Great Cruise to Alaska

Review for Carnival Splendor to Alaska

This was my 3rd cruise to Alaska and first roundtrip from Seattle. I booked after receiving a great offer on a solo rate when this ship was moved from Australia to Alaska. This was the first sailing for the ship in 2 years and despite a few issues (late clarification on required testing & ArriveCAN and spotty internet for the first day or so), it was a great cruise. Alaska never fails to impress. ...

My 8th cruise, my 5th with Carnival. I always have a balcony. Ship was being cleaned, counters being wiped down, and floors being washed, swept, you name it, it was being cleaned. Simon the cruise director was awesome. The best cruise director I have had on any of my prior cruises. The shows were spellbinding. The show 88 Keys was riverting. The casino was a lot of fun with a wide selection ...

This was our 23 Carnival cruise and was extremely disappointed. Upon our first use of shower the bathroom flooded. The first meal staff was scraping and stacking our plates at our table as we ate desert. We were served raw and I mean raw meat twice on lido. The eggs looked like soup. Everything was Luke warm at best many items have been removed. Only half the buffet was open on a full ship. ...

Our recent trip on Carnival was one that I wish we never booked. The boat is older and the employee's are angry. The boat is boring and the Cruise director is not very creative. The activities were more for assisted living entertainment. The shows were very good but it you spend two days at sea and the entertainment is Trivia and Bingo. The pools are just tubs. You can't swim in them and there ...

ABOUT OUR PARTY: My husband and I, both in our 60's, have cruised on this ship twice before in 2010 and 2012 when it was still the "Destiny." We were eager to see how the refurb changed the ship and to experience the Port of Charleston. This was a five-day cruise visiting Nassau and Half Moon Cay. We cruised with our daughter, her husband, and our 8 and 10-year-old grandchildren. THE NIGHT ...

We chose this for the price and itinerary. Balcony room comfortable. We had the partition removed between our room and friends making for a spacious sitting area we all enjoyed. I had heard complaints about the ship pitching and rolling but everything mild so far. Ship well kept. Food in dining room slower than other cruises but delicious and attractively served. We are a mostly vegetarian group ...

Much to be desired as the Magic was not magical.

We chose this cruise to celebrate my husbands birthday. First time allowing them to assign a room later. NEVER AGAIN!!! When we entered the room we were greeted by gnats - who brought their friends along and stayed with us the entire trip. The room had a damp smell that never went away. The first night I was awakened abt 2 am or so by LOD banging above us. Sounds of metal rolling around and ...

We have cruised quite a few times, including carnival, RC, and Disney….the cruise director on the carnival magic was the best so far, he was very involved, pleasant, and always talking with the guests on the boat. The food was pretty decent except for the portion amount of food….mashed potatoes orders and you get maybe a tablespoon worth, any side item was so minute, not sure why they put it ...

It was bad...never again will I cruise Carnival Magic and probably not Carnival again until they remember that the customer is why they are in business...their customer service was the worst. On top of that the shows were just an grade above a high school musical and the food was bland and tasteless. The port service started it out wrong by literally yelling at customers on embarkation and ...

First of all, me and my husband cruise often. We were so excited to get back to cruising after several cancellations the past two years and just in time for our anniversary. What a disappointment it was! The cruise was at full capacity after finding out they had given many guest free or next to nothing prices last minute. They were very short staffed, and this made for horrible service. ...
