We have been on Carnival twice, not the conquest though. The food is very good,
they offer lobster on one night. They had a type of seafood every night, I remember them having the tiger shrimp. I am not a big seafood eater. I have heard alot of people that liked the sushi bar. Cruising is great, you can try new foods you havent before. If you dont like your meal they will bring you something different. Hope you have a great Honeymoon
We were on the Conquest in December. The food is good, but there was not a large amount of seafood. On our cruise, they were serving regular shrimp in lieu of the tigers and prawns. Of course, lobster and several types of fish.
There is a seafood "restaurant", Sur Mer, and some of their stuff was pretty good.
The Sur Mer seafood counter is well hidden. It's located above the aft section of the Lido buffet. There are 2 sets of stairs leading up to it, but I don't remember any signs depicting it and I found it by accident just looking around. I was with a group of 200+ and none of them were aware of it until I told them about it and this was 3 days into the cruise. Anyway, the serve many kinds of cold and hot seafood items. I can't remember all the items, but some included oysters, clams, octopus, mussels, squid, fish, sushi and a kind of fish stew with a lot of those items in it. That stew has a name, but I can't think of it right now. As I recall, it's limited to seafood and fries, so if you're like me, you would wind up getting salad and/or vegetables down the stairs in the Lido buffet and then going up the stairs to add the seafood. It's not that far, but it is a little inconvenient having to go through 2 lines. In my opinion, it's still worth it.
It all sounds so wonderful to me. I am so anxious to try new foods. As i sit here contemplating what to fix for dinner I keep thinking how sick and tired i am of eating the same ole stuff over and over again! Happens when you have kids that only like a few things !
I will definitely be looking for sur-mer! What kind of selection do they have? Is it mostly fried seafood (I know they have the bouillabaise)? Fried oysters sound good, haven't tried them that way before.
