Choose this because of original itinerary . Eastern Caribbean - St Thomas, San Juan, Amber Cove and Grand Turk. Because of hurricanes Ended up with more of a Bahamas cruise- Nassau, Amber Cove, Grand Turk and was to be Half Moon Cay but that was changed to Freeport. Excursion for Freeport was a hop on hop off 4 stop tour. On a no window bus. 1 st stop was a tour of Perfume factory but ...

Will not take Carnival Cruise Lines ever again. Had this been my first cruise, I would never cruise again. Pros (yes a few) - easy check in, few lines, always could find a lounge chair, table, etc., pretty good live bands, good service (especially from the many Filipino crew members), and the common areas were always clean (but they did not use best practices in food areas), actual TV channels in ...

As a former NCL favorite, I decided to give Carnival a try because it was cheap,and the cruise planning was only a few months before the sailing date. The two of us, 21 and 22, were excited to explore the Splendor and have a great time, however what we had hoped for wasn't all that grand. The first night on the cruise, the 13th, we sat by the AFT adult pool and enjoyed a drink and the sun ...

Price was right and just wanted to relax. Have always enjoyed cruising on Carnival. However we were disapponted this time. Let me first list the positives. First, our room steward was very attentive. It felt like he was always there with a friendly greeting and asking if we needed anything. Secondly, the comedy club shows, as usual, were enjoyable. For the most part the service staff was ...

Cabin was clean, however our bathroom flooded on the last day and it spilled out and flooded the hallway as well. Also, the balcony door had a leak and our floor near the door and bed was soaked. We had a group of 8 and nearly all cabins experienced problems...included my now mother in law's room having no electricity or lights for almost 3 days. Food was sub par at best compared to the other ...

Embarkation was the worst. It was like this was the first time that Carnival did this. Food was not good. Ship was old and did not look good at all. Staff were okay and tried but you could see that they could not keep up. Shore excursions were bland at best. Shows were weak and not that entertaining. It looked as if no was trying and could care less. Getting on the ship was the worst I have ever ...

To start off this was my and my husband first cruise ever! Our experience on the Carnival Splendor was not a very good one! First off we arrive to our room and hours later when we get ready for bed I noticed there was blood stained linen on our soposive king bed ( they pushed 2 beds together to make it a king) I looked in the bed and also noticed short hairs (pubic) in my bed like the linen had ...

This was my first Carnival experience and I was really excited to go but was quickly disappointed. The rooms are outdated but ok but our balcony doors was smeared ,residue all over banister. My husband wiped the chairs and banister down so we could look over and sit on balcony. The restaurant food we were assigned to "The Black Pearl" food selection was good but the buffet was very limited and ...

I chose this ship because we were going with family friends that had already booked. I have cruised enough to know that this ship was very disappointing with what it offered. THE ENTERTAINMENT was very poor. The nightly shows were dancers and singers screeching to period canned music. The special entertainment for the week comedian Chris Tucker seemed to work off the cuff and mumbled a bit. ...

I chose this cruise because I thought that it would be a great way to spend a week with my family but the ship(NOT THE CREW) disappointed us in a big way by breaking one of the shafts to provide propulsion to one of the main propellers. It caused the officers of the ship and Carnival officers to call off our cruise in the middle of the week so we lost the opportunity to go to the two ports that ...
