We have cruised multiple times, mostly with Carnival. Last year we tried Royal Caribbean. It was nice but we found we missed Carnival. I use a wheelchair full time and Carnival always provides excellent service to me. The food was very good. We ate in the dining room (Black pearl) every night. I eat a lot of chicken and there were 2 new dishes that I found to be delicious. We had buffet most ...

Service was very good, front desk, steward, restaurants, but 7 days is too much to find all perfect. We experienced some not so cool events . Dining: Some of the waiters are always happy, showing great service, others slow and forced. in the Gold Pearl, Enez Can Doğan was wonderful always with a smile and great recommendations. Norman always very attentive and there was a girl from Thailand ...

We had a great week on the splendor. The food was excellent and there were ample activities. We especially loved the cruise director, MarQ. We did your time dining and only had to wait once. Our head waiter was Mortel. Again, excellent. We chose a ocean suite which was very nice. We noticed a decrease in cabin attentiveness over past cruises and had to ask for standard items several times, ...

The crew: Wife and I, early fifties and our two adult kids 22 & 24. We have all cruised many times and my wife and I have also stayed at several all-inclusive resorts. Like many people, we chose this cruise on Splendor for price and a couple of the ports. But price being number one. Overall it was a very nice cruise and I am currently looking at cruises for 2019 and leaning on another ...

This was our 1st cruise and we had a great time. Embarkation was easy, we were even a few minutes early and that was no problem. When we walked on the ship we went right to guest services to add our credit card to our account. It took 2 minutes and off we went to enjoy our vacation! Our stateroom was on the 7th floor aft. The room was a great size for the 2 of us. However, I could ...

Check-in was smooth, no problems. Ports: all good. Tender to Belize terminal was 20 minutes. 1st time to Belize, unless you have an excursion there's not much at the terminal. Food: Buffet was average. Dining room was oK Service: Excellent. No complaints here. Entertainment , shows: the worst I've been , on many Carnival cruises. Mostly Hasbro game shows, and unprofessional ...

A NEW YEAR'S CRUISE IS A MUST!

10+ Cruises • Age 40s

I had always wanted to sail on New Year's, but always found the cruises to be too expensive at this time. Instead for the past two years, I have sailed the week before Christmas which is a lot less expensive than when I usually sail in the summer. This year I decided that I was going to do a New Year's cruise just to try it out. I kept checking the prices for the Vista which is their newest ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

For first time cruisers , the itinerary was 3 stops we had not encountered previously . Snorkeling in Turks/Caicos 2 days after Christmas made the trip for me . My own fault I didn’t book an island tour of Half moon cay in advance , but the island has plenty of beach and a hike up the coast shows off crabs and sea urchins . Nassau , well , is Nassau and we did take a tour of Nassau proper and ...

We chose this trip because it fit into our schedule and for no other reason. It was a premium week and the prices were jacked up as it is everywhere. Having traveled on Carnival before we had some idea of what to expect. Nothing high end, but clean and most of the employees are very hard workers. The designers were extravagantly awful. Terrible colors and lots of odd choices. It looked like ...

Five of us went on the Splendor the day after Christmas. We had a great time! We jet skied on the private island which was just beautiful!. We enjoyed the ports but especially loved the beach at Turks & Caicos. Nassau was not as pretty but still had fun shopping at the straw market The specialty steak house restaurant was very good! The staff were polite and courteous I ...
