Great crew, hit and miss on food

The ship is "old" but don't let that stop you. We didn't mind the pink decor. The crew was great. The people that served food in the MDR were great and once they got to know you, they would make suggestions on ...

Enjoyable family cruise

Very enjoyable on the pink ship. We had a blast and would go on her again. There are several pools all over the ship. So if one was full or busy, we could just go to another one. The spa was great. I loved ...

This cruise was planned because of the port of Bermuda. However it should have been scheduled for a different day as Bermuda stores were closed the first day there. We toured the island and took a sunset sail that ...

This was without a doubt the worse cruise we've been on .. What caused such a failure let me count the ways - 1) The Splendor needs to go a loooong way to be handicap friendly .. The elevators doors close ...

Keep Calm and Cruise On!

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 ...

Low expectations easily surpassed

Carnival offered a terrific deal for its Splendor repositioning cruise from the Mexican Riviera run to New York. We bit even though we knew the Splendor had a troubled past and some bad reviews. After signing up, we ...

Embarkation was quite efficient, however once on board the vessel, there were so many people getting on at once that it seemed quite overcrowded. We had travelled on the Inspiration 4 day cruise a little over a week ...
