Considerations: • We are a family of three in our 30’s with a 3 year old • We didn’t eat in the MDR • We didn’t go to any of the shows or comedy acts, so I can’t comment on the space or ... Read more

Just got off of a 4-day cruise from New York to St. Johns. When I got on the ship (it was my first time on Sunshine) I thought how beautiful it looked and how clean – very understated, but nice. Unfortunately, this was not my ... Read more

This was not my first cruise, however, it was my first and last with Carnival. The only reason we booked this cruise was because we live in NJ and it sailed from Manhattan. The food in the lido buffet was pathetic. Nothing in the buffet ... Read more

I would have liked to give it a 3 (average), but of the nearly 40 cruises we've been on, it was definitely in the bottom 10%, For me, the crowded nature of the ship - a result of Carnival adding cabins and reducing the public space when ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was on a ship we haven't been on before and it was going to Canada. Later in the year we are going to the Caribbean. Therefore, we were not interested in going there now. Also, this is our ninth time to ... Read more

This cruise was chosen for a family reunion; 15 family members set sail out of New York for a short cruise to Canada. The New York sail away was wonderful – past lower Manhattan, the Freedom Tower, Ellis Island and the Statue of ... Read more

It was the first cruise for my daughter and I. She is 31, severely handicapped and uses a wheelchair outside of the house. I wanted to try a different sort of vacation for us since Disney and Universal (definitely NOT Universal) are too ... Read more

First cruise-- was absolutely DE-lighted!!! Carnival staff all were helpful, friendly, and very accommodating. Cabin with two twin beds, 2nd deck aft, was more than ample with closet & drawer space aplenty. Bathroom certainly ... Read more

Like others I was a little stressed after reading some of these reviews but have to say my experience was excellent. It was a 4 day cruise to St. John/Canada. I have been to that port several times before so just got off the boat to shop ... Read more

First Carnival cruise! We didn't want to fly to go to a port so we drove from VA to NY. I have been on Royal Caribbean cruise ships before so this was a first carnival experience for my husband and I. We were celebrating our 15th wedding ... Read more

This was by far the worst cruise I have ever taken. It started off bad and ended bad. First of all, I just getting to the ship on October 4th was a hassle. Months and weeks before the cruise, Carnival stated in their emails to plan on ... Read more

The Splendor cruise ranked right down near the bottom of my nearly 40 cruises. I'll not blame Carnival for the 'rocking and rolling' caused by weather, they have no control over that. The staterooms were kept clean by the overly ... Read more

Well, let's start with the good: food was mediocre, dining room service was excellent when they remembered what we ordered, the casino.....ok so that's about it. Now the bad: there were more canes, wheelchairs and walkers than in a nursing ... Read more

I had been on the Carnival Legend twice 2003 and 2004. I didn't find the Splendor to be as outdated and worn as some of the reviews I read on this site. Embarkation was very smooth and went pretty fast. We were on the ship be about 1:15. ... Read more

What is this obsession with fun? And why do Carnival think that loud pop music, gambling and smoking constitute fun? And what is a fun shop? It's just a shop! Perhaps it is just cultural thing because we were Brits on an American ... Read more
