We were booked on this cruise as part of a 3 cruise package, the other two cruises being on Caribbean Princess and Cunard QM2. We knew Carnival had the reputation of being a party ship but we had no idea of how bad the whole week would be. First some good things: the staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you; our cabin was nice, spacious and comfortable; dinner in the Black Pearl was good ...

Very Loud, Room shook from a vibration around our room so bad the bed literally separated from a king to two twin beds, things were falling off the shelves in bathroom. I put a banana in the trash can in bathroom and was still in trash can 3 days later. I was very disappointed in the comfort of the bed. One of the pillows had a sour smell to it. The carpet in our room was coming up and the ...

Worst cruise ever all the way through. I got to the room and no king bed as requested. The keys I got belonged to someone else, not us, forcing us to go stand in line to get it corrected. I downloaded the HUB app and saw a drink special. I went to the bar and showed the bartender before ordering and she said it was a good special. She gave me the beer than went to get the bill which was a ...

My cousin booked it then asked if we could join them so we did. This was our 80th Carnival cruise and we never would have chosen it. Why? Because it was 6 days and embarkation was at 3PM because ship was coming to new port from Miami same day. We were emailed and told dining was open seating but it wasn't! At 7PM doors to both dining rooms closed. Told we couldn't come back until after muster ...

Too many entitled people sail from Miami. Carnival Splendor was not so special. The cruise staff was friendly and nice but the other cruise guests were fighting in the next room and we had security there three times. Carnival did nothing to make it enjoyable even after complaint. Being a VIFP is not exactly a perk anymore. I feel really bad for my friend (who has been cruising with Carnival over ...

I got Salmonella poisoning on the Carnival Splendor; Carnival could care less.

My family and I cruise once a year but I can honestly say after our experience on the Carnival Splendor last week, we will never cruise Carnival again, and maybe never cruise again. I can pinpoint the undercooked over-easy eggs I was served in the dining room on Saturday December 26th. I started having diarrhea within 2 hours. I did not report it to the cruise line because we were getting off ...

This was without a doubt the worse cruise we've been on .. What caused such a failure let me count the ways - 1) The Splendor needs to go a loooong way to be handicap friendly .. The elevators doors close too quickly which caused me to stick my foot out to keep the doors from closing on me only to have my toes jammed and painful for the rest of the cruise 2) Leaving the ship and ...

We couldn't have asked for better weather or better destinations, however, the Carnival experience needs a complete overhaul starting with the Cruise Director. Here is a brief list of areas that should be seriously looked at by Carnival. Entertainment: Best entertainment on the ship is "Frank" in the Piano Bar. Well worth whatever they are paying him. The Cruise Director - Malcolm, useless and ...

First the cruise was suppose to be eastern Caribbean, they changed it to Western Caribbean because of Hurricane Maria and the damage to Puerto Rico. So they sailed us right into Topical Storm Philippe. One day without rain, Belize a real third world dump from what I saw. The weather was so bad we could not debark in Grand Cayman because of rough seas. We tried to get out even with the hard rain ...
