Fun Cruise But A Little Disappointed
"We have cruised on Carnival three times and Royal Caribbean once. Until this cruise, we had preferred Carnival, but I think we'll probably consider another cruise line for our next trip. This ship simply didn't live..."Read More

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 The decorations are outdated and very pink, seats are cracked and it needs a facelift.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 ...

Took a bit to get over the decor. Not pretty. The ship is nice, the cabin was more than adequate. Inside, deck 1. The entertainment was not good at all. The shows although they had good themes and possibilities, the singers with the exception of one girl... were awful. They tortured songs from the 50's to the 90's. The cruise director MarQ was absolutely by far the best Cruise ...

Overall the ship was ran well, Carnival has been at this for a long time and have ironed out all of the wrinkles in giving people the most bang for the buck. The ship is not bad ,although the decor was not very impressive, nothing like the Victory was when it was new. The food on the Lido deck and the dining rooms were excellent. The service in the dining rooms were hit and miss, depending on ...

Cabin 8335 - Splendor Break- not so much

Cabin was under pool/ lido deck tables and chairs, heard scraping movement from 4:00 am, to 12:30 am. The movie by the sea people were noisier than the ones at the pool during the day !!! Our cabin 8335 is directly under this area. DO NOT B OOK this cabin, or ask CARNIVAL to re- insulate the room!! No rest on my FALL BREAK!!! Cabin itself was fine, just the noises above!!! The ship was ...

My husband and I took this cruise from Fort Lauderdale for our honeymoon. The original itinerary changed unfortunately due to the hurricanes which was out of Carnivals control. It was switched from St Marten, St Kitts, Puerto Rico and Grand Turks to Princess Cays, Ocho Rios, Grand Caymen and Cozumel. When we got onto the ship our bags took about 3 hours to come to our room so make sure you have ...

Embarkation went smooth, approx. an hour if you didn't have FTTP. Went to room to pick up the sign and sail card and room was ready for us(1:00PM). We were in cabin 7-324, our Steward Suphol and crew was awesome,especially when I get turned around on the ship, crew knew my name and where my room was located. Inside cabin, small but you only need a place in the evening. We took naps on the deck ...

From the time we were dropped off at Port Everglades to the time we were on the ship was less than 2 hours thanks to FTTF. Our cabin steward, Joseph, rocked! Loved running into him in the halls and chatting about his life on and off the ship. Had Gold Pearl early dining. LOVED our wait staff. We couldn't wait to see them each night. Seas were nice and calm so felt no sea sickness thank ...

We picked this cruise because of the itinerary. We flew into Fort Lauderdale Friday night before the cruise to make sure we were there in a timely manner. Embarkation went smoothly as could be expected. We had requested a 12:30-1:00 pm check in. We were a little late but had no problems. Rooms are supposed to be available at 1:30. Our room was not ready yet but we put our stuff in the closet and ...

We have cruised on Carnival three times and Royal Caribbean once. Until this cruise, we had preferred Carnival, but I think we'll probably consider another cruise line for our next trip. This ship simply didn't live up to our expectations based on our previous experiences with Carnival. We traveled with two other families. Our party had 14 people ranging in age from 10 to 52. We chose the ...
