Carnival Conquest -Leaving New Orleans

Celebrating our Anniversary on a 7 day cruise on the Carnival Conquest- Day 1-August 18,2013
The one thing that you can't avoid is checking in. Just get through it and the fun begins! 
We waste no time in testing the food. We went straight for the Blue Iguana Cantina. 
Straight to order anyway you want. Chicken, Beef or Fish with all the toppings!
Oh those were the best tacos and burritos EVER! 

After grabbing a bite and doing a little deck dancing aka an attempt of the
Electric Slide with Matt, our assistant cruise director, we did a little tour of the ship and caught the sunset on the Mississippi River. 

If you haven't left from New Orleans, it takes about 8 hours to get down the Mississippi River into the Gulf. That is your whole first night.

If you get sea sick then this is the night to take something. There are some sharp turns and the ship is big.

Time to check out our room and freshen up for dinner. That's right, time to eat AGAIN! Look what I found! I love these little guys. Also, we took some time to look through our Fun Times to see what's happening. I will post those later.
