Default Weather and Conquest Ship Question

Good morning all!

I have finally gotten a chance to see the Conquest in port on the web cam. Woo Hoo!!! But I have a question that has been plaguing me since I've booked my cruise. So, if you've been on the Conquest, perhaps you can help me out....

Is there a place on the front of the ship you can stand and look out in front of you? I have been trying to compare the configuration of this ship with the Pride, which I went on last year. The Pride had an area up in the front where you could stand and enjoy the departure. I'd love something similar...so was wondering. It looks like there are several places on the Conquest that you can go all the way up to the front, but I'd love to know for sure.

Question # 2, in Maztlan and Puerto Vallarta it was extremely humid and almost umbearable. Is the weather the same in the Caribbean? I know that we will be in the tropics and I should expect something similar, but I just wanted to make sure. I come from heat, but dry heat, so the humid heat is pretty icky to me.

Thanks!!!!!

And yeah, I am leaving in three weeks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Izards,

We've been on the Conquest 2 times. We always go to the front of the ship during departure. There are usually dolphins escorting us out of the harbor. Watch for them. You'll see them jumping out of the water.

Cozumel, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman are all hot, hot, hot. You'll have a great time, though. They all have beautiful beaches. Be sure to take plenty of water to drink when you get off at the ports.

HAPPY CRUISING!!!!

We were on the Conquest in Dec. and the weather at all of the ports was very nice. It probably will be pretty hot going in the summer!
