A NEW YEAR'S CRUISE IS A MUST!

Review for Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Eastern

I had always wanted to sail on New Year's, but always found the cruises to be too expensive at this time. Instead for the past two years, I have sailed the week before Christmas which is a lot less expensive than when I usually sail in the summer. This year I decided that I was going to do a New Year's cruise just to try it out. I kept checking the prices for the Vista which is their newest ...

This was our 19th cruise and 17th with Carnival. We have cruised two other cruise lines and always enjoyed Carnival much more than the others. The last couple cruises we were surprised to see some changes that involved the removal of things that we liked about Carnival and unfortunately we saw more of the same on this cruise. We are loyal platinum members and are really starting to wonder if ...

Five of us went on the Splendor the day after Christmas. We had a great time! We jet skied on the private island which was just beautiful!. We enjoyed the ports but especially loved the beach at Turks & Caicos. Nassau was not as pretty but still had fun shopping at the straw market The specialty steak house restaurant was very good! The staff were polite and courteous I ...

We chose this trip because it fit into our schedule and for no other reason. It was a premium week and the prices were jacked up as it is everywhere. Having traveled on Carnival before we had some idea of what to expect. Nothing high end, but clean and most of the employees are very hard workers. The designers were extravagantly awful. Terrible colors and lots of odd choices. It looked like ...

Fun entertainment, but not the ship.

Needed a cruise that left after Christmas and this fit the bill and was longer than other companies offered. The ship looks like it needs an update. The decorations are outdated and very pink, seats are cracked and it needs a facelift. Not much to do on the ship in terms of activities. Two waterslides and mini golf did not hold my children's attention (ages 10, 12) and they did not want to go ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

For first time cruisers , the itinerary was 3 stops we had not encountered previously . Snorkeling in Turks/Caicos 2 days after Christmas made the trip for me . My own fault I didn’t book an island tour of Half moon cay in advance , but the island has plenty of beach and a hike up the coast shows off crabs and sea urchins . Nassau , well , is Nassau and we did take a tour of Nassau proper and ...

We loved the splendor, pink donuts and all. The spa was fantastic--huge and lots of great thermal rooms plus a thalassotherapy pool. There was a sauna and steam in the locker rooms for everyone, near the machines. There were 2 relaxation rooms, one upstairs. There were 2 additional steam rooms, and 2 other rooms with warm chairs. The aromatherapy steam room had a button to press where cool ...

We selected this cruise because we got a fabulous rate, no one was going to be home for Christmas, and Carnival has been my cruise line of choice for a variety of reasons. The ship is showing the need for some renovation, but it's in generally fine shape. The food is always enjoyable (I'm always amazed by people who complain about cruise food--how do they really eat at home? Who serves them? ...

This was our 17th cruise. We (my wife and I only on this trip) drove to Miami from Orlando. Left our car with our daughter, which made it easy overall. Took an Uber to the port. This was our first to the Miami ports. Boarding was incredibly fast. From the time we handed our luggage outside to getting to the Lido deck, it took about 12 minutes. We had read reviews about the color schemes of the ...

We decided to do this as a Christmas cruise with my parents as well as to celebrate their anniversary and my mom's birthday. This was my 8th cruise with Carnival so I kind of know what to expect in terms of how things go. I was pleasantly surprised by the embarkation process. They now put your room keys in your mailbox on the ship so there were no lines and simply needed to flash our boarding ...
