"Unfortunately, the one thing I will probably remember most is the hideous decor of this ship: pink circles everywhere along with black tile with green grout; flashing signs with lettering that changed colors; odd..."Read More

First Time Their Fault - Second Time Yours

Review for Carnival Splendor to Baltic Sea

First Time Cruiser

First Carnival cruise - Jubilee - about 15 years ago. This was a Panama Canal (part way in) to near the Equator...NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! No, it didn't break down on our cruise; it actually broke on the cruise before ours. Of course, they didn't bother to tell any of the passengers who were boarding for the next trip...nor did they try to fix the A/C. Heaven help you if you were a ...

I am 39 years old. This was me and my wife's 7th Cruise. First ever trip to Europe. We have sailed 4 times on Royal Caribbean and this was our 3rd on Carnival. We stayed at the Ramada Hotel and it was reasonably well appointed for the price. The one thing we liked was the king size bed, which we discovered is a rarity in Europe. The TAXI situation is an issue in Dover. It is a small town ...

This was our second Carnival Cruise and one of more than a dozen we have taken in recent years. We've found that each ship and cruise has its pro's and con's related to dEcor, destinations and operation. That held true with the Splendor. We were pleased that our pre-cruise concerns regarding 'crowd control' and access on a 3,000-passenger ship the equivalent to a multi-storied floating hotel ...

Embarkation was faster than a speeding bullet. It does help getting to port early before the buses coming from the airport. Stayed in Rome for a few days prior to sailing and shared a shuttle with the couple we were travelling with. Made life easy instead of carrying bags in the Termini Stazione in Roma and then in Civitavecchia. 140 euro plus tip for 4 people was well worth it and also used ...

Background: 4th cruise, 3rd on Carnival. Flew into Venice. We took the ACTV bus to the main Plaza Roma; from there we walked to our hotel that was near the train station, there is a new bridge that makes the walk short. Hotel Abbazia was very pleasant room, nice service at the front desk and a lovely European breakfast. ($470.00 for 2 nights). We choose this hotel due to departing by train ...

I am writing this review, as I have had invaluable advise and help on CC. We are 3 Kiwi's who were on our first trip to Europe, we had already been travelling overland for 2.5 weeks when we boarded Splendor. Training out from Termini was easy. As long as you have a bag on wheels, and are up for a bit of a walk (the platform is just about at the end number 28) the cost is only 4.50euro and ...

We had a 12 day cruise out of Rome and embarkation was fairly easy since i had entered most of the information online as requested, and we arrived late afternoon. We had 5 days in Rome previous to the cruise, had a great time so were a little disappointed by our cruise. Like others, i found the overindulgence in 'pink' to be somewhat offputting! The shops onboard had a good variety but ...

Having cruised before but never with Carnival, we had high expectations of the cruiseline and were completely let down. We were travelling with our toddler son from half way round the world and chose this cruiseline because of the reputation of 'family friendly' and childcare facilities onboard. Once there, we discovered there were only a dozen or so children on board and the average age ...

Traveled with my husband and child. The ship decor was to busy and pink. Not elegant, we did not feel we were in a GRAND ship or a new one TOO BUSY. The SHIP not spotless everywhere. I don't know if anyone else noticed but the cleaning crew needed to pay attention also to the dusting in the cabin and shelves. Also there was dust and dirt near the windows at the seating area at the Lido and ...
