We did the Conquest in 03 and are doing the Victory May 1, 05. These two ships are almost identical, except the Victory is around 50 feet shorter.

We picked the Vicory because we like the itenarary.

I've never been on the Conquest, but I've sailed on the Victory twice and love the ship. Yes, it has quirks as others have reported such as having difficulty getting to dining rooms, but overall it is a great ship. My experience was that it is very stable and the dining options are great. We chose it for the itineraries we wanted, plus it has balconies. The slide is fun and we enjoy the topless deck for the peace and quiet. Only once have I ever seen anybody actually up there topless, mostly it is couples looking for a child free environment to stretch and enjoy the sun. The walking track is awesome also on the Victory.

Have done both ships, Victory in 2002 and Conquest in 2003, doing Conquest again in March. The ships are almost identical in layout so that really isn't that much of a consideration. The main differences are the home port and the ports of call. If you haven't done the eastern ports and getting to Miami is not a problem you may want to try the Victory. I personally preferred the Conquest not for the ports of call but the home port since New Orleans is only about a 5 hour drive and I have to fly to Miami.

Also, just a personal observation. We have cruised on 3 different ships, Victory, Conquest and Elation in 2004 during spring breaks (usually the 2nd week in March in our area). I have found the passengers on both the Conquest and Elation to be generally from the driving range to the ports, lots of Texans on the Elation and Texas, Louisianna, Mississippi and Alabama residents on the Conquest. The Victory seemed to have more passengers from the Northeast, Midwest etc.

We've been on both ships. The Conquest is larger than Victory thereby holding more people. The layout is still the same. Victory may be a year or so older than Conquest. We've been on 9 Carnival ships and these two are my favorites.
