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. The ship's interior decor is of a French Impressionist style designed to complement the 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. 
The Godmother of Carnival Conquest is Lindy Boggs, former US Congresswoman for Louisiana. Carnival Conquest currently sails out of Miami, Florida for year round 7 day cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean, and the Carnival Sunshine will replace her in New Orleans.
On July 7, 2013, the ship was diverted to Mobile, Alabama after a tugboat sank in New Orleans, causing a closure to the Mississippi River. Carnival then changed the next 7 day cruise roundtrip New Orleans into a 6 day cruise from Mobile to New Orleans. Passengers disembarking were provided charter buses to New Orleans.
While the charter buses were all bound for New Orleans, one of them, which was carrying 70 cruise passengers, broke down at a segment of the Interstate 10. Passengers were frustrated and as they had no air, they all had to open the bus windows.
