Thanks for posting your review Rob M; I'm glad you had a good time on the Conquest. We had a great time as well on our Conquest cruise but agree with your thinking about trying RCCL next time. We always enjoyed Carnival and never thought we would try a different line but last year we decided to give RCCL a a chance and I'm glad we did. We found the whole embarkation/debarkation procedure to be much more organized and timely on RCCL (no musical yellow chairs) and the whole cruise experince was just more relaxed and pleasurable. Funny you should mention the size of the portions on Carnival; I always thought their dining room food was pretty good but their portions were small. We found the food on RCCL to be about the same or better but the portions were much larger. I never had to ask for a second entree in order to feel full. Keep an open mind and try different cruise lines until you find the one you like the best. I hope you book another cruise soon!
