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 ...

Hi, Just got off the Splendor in Rome yesterday. Had a great cruise with 15 of our friends. (By the way, for those people who may chose to take a little drink onboard, they had no problem with this. Some people took bags full of beer, wine, all types of alcohol made it through with no problem even at the ports of call) This is a great ship. I loved the movie nights in the pool area that ...

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 ...

My husband and I were on the October 17th Mediterranean Cruise on the Splendor. Since we are fortunate enough to get so much great advice and information from Cruise Critic, we wanted to share our two cents on our experience. We have cruised with RCI, Holland America, Celebrity and Azamara previously; Holland America being our favorite. Therefore, this was our first Carnival cruise but for the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

We thought our Carnival Splendor vacation was awesome! The food was good, the shows were great, our cabin was spacious, the staff was perfect. We could not have asked for a better cruise. The Carnival Splendor decor is not as bad as some people think. Yes, its very pink but I liked it alot. The pictures along the cabin hallways were cute. Like old fashioned pictures from the 50's or something. We ...

We and another couple chose the 9/23 sailing of the Splendor to celebrate our wedding anniversaries. (It was our 25th & their 30th.) The ship - I must say that there was too much pink. As others have said, very "Miami Beach" / "Art Deco" and I will add - "PeptoBismal". As overwhelming as it was on the first day, it became less offensive as time went on. The retractable roof on the Lido deck was a ...

this was the second cruise i have been with carnival and my 3rd cruise overall and i was completely impressed by it. we were completely let down before we even embarked. as 2 families we asked for adjoining rooms, which we were refused. we then asked for one of the rooms to be a triple or at least large enough to house 2 adults with 2 babies. we specifically asked for a double with enough space ...
