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 I didn't find the Splendor to be as outdated and worn as some of the reviews I read on this site.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

My wife (Cunard-1, Carnival-3 cruises) and I (Cunard-1, Carnival-2 cruises) are 44 and 47 and we sailed without the kids for our 10th anniversary celebration. We drove to New York from the Toronto, Canada area and found cheap ($10 a day) ... 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

We booked a cruise on Splendor after enjoying a trip on Pride. Splendor is quite a bit larger, and the ship moves easily through the water, with little motion. But the overall experience was nowhere near as good as Pride. Food was just ... Read more

This will have been about our 15th cruise. We have sailed various cruise lines, Carnival being our most frequent. Embarkation was quick and efficient. Lunch in the Lido was the usual. My issues begin with the Cruise Director. He made the ... Read more

The Carnival Splendor was sold to us as a "party ship"! Two comments: 1. It was definitely NOT a party ship. (We are not spring chickens but the majority of the passengers on board had difficulty keeping up) 2. "Hurry ... Read more

This was my first real cruise on a large ship. It was enjoyable, I am glad I went. What was best: 1) The accommodation were fine, although we had just a medium-priced cabin. The cabin steward Gede was especially pleasant and ... Read more

Having been on numerous cruises on HAL, Celebrity, and NCL, this was the first time for me on Carnival. I had the opportunity to join some friends who had already booked this cruise, so got a fairly good deal on a spa balcony and my mom ... Read more

The last time I wrote a review about the Splendor it has a few cons. This cruise was one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever had. Embarcation was a breeze we got to the port early and were onboard in less than 30 min. We had an ... Read more

This was my DH and my 6th and 7th Splendor cruise, respectively, in the past year and a half (I took one without him). Most were to Saint John, although one of the Saint John's last year ended up in Bermuda. This is to say, we knew what ... Read more

Just got back from a 4 day cruise (on the Splendor-Grand Suite) from New York to Canada/New England stop. First off, there isn't much to do at St. John's unless you are a Kayak enthusiast. I stayed aboard while my sisters step off the ... Read more

We came upon this cruise as were going to be in the U.S. And thought it was a great idea to try a cruise and convenient that it was departing from New York too. I had read many of the previous reviews but thought it was good to keep a ... Read more

This cruise from the beginning was late. Late to depart, activities late or moved to a different venue, or cancelled without notice. Admittedly this was not an ordinary cruise, 4 days to St John, NB and it showed. Accommodations were ... Read more
