The Conquest-class is a class of cruise ships based on a Carnival design, originally known as the Destiny-class. The Conquest-class design is a lengthened, by approx. 59 feet, version of the Destiny-class design. Staterooms are identical to those of Destiny-class but due to the lengthening, there are just 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. Carnival Cruise Lines, a subdivision of the Carnival Corporation.
