Just a note that I will be OOT for a week come this Wed so it will be up to you then. Ok on with the neverending journey! I think you left off where you were stranded on some island with some people I think you said their names were Gilligan...the skipper too..... the millionaire and his wife.....the movie star... the professor and maryanne.


Didn't that show last like 2 or 3 years??? hmmm sort of like this story.

Ok on with it!!!

Tell us about the Degas Lounge, is it still NO smoking & how was the band???
We danced there on our last time on the Conquest... Wish they would make a few other lounges smoke-free.....

Hi Bob, The Degas is smoke free. The little room next to it is still smoking. I can't remember the name of it, but it has the huge sunflowers.

The Band was Blood Power. They are soooo good. If you like Southern Rock, and 70's music, they are the band. They also perform in several areas around the ship.

Thanks Luanne,
We went to "Meet the Captain" where you can get free drinks for about anhour in the Degas Lounge.... My daughter tipped a waiteras $5 & we had a table full of drinks, loved those whisky sours..... I believe that the lounge or room accross from the Degas Lounge was where they did the Karoke....

The past guest is also there. They did Karaoke in The sunflower room, but it was to crowded, so they moved it to Degas.

Thanks for the news Luanne. Now Sandra and I have an idea of what to expect when we cruise the Conquest in October/November.

I poked my head into the Karaoke last cruise but was so SMOKEY that I couldn't take it & left... Which leads me to my question, did they smoke during the Karaoke in the Degas Lounge???...

No No smoke. Even in the Sunflower room you could smoke, but no one did, because it was so crowded.

Just remembered something else to add to my review. Watch out for credit cards. On two occasions, I saw what was a problem, but could have been avoided. One lady used a credit card that she had not used in more than a year. A lot of times, credit card companies will put a stop on an account that has not been used. Another case was a lady who tried to use her card in a store in Cozumel. If she had taken a few minutes to call her credit card company, she would have been fine, but since she didn't, her card wouldn't work, because the company was afraid it had been stolen, and taken out of the country. Please put these to things on your list of to do's.

My experience with a Debit Card in Grand Caymon.....
My lovely spouse spyed out a fabric store on our bus ride to the main shopping area.... She was bound & determined to buy some cloth (she's a seamstress) so I grudgenly went for a LONG walk with her...
She made her selections after at least an hour in the store, the gal rung it up at $10.00 USA, I gave her $20.00 USA & she handed back $10.00 in Grand Cayman currency.... I told her that I didn't need the strange looking money since we were on our way back to the boat (Conquest).... She claimed she didn't have the $10.00 in USA moe for my change.... I then asked her if she would take my Master Charge debit card & she agreed... I was a little nervous using the card in a small shop like that but did it anyway.... After we got home I kept checking my bank account to see if it had cleared.... Took over 2 months to clear & I was surprised that I was only charged $5.00 on my account.... Anyway I plan on taking my Cruise debit card with limited funds in the account in case I get scammed....
