Myself and my wife just got off the 4 night trip on the Splendor from NY to Saint John, Canada. This was our second cruise so we don't have much to compare it too but we thought this was a great relaxing trip. After an initial ... Read more

First the positive. Carnival lives up to its reputation of being a fun ship. The activities never stop and the members of the activities staff are excellent. Our cabin 8244 was very nice and there was plenty of storage space for all our ... Read more

This is my personal experience and opinion with Carnival! Three sisters looking forward to their first cruise vacation together. Very seasoned at cruising but wanted to try Carnival. Leaving out of NY was very convenient. We did have ... Read more

Never again will we be on a cruise that embarks and returns to Manhattan. Having lived and worked in New York in the past, the cruise experience proved again that New York City is for folks who consider self-abuse akin to living some sort ... Read more

I was impressed with just about everything. The food and the service were top notch. I was called by name from day 1. Assigned seating dining was outstanding. Open seating dining was just okay. The buffets were great with lots of variety ... Read more

This was my 8th Carnival cruise and my worst. The good: Carnival continues to impress me with the quality of food, food service, cabin, cabin service, and shore excursions for the money. Boston, 6 out of 10. Portland, 8 out of 10. ... Read more

Embarkation: Rainy NYC but surprisingly enough, did not take all that long to check in. My daughter and I were on board in less than an hour. Very friendly check in agent. Cabin: Ocean view cabin on Deck 2 mid-ship. My memory for names is ... Read more

This being my second Carnival Cruise, I've learned to not expect anything more than you pay for and that is my ultimate expectation with Carnival. I'm not speaking negatively, its just that the consumer/cruise-goer should go in with this ... Read more

This was our first time on Carnival after multiple trips on both Norwegian & Royal Caribbean. I will attempt to break down each area of the ship as we experienced it. Embarkation-Extremely disorganized. For some reason, at check ... Read more

I have been on four cruises; one Norwegian, one Royal Caribbean, Carnival Freedom and now Carnival Splendor. I have also had the opportunity with my family to experience an inside cabin, ocean view stateroom, and balcony staterooms. I went ... Read more

Wow, I was really surprised by the bad reviews. Maybe it's all individual perception. I did a Super Saver booking in June for the last 5 night cruise to Canada from NYC. Got to the terminal on Saturday at 2:50 and was in my room at 3:30. ... Read more

After reading several negative reviews, I feel compelled to defend the Splendor, which is a fine ship with a hard-working crew. It does have issues - many can be traced back to corporate management - but I just returned from my 4th sailing ... Read more

So we got a great deal on this cruise for being a past cruiser. That should have tipped us off that cheaper most certainly doesn't equal better!!! We had nothing but problems from start to finish on this boat. We boarded quickly and the ... Read more

We are a couple in our early eighties. We have sailed with many cruise lines, each one equal to or lovelier than the last. Then two weeks ago we boarded the Carnival Splendor and were more then disappointed. We choice that cruise because ... Read more

After reading all of the other reviews on this site, I'm not even sure why I am writing this. Apparently other cruise lines take Cruise Critic seriously, but Carnival does not. Hopefully we will enlighten more future passengers. We had ... Read more

After a few year break from Carnival we decided to try them again. The last times we went we had good experiences each time. I guess we should had known it was going to be a bad cruise when the first morning at the buffet they ran out of ... Read more

Carnival Splendor is a nice ship that is well decorated inside and out. The crew was friendly and helpful during this trip but the activities on the ship were lacking. More dance classes would have been a great way of spending the sea days ... Read more

I just returned from a seven day cruise to New England and Canada (from NYC). I am going to give you a very condensed, to-the-point, review. 1. EMBARKING -- no problem whatsoever. We breezed through the process so was pleasantly ... Read more

First off, let me say I have only been on one other Carnival ship before, the Carnival Magic. Great ship! Most of my cruises have been with NCL. That being said, the Carnival Splendor is in need of it's retrofit more sooner, than later if ... Read more

We have cruised on The Splendor before, when it was cruising the Western Mexico coast. It was fairly new then and seems to have held up just fine! Boarded in New York, which went fairly smoothly. We flew to Newark and caught Carnival ... Read more

Having grown up in Minnesota, I retired in the South to get away from cold weather. This probably is why I prefer cruises to warm areas more then the North. Our favorite port on this cruise was Boston. A lot to see and enjoy with one day ... Read more

This was our 5th cruise, 1 AMA (Danube), 2 Norwegian (Alaska & Mediterranean), 1 Princess (Baltic). We were not expecting much from Carnival and WOW! We were surprised! We had a spa room-deck 11 (1107) which entitled us to unlimited ... Read more
