What configuration did you book? A triple or a quad? If you know the cabin # you are looking at, you can go to the deck plans and look to see what beds it has. If you have a little more info, we can say what the extra bed(s) would be. There are triples with two twins and one convertible sofa, or a quad, with a convertible sofa and a upper bunk.

The inside is 185 s.f. and the OV is 220 s.f. on conquest. You will have a sofa in the OV you dont get with the inside. (the sofa may be a convertible sofa though, if thats what a 3rd person is using for a bed).

Iv used Holiday Inn Superdome for $99 twice that has free cruise parking. I have also used the Drury which is very nice and includes a free happy hour and good breakfast and just have the best rooms, and they have parking cruise package usually for $35 for parking, though it has gone up and down a few times. Both hotels are on the outskirts of the French Qtr, so you can walk around the qtr the night before.

Iv done Conquest 4 times and have it booked again, so if you have other questions, ask away.

Found it!!! Here is a link to hotels that offer cruise deals. I have found it a starting place, no better. It will say prices "starting from" and its almost always higher when Iv called.

At least you know who is catering to cruisers and what they offer.

It does show the Holiday Inn Superdome .. and even better has phone numbers so you can at least call up hotels and get a feel for when you are going.
