7 Day - Western Caribbean Departing From Miami, FL
We'll spend 7 nights on the Carnival Conquest sailing from Miami, Florida to Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, Mahogany Bay, Isla Roatan, Belize and Cozumel, Mexico. Sailing date is Saturday July 13, 2019 and we return on Saturday July 20, 2019.
Cruising aboard Carnival Conquest elevates fun at sea to an art form — the ship demonstrates a true mastery of the craft with an onboard collage of fun spots for you to enjoy, like Guy's Burger Joint, RedFrog Rum Bar and SkyBox Sports Bar.
There’s fun everywhere you look, from the dance club (great for people-watching) to the show lounges (great for show-watching). Alchemy Bar serves up not only one-of-a-kind drinks, but a complete experience for your senses. There's even The Punchliner Comedy Club, which gives stand-up comedians a microphone and a place to share their craft for your enjoyment.
Speaking of microphones, at Lip Sync Battle: Carnival, we’ll give you one to hold… all you’ve got to do is act like you’re singing into it. Bring your stage moves, future star! And let’s not forget Seuss at Sea, which turns classic Dr. Seuss stories and characters into big fun for all.
You don’t need to be able to tell a Monet from a Renoir to dine in our two artful dining rooms, you just need to be hungry.
You don’t need a performing arts degree to enjoy lively musical shows onstage at Playlist Productions, but you can say you’re experiencing art from your seat. You don't even need to read a rule book to enjoy Hasbro, The Game Show, where big fun takes the stage in a live game show anyone can enjoy.
With delicious food, bars and entertainment, Carnival Conquest features a scene for everybody.

What Previous Cruisers Are Saying...
My husband and I have been to numerous military marriage retreats where for the majority, we sit and watch a speaker for half of the day and then we leave. The BMWK Marriage Cruise does not compare to any of them at all. First, it was cruise that forced us out of our normal habitat and to rely on our spouse. Secondly, there was open dialogue on the topics and issues couples face. Third, there is nothing like black love. Seeing all the love in that room was truly a sight for sore eyes.
Our marriage was on "Life Support"..., but GOD !!! This is a MOMENT my husband is still talking about. Trust me..., this was an "All GOD Moment" !!!
Sitting in the airport trying to find words to describe our week long experience on the BMWK Marriage Cruise. I don't think I can describe such a feeling but if could I'll just leave it at absolutely AMAZING! ...so much energy, so many great couples, the bonding, the laughter, the sharing, the love... What a pleasure to be apart of the 1st of many to come.
The tools discussed have opened the lines of communication for us. We'd already started applying some of it on the cruise and were able to have uncomfortable discussions without shutting down and getting angry.
About Your Hosts...
Lamar and Ronnie Tyler are the husband-and-wife power pair behind Black and Married with Kids, the largest independent African American marriage and parenting site on the web.
Lamar and Ronnie were so fed up with the pervasive negative and distorted images of black marriage that they channeled their frustration into a passion for curating online media properties that celebrated and honored black families.
Armed with this vision and expertise in social media, Lamar and Ronnie have taken Black and Married with Kids from a small personal blog to an international brand under their own Tyler New Media, which also boasts seven independently produced films and an online following of over 540,000 Facebook fans.
Black and Married with Kids has been recognized and honored by some of America’s most established and respected media outlets. In 2012—for the second year in a row—they were included as two of Ebony Magazine’s Power 100, a list of country’s top 100 African-American movers and shakers, keeping company with President Barack Obama, Beyoncé Knowles, and Jay-Z. In 2014, the Tylers were finalists for the Black Enterprise Family Business of the Year Award. And in 2015, the Tylers were also named finalists for Infusionsoft’s Small Business ICON award.
Along with writing for and managing Black and Married With Kids, Lamar and Ronnie stay busy running Tyler New Media—producing, directing, and traveling across the country screening Tyler New Media films and speaking on marriage and business-related topics for a variety of churches, organizations and media outlets including ESSENCE Magazine, Parenting Magazine, Ebony Magazine, Sirius/XM, TV One, HLN, NPR, Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Washington Post.
Lamar and Ronnie are the happy parents of four children and call Atlanta home.
Frequently Asked Questions...
Who is this cruise for?
This cruise is perfect for married couples who are looking to get away from the rush of home and work to focus on and enjoy each other and their marriage. While this cruise is perfect for those who are celebrating a birthday, wedding or anniversary it’s also great for couples who need help or just want to add more tools to what they already have.
Will there be any private time?
This cruise will be the perfect mix of both group and and private time. This is the cruise that you planned. We’ve based how much training there should be by a survey we published earlier this year. Over 1300 couples filled out the survey in just two weeks and we built the cruise and agenda around those answers. While we do encourage you to link up with other couples who you can learn from, we also want you to spend intimate moments together looking out into the sea or on the beaches.
Is this cruise for adults only or can I bring my kids?
All of our workshop and social events will be adult only but you are welcome to bring your family along on the cruise. Carnival offers complimentary programs for your kids, that you will be able to utilize during our events.
