This was my 4th cruise with Carnival and we have always had a great vacation. I am not impressed with this ship, bigger is not always better. I was unaware when I booked this cruise that it was spring break and there was going to be 1000 ... Read more

This ship was perfect and way better decor than any other Carnival ship. It's a BIG ship, but I love it. It's a nice way to burn that cruise weight. If you didn't like Carnival because of the ship design, try the Breeze. Embarkation ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise on the Carnival Line. We select Carnival mainly for the price and what we hear of other cruise lines. This was our first sail on the Splendor. I was a little leary of taking her as I'd read several reviews on her. I ... Read more

My overall impression of this cruise is that it is ok if you are a spring breaker. That is, if you will be too drunk to notice all that is iffy about this ship. My husband and I decided to take my parents on a short cruise to celebrate ... Read more

Drove from Missouri to Miami for my 4th cruise on Carnival (this time on Fantasy). In the journey we stayed at Best Western in Valdosta, Ga., I think they are one of the better hotels to that offer a hot breakfast. The weather wasn't ... Read more

This was our 8th Carnival Cruise, and we chose Splendor because the cabin was reasonably priced and we aren't that picky anymore where we cruise to, we really enjoy a lot of time on the boat. This cruise was disappointing in a few ways, ... Read more

This cruise had so many little and big things wrong with it I couldn't wait to be off the ship. Definitely not the ideal wedding anniversary. The boarding process is clunky and slow - I don't know if this is the port or the cruise ... Read more

We were on the Splendor sailing on March 20, the first sailing out of dry dock. Originally, I would have thought this was a good thing to have everything clean and no one on the ship to delay boarding. Boy was I wrong. It started when we ... Read more

This review uses experience on Royal Caribbean as a high water mark reference point; though the Breeze offers good value, it does not measure up to the quality of service, ship design, décor, and staff professionalism experienced on ... Read more
