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

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

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

We planned this cruise for more than a year to celebrate our retirement so we were really looking forward to it. I wish I could rate it better for the sake of the outstanding crew, but it was a bit of a disappointment. Not everything was ... 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 I didn't find the Splendor to be as outdated and worn as some of the reviews I read on this site.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

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
