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

The ship was great we loved the lay out especially the way the movie screen was on the lido deck, where you could lay by the pool ( which was packed everynite) or go up 1 floor and sit in a chair at a table and still watch the shows that ... Read more

At first sight the ship seems much smaller than we have been accustomed to. Height, therefore decks, are less than other ships we have sailed on. The decor is over the top with no imagination spared with regard to colours or lights. No ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on this cruise, the ports were great, the weather was nice and cool and the ship was in good condition. The splendor is showing a few signs of wear and tear, but nothing to greatly impact the condition of the ship. ... Read more

This was our 3rd cruise (although one was a river cruise) so I don't have much to compare it to. I am 42 and my husband is 45 and we felt quite young on this cruise to Canada. We were seated in the main dining room (Black Pearl) for the ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise (3 Carnival, 1 Royal Caribbean). This was, by far, our best cruise. This ship is huge, but we were able to get around it easily. Our balcony room was 8297, almost midship. Accomodations were very nice. Everything ... Read more

We had a wonderful time on Carnival Splendor, our second cruise. (Our first was Norwegian Jewel to the Western Caribbean). The decor of Splendor was whimsical. At first I did not like it, but by the time of debarkation it had grown on me. ... Read more

This trip was a quickly planned trip when Celebrity canceled our Alaskan cruise. We have never cruised out of New York and found it easy to get to and the embarkment lines, though long, moved fairly quickly. Once we got on board we found ... Read more
