The Conquest class is a class of cruise ships owned by Carnival Cruise Lines, a subdivision of the Carnival Corporation & plc. The Conquest design is an original Carnival design, based on the Destiny-class. The Conquest-class design was modified from the Destiny-class design by lengthening the ship by around 59 feet which expanded most of the facilities and adding a reservations-only restaurant ('The Steakhouse') above the Lido Deck. Staterooms are identical to those of Destiny-class but due to the lengthening there are more of them. Public rooms are nearly identical to those of Destiny-class as well. All public rooms in both classes are virtually identical structurally, but vary wildly in decor, with room names that match the ship's 'theme'. Ships that have received the Carnival 'Funship 2.0' drydock refurbishment have several public venues added (Guy Fieri's Burger Joint, the Blue Iguana Cantina and Bar, RedFrog Pub).
