Carnival Conquest is a Conquest-class cruise ship owned and operated by Carnival Cruise Lines. Sixty percent of her staterooms have ocean views, and sixty percent of those (37% of all cabins) have balconies.[7] The ship's interior decor is of a French Impressionist style designed to complement the port city of New Orleans. Carnival Conquest was renovated in 2009, receiving a new Circle "C" club (for 12- to 14-year-olds) and a large outdoor LED screen. Eighteen ocean view staterooms were given balconies during this process.[8] [9]

The Godmother of Carnival Conquest is Lindy Boggs, former US Congresswoman for Louisiana.[3] Carnival Conquest currently sails out of Miami, Florida for year round 7 day cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean.

Incidents[edit]

On July 7, 2013, the ship was diverted to Mobile, Alabama after a tugboat sank in New Orleans, causing a closure to the Mississippi River. Carnival then changed the next 7 day cruise roundtrip New Orleans into a 6 day cruise from Mobile to New Orleans. Passengers disembarking were provided charter buses to New Orleans.
