Default Another Conquest (10/26/03)Ques

hi--first timer here AGIAN...so many questions, so little time.

Is the formal dinner the very first night (Sunday night) or is it Monday night...just wondering how much resting up and "getting ready" time we would need if it is on Sunday night. All info is appreciated...Thanks!

The first and dressiest formal night will be our 2nd. day which is Monday night and a day at sea. Don't miss poseing for a formal picture to capture how great you will look. As Jeff mentioned, Thursday is the other formal night when we leave Cozumel. You may not see as many folks dressed up, as many are often suffering the effects of the Cozumel experience sun & fun! Watch the rum 150 proof and drinks as they do tend to sneak up on you. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. We were all first timers once. I still learn something everyday on these great cruise forums. Don't miss the Meet & greet party at 3 p.m.
Bon Voyage

Bev,
All this time I was thinking Cozumel was on Friday. Now I will really have to behave myself and not drink too much. Check you email when you get home today for my letter.
Diane

Diane, you are correct. Opps! Sorry. I will log on tonight. I was thinking 2nd. night and 2nd. to last night which would have been Friday. In this case, Carnival has it on Thursday. They often do that on a Western Caribbean cruise due to the later departure from Coz.
Bon Voyage

Glad to know it is on Thursday because Cozumel will probably zap us out with all that rum. Will see you soon. Just FOUR more days! YIPPEE

My husband and I just returned from the Conquest on Sunday the 19th, it is a beautiful ship with lots to do. If you like to play bingo, I recommend that you take advantage of the bingo card sale that they offer on Sunday. For $120.00 you play the same card (triple card) for the entire week (31 games in all). Otherwise, it costs between $5.00-$10.00 for a single card and $10.00-$20.00 for a triple card. I purchased the $120.00 special and won twice at bingo. The best thing is they pay you in cash. The lowest prize amount is $100.00 and the biggest is $2000.00. They play several games worth $500.00 and $1000.00 throughout the week. They have 2 slot tournaments and a blackjack tournament where the winner receives $500.00 cash. Also, check out the prices in the shops on the ship and then compare the prices in the ports of call. Some of the prices are better on the ship than in port. We highly recommend that you go to the shore excursion talk, Corey Schmidt the cruise director, will make it very interesting for you. He is extremly funny and intertaining. So have a blast on your cruise, wish I were going with you.

The Bingo cards are paper, with fold over tabs (hanging chads!)
Make sure you don't tear anything off or it will void the card. You can only use each card for one session, unless you buy the $120 card on the first day to use the whole cruise. Good luck!

How do you keep the car for the whole cruise......is it a packet of them or what?
What do you get for the $120

You get three standard paper bingo cards, connected together. No packet...you use the same cards every game that week, so you have to take care of them.

If you are constantly bending the tabs....isn't that confusing and hard to watch after a few times???? Sounds lame to me.
