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

I have been doing cruise reviews on Cruise Critic for a few years. This was my 16th Carnival Cruise and I have also cruised NCL & RCCL. I do enjoy Carnival, but I also feel each line offers different experiences and should be ... 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

My husband and I booked this cruise as a quick 4 day getaway for us to celebrate good health, and some time away from our kids. It worked well with our schedules, and it left from NYC. Those were the main reasons for booking.....we've ... Read more

Overall this was a positive experience and great vacation for my family of 4. Positive: 1. We were in cabin 1117 on the spa deck. The spa privileges were worth the whole trip! Essential oils in the steam room, lemon water in the ... Read more

We traveled with two other couples and were told we would have adjoining balconies but did not. When we asked for the doors between the balconies to be opened we were told no. Our boarding passes stated we could smoke on our balconies ... 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

This was a cruise to celebrate our sister turning 60. I am not a germaphob, but first thing I notice was none of the purell pumps I touched worked. We left and Hour late no announcement as to why. Then customer service people extremely ... Read more

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

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
