Cruise from HELL

Review for Carnival Splendor to Asia

Cleanliness was non-existent on Splendor. Staff wiped tables with passengers' used napkins in both buffet & dining room...UGH!!!! Hand sanitisers were not enforced on board - half were empty anyway. Staff should have been present to watch that passengers used sanitiser to keep ship "germfree". Children joined into groups/gangs after the first few days to regularly run riot late evenings - ...

went on this cruise as it was repositioning and bringing Splendor to Australia for it's inaugural season. I travelled with a group of friends who also love to cruise. We enjoyed it very much even with the teething problems which were soon sorted. Cruise Director Lee was fabulous and worked so hard for the entire trip....always a pleasure to be around. Entertainment was great.....shows ...

Great ship but not for the Australian Market

This was the trip that brought the Splendor to Australia so my fist comments will be on the ships suitability to that market. I am a fan of Carnival being a Platinum Cruiser (I am for Princess as well) but not a fan of this ship for the new home, its just a poor fit. We are used to the Spirit and Legend so I compare on that basis, Lido is to small, every cruise to and from Sydney generally ...

As a family foursome travelling in 2 cabins we joined the Carnival Splendor in Singapore for a 15 night relocation cruise back to Sydney after a multi million dollar refit in Singapore. The ship which caters for more than 3000 passengers is the largest Carnival ship to be home ported in Sydney. Passengers were confused in trying to move from one end of the ship to the other as there were ...

This was a repositioning cruise from Singapore to Sydney, which hubby and I chose, to relax and refresh before the Christmas mayhem. First, the good points: our cabin stewards, and the rest of the waiters etc were fabulous. The food was also of good quality and lots of variety. However, it was all mainly downhill from there, with the embarkation process giving us an indication of what was to ...

Worse cruise ever - if this had been a first cruise would never have gone again

We like repositioning cruises. We liked previous Carnival cruises. We had even been on this ship before and enjoyed it. This cruise was chaos from the time we tried to book until we got off - the only thing that went smoothly was disembarkation. Getting on the ship in Singapore was difficult and unnecessarily complex. We hadn't been allowed by Carnival Australia to prebook shore excursions ...

Carnival Splendor - Just Okay

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

The Carnival Splendor has been given a makeover and spruced up a bit so as to operate out of Australia. A paint job and some new furniture cannot alter the fact that it has some really hideous decor. Attempts have been made to disguise some of it. The corridors and cabins are okay but the main areas where the designers (who must have been on drugs) were really let loose would require ripping ...

Carnival Splendor - Chaos from start to finish

I had sailed on the Splendor in 2013 from Santiago to Buenos Aires. It was wonderful. When I heard that the Splendor was being repositioned from Singapore to Sydney, I was really looking forward cruise. The cruise had to be booked through the Australian department but that meant finding the 800 number. But it was a disaster from start to finish. Carnival has two departments - the US and ...

Have had previous cruises with carnival but unfortunately this one was well below the standard of those.Embarkation was undisciplined and chaotic, most would have been given a specific boarding time but it appeared no one took notice of it, board as soon as possible.No organisation of crowd. Washing machines in the laundry was another dogs breakfast with only 1 machine available for 3000 ...
