Default Hidden Jewels on ships...

Have you found a hidden jewel on a ship, that you just loved? A quiet spot to read, a private place to kanoodle? Maybe the aft pool, as I discovered on the Conquest, that was a marvelous retreat, away from the crowds and noise...


Do you seek out your own spot?

I did on my last cruise aboard the Inspiration. Iím not good with the names of locations of ships but the spot I found was all the way in the very front of the ship on the sun deck where the running track is located. There was a door you could go out and it took you to a very small area at the very tip of the ship with big metal wall that separated that are from the rest of the deck. I laid against the wall and listened to my I-pod looking up at the stars. It was haven!

Not exactly hidden but during sailaway in Venice we went to the very tip of the bow, had to go up an extra flight of stairs to get there but was worth the look!

Aft or stern is the back of the ship...the bow is the front of the ship.

Sweet - if you have more questions about your Conquest cruise please post them on the Carnival forums.

I believe Aerogirl was talking about a space on several of the decks (except 8 where the bridge is). If you go all the way forward there are doors leading out to a small balcony. There are staterooms there that are listed as either interior or obstructed ocean view that can see out. So there are private - but not totally private.
