOUT IT.....
Well, as far as going on the Conquest so many times is concerned, it's close-by. We live about 50 miles from the port of New Orleans. All the other departure cities offer cruises in the same price range, and, from what I've garnered, travel to those cities, and a nights' stay the evening before crusing, would cost almost as much as the cruise itself. By going out of New Orleans, we have a limo pick us up here in.........Picayune, Mississippi, and is there waiting the following Sunday. The economics of going on the Conquest makes sense, (cents), to me.
I personally think the Conquest to be an incredible ship. I can give you some general pointers like....don't pack too much. We always do, and don't wear half the clothes we take. If you do have any particular questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don't have a digital camera,,,,,,get one. They're getting cheap now, and they take some beautiful pictures. If you like soda, buy a soda card. Take a nap every afternoon. Eat at the deli for lunch, (that helps control the waistline). Go to the midnight comedy shows. Be considerate of others,,,,,,,and have a good time.
Turkeyman-I envy you! Driving through Mississppi was our favorite state! Look at us, driving every year from Northern MN! Well, for the past 3 years anyway. Next time we are looking at sailing out of Galveston, close to the same miles for us. I bet you have all the nooks and crannies explored on Conquest. What was your favorite part of the ship?
Coffeecups-Looking foward to your review when you get back!
I like deck 4 during the hot time of the day. Its outer sides make for some relaxing reading or sleeping. It's shaded, a good breeze blows all the time, and it's quiet. Don't get me wrong, I like all the "doins" on the 9th and 10th deck alot too, but sometimes the quiet throws a different perspective on a cruise.
We also liked nibbling on some sushi before the evening meal, everyday.
