Default Other Conquest Questions, I am excited!!

How is the sushi?? I imagine it is all cooked, right? Poker, any Texas Hold Em? Is there a chocolate buffet? How is there work out area? Do they pressure you to buy stuff? I can hardly wait to go, I need this vacation bad!!!! Thanks

No, the Sushi is not all cooked. Sushi is "Raw Fish" therefore it would not be cooked. If you are talking about Tempura or maybe Terriyaki, that would be cooked, but that is not Sushi...that is Japanese food. Sushi is a kind of Japanese food that happens to be "Raw" fish.

The Gym is very nice, good facilities, I just wish the windows went all the way up so you could see straight out on the ocean while on the treadmills, etc. Nice big showers in the gym locker rooms too.

Chocolate buffet is...yawn....not very good selections.

Don't think they have Texas Holdem.

We are sailing 10/16-23! Can not wait. In regards to sushi I am very aware of what sushi is but when we had it on the Inspiration in 2001 there was nothing raw at all. They only had the rolls and the fish was cooked as they said they could not risk any type of health problems. That is why I asked about it on the Conquest. I love sashimi and really get bored by California rolls, etc. Thanks for all the info so far. Too bad about the chocolate buffet, everyone loves chocolate!

Great photos - especially of the stingrays - was that fabulous or what! I can't wait - but we don't leave until March 5th. Not really sure where we are cruising from either lol. But that is all part of the adventure. Oh well - we sail on the Sapphire Princess in a few days - so that will whet my whistle - so to speak. We love Carnival!
