We chose this cruise because of it fitting in prior to another cruise sailing on 5/27/16. We have sailed Carnival before and this was the worst ship yet. Employees seem unhappy and agitated. Bar tenders are rude if you correct them on a ... Read more

Enjoyed the Splendor very much. It is a lot like the Conquest style ship but has a few nuances that the others don't. There is sooo much pink in the decor. My wife is legally blind and the crew was very good in helping her when I ... Read more

This was my tenth or eleventh cruise. It was wonderful. It was a short cruise, 5 days, so we extended the vacation a bit by staying at the nearby Marriott the night before. Embarkation was well organized and the room was available ... Read more

This is our 6th cruise, first on Carnival. It was a difficult decision to go with Carnival, the upside is we recently moved to Suffolk VA and it was a very convenient cab ride to Norfolk. We had a Grand Suite which was huge as was the ... Read more

This was our third Carnival cruise. Our main reason for taking this cruise was the port location (local to us). We knew the ship had not undergone the 2.0 upgrade, but we were prepared for that. The overall cruise experience was great. I ... Read more

We really enjoyed ourselves on this cruise. I would say the staff made the trip. First our Cruise Director was Kevin. He kept it light, and fun. Basically he had a great sense of humor and could take it as well as give it. Second we ... Read more

A small group of five was extremely disappointed with Carnival. The adage that you get what you pay for seems to be correct in our experience. We have traveled with RC, HA, and our favorite Norwegian. This cruise was our eighth. For ... Read more

We have never been on a cruise before as I thought we would be bored, I was so wrong. We had a wonderful time on the Carnival Splendour. The cabins are spotless and the staff were indeed splendid. The entertainment was good and there ... Read more

This trip was so relaxing. I traveled with my boyfriend. We started the trip by using Faster to Fun. This allowed us to embark as soon as we got to the pier at 11:00 am and to get into our cabin immediately. This was nice because we had ... Read more

Okay, I'll admit it. I've been a cruise snob for over 30 years and always considered Celebrity my mid level cruise line favorite (until lately). Tried Norwegian a few times but last one was just "meh". Last cruise on RCCL ... Read more

I have to say that Carnival's customer service is the worst I have experienced anywhere. To sum it all up Customer experience ranks low on their to do list. I've never felt more insignificant when dealing with Carnival's customer service ... Read more
