Carnival Conquest is a Conquest-class cruise ship owned and operated by Carnival Cruise Lines. Sixty percent of her staterooms have ocean views, and sixty percent of those (37% of all cabins) have balconies.[7] Carnival Conquest cruises the Western Caribbean from the port of Galveston, Texas. The ship's interior decor is of a French Impressionist style designed to complement her original port city of New Orleans. Carnival Conquest was renovated in 2009, receiving a new Circle “C” club (for 12- to 14-year-olds) and a large outdoor LED screen. Eighteen ocean view staterooms were given balconies during this process. [8]

The Godmother of the Carnival Conquest is Lindy Boggs, a former US Congresswoman for Louisiana.[citation needed]

Starting in late 2011 The Carnival Conquest will be moved from Galveston to New Orleans and making voyages of 6, 7, 8 Western Caribbean and 7 Day Eastern Caribbean[9]
