Amazing Ship

This was my husband's first cruise. So I wanted something that was short because I wasn't sure how he would like it. It was my first time leaving my baby (18 months) at home. I just wanted to have a quick trip for ...

Worst Carnival Cruise Yet!

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 ...

Splendor; Splendid to the Bahamas

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 ...

Turned gold this cruise

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 ...

Good cruise, but...

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 ...

Carnival Splendor; My Experience

The room steward was GREAT! The food at the buffet was not good at all. The pizza & grill food was very good. In Nassau we took a tour of the town with a local taxi, Alexander, he was GREAT! We were to have him ...

Great 1st Cruise

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 ...

You Get What You Pay For

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 ...
