Carnival Conquest undergoing upgrade

The New Orleans-based Carnival Conquest is undergoing a two-week, multimillion-dollar refurbishment in dry dock in Freeport, The Bahamas.

The work is part of Carnival’s $500 million upgrade of its cruise ship fleet.

The changes in dining, bar and entertainment include Guy’s Burger Joint, developed in tandem with Food Network personality Guy Fieri; an EA Sports Bar; and the poolside RedFrog Rum Bar and BlueIguana Tequila Bar.

The Conquest returns to service at the Port of New Orleans Oct. 28, the Miami cruise line said in a news release.
