Default Grand Gala on Conquest

We are sailing on the Conquest Oct 16. Was wondering if they have the Grand Gala on Thursday night like they did on the Inspiration? Last time we had the late seating for dinner and really could not enjoy the Gala and other "food" activities in the evening. Thanks!

The Gala on the Conquest was horrible as compared to the Inspiration! I was extremely dissappointed! I would rate the Inspiration a 10 and the Conquest a 2!

I agree with Cheryl. The gala buffet on the Conquest was the least impressive of any gala buffet I've seen on any ship on any cruise line. Worst of all, it was held on the Lido deck instead of one of the main dining rooms. The informality of the Lido deck just took away the elegance usually associated with gala buffets, and the number of stations displaying these culinary works of art was minimal.

I guess I have to agree with the others too. Our cruise onboard the Inspiration in 2001 was by far the best cruise we've ever been on. I've said many times, at the end of that cruise, I wanted to stay onboard and go again. Man, I hated getting off of that ship !

I'm hoping that the Conquest will get better with there food and atmosphere in time to come.

happy cruising;
