Smile First time cruiser here:)

For our 20th anniv. hubby and I are taking our first cruise. We are booked on the conquest for november. Was wondering if any one had to have inside rooms? We have inside rooms because they were the most affordable for us at this time. Hoping they arent way way small and feel like we are in a cave. Any comments?

Welcome to Cruisemates! We sailed the Conquest, and, loved everything about it.....Don't worry about your room, Carnival's cabins are larger than most,and you will not be bumping into each other

The food and entertainment was great...check out the aft pool area...it was fabulous! Just give a yell if you have any more questions,and we will all be glad to help you

Welcome to Cruisemates. The Conquest is one of my all time favorite ships.

The size of the interior cabins are basically the same size as the Oceanview. What you'll find is a nice cabin and as Trip mentioned they are generally larger than other cruise lines.

Enjoy the cruise.

Not only was the inside cabin bigger than I expected, I actually loved how dark it was. Slept better than I have in years!! Darkness + rocking of ship + awesome bedding= great sleep. You will have a wonderful time! You only have to be in your cabin as often as you like anyway. Always a million things going on! Happy cruising!

We also will be cruising in November, aboard the Carnival Glory. It's also our 20th wedding anniversary too. It took my wife 10 years before she could convince me to go on a cruise, (USN Ret). Our first cruise was aboard the Carnival Victory. Now I can't stop cruising. Don't miss the "High Tea" time, you'll enjoy it. So welcome to "Cruisemates" and to cruising. Have a wonderful cruise!

What dates are you sailing in November? We are sailing on the 14th. This will be our 5th cruise, but first with Carnival. Happy early 20th!

Welcome aboard! I'll "echo" all the information above. I think you'll love the inside cabin, and I KNOW you'll love your "Conquest" cruise.
If you need any information, or advice, just ask. They're a super bunch of people here, and we're all "hooked on cruizin'".

Hi J&T. Inside rooms are great! We've done two two-week trips on sister ship to Conquest due to the affordability and they're great for two. Approximately 180 sq ft. Not alot of room to have a party but they work fine. Bring a night light if you don't like pitch dark tho. Enjoy!!

You will not have a problem with an inside. The Conquest is a wonderful ship. You won't be in your room that much as you'll be too busy having a good time elsewhere on the ship.

Inside rooms are on the same boat as balconies and suites. lol. Everyone enjoys the cruise the same way. We usually do inside cabins becuase of the affordabolity.
Have a great time!

My husband and I will also be on the Conquest with you. We are really looking forward to this cruise, we haven't been on the Conquest since 2003. We have had inside cabins before and they are great if really like your room dark. We always splurge and get balconies. We are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and so I got us a fantastic deal on an aft balcony wrap. My husband can hardly wait to get out on the balcony and watch the ships wake.

We are doing some meet and greets if you are interested in attending. There are a bunch of us staying at the Hilton Galveston Island Hotel on Saturday night and we are meeting in the lobby bar @ 8pm. On, Sunday we are meeting on the lido deck at the aft bar @ 2pm as well.

We just got off the Fantasy for our first cruise. We had inside rooms on the Riviera deck. It really did not bother me not to have a window. It looks like you have a window, and there is a flourescent light at the top of the window to give the illusion of light. The only reason that I'd get a room with a window next time is that I could have used more light for putting on my makeup. But other than that, I didn't feel claustrophobic or anything.

Hi,

Having had a inside, window, and balcony rooms, I would rate a inside #2 with the balcony being number 1. I do/did like the darkness that the inside rooms offer. Like others have said, the window and inside rooms are basically the same. Sometime you will have to treat yourself to the balcony room! Not sure if I could go back to a inside or window but if I had to pick it would definitely be a inside room. Stay out of the room and enjoy the ship!

Jeff
