Excellent cruise

We had a great week on the splendor. The food was excellent and there were ample activities. We especially loved the cruise director, MarQ. We did your time dining and only had to wait once. Our head waiter was Mortel. Again, excellent. We chose a ocean suite which was very nice. We noticed a decrease in cabin attentiveness over past cruises and had to ask for standard items several times, ...

We have cruised multiple times, mostly with Carnival. Last year we tried Royal Caribbean. It was nice but we found we missed Carnival. I use a wheelchair full time and Carnival always provides excellent service to me. The food was very good. We ate in the dining room (Black pearl) every night. I eat a lot of chicken and there were 2 new dishes that I found to be delicious. We had buffet most ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our 1st cruise and we had a great time. Embarkation was easy, we were even a few minutes early and that was no problem. When we walked on the ship we went right to guest services to add our credit card to our account. It took 2 minutes and off we went to enjoy our vacation! Our stateroom was on the 7th floor aft. The room was a great size for the 2 of us. However, I could ...

Check-in was smooth, no problems. Ports: all good. Tender to Belize terminal was 20 minutes. 1st time to Belize, unless you have an excursion there's not much at the terminal. Food: Buffet was average. Dining room was oK Service: Excellent. No complaints here. Entertainment , shows: the worst I've been , on many Carnival cruises. Mostly Hasbro game shows, and unprofessional ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Service was very good, front desk, steward, restaurants, but 7 days is too much to find all perfect. We experienced some not so cool events . Dining: Some of the waiters are always happy, showing great service, others slow and forced. in the Gold Pearl, Enez Can Doğan was wonderful always with a smile and great recommendations. Norman always very attentive and there was a girl from Thailand ...

The crew: Wife and I, early fifties and our two adult kids 22 & 24. We have all cruised many times and my wife and I have also stayed at several all-inclusive resorts. Like many people, we chose this cruise on Splendor for price and a couple of the ports. But price being number one. Overall it was a very nice cruise and I am currently looking at cruises for 2019 and leaning on another ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

With all the talk about the ship décor, we hardly noticed it. We cruise to relax and enjoy the experience, not to spend our time picking things to death. That said let me tell you this was one of the most enjoyable cruises we have taken thanks mostly to the outstanding staff on this ship. First, if you ever get to take a cruise with Marc Q as director do yourself a favor and book it ! He will make ...

Carnival Splendor is an older ship and you can definitely tell. Well maintained and clean though. Food was hit and miss in the dining room. Elsewhere food was average. Can't beat the price of the cruise...I mean you're at sea still, right?! Service was average. Same as the entertainment. You definitely get what you pay for...but again, can't complain because you are on a cruise!!!!! Had a great ...

Overall a good cruise. MarQ was a great cruise director! Service was Good! The shows were entertaining, and the music around the ship was good as well. The comedians onboard were okay. It rained at one of the ports (Roatan) and the decks were soaked-a hazard as many people slipped and fell. Despite this- the ship was kept clean and maintained It seems as though Carnival has cut back ...

NIce ship - Think PINK! Did not have a Red Frog Pub or Guy's Burgers but did not seem to miss it too much. Food was very good with enough of a variety. The main pool on Lido Deck had a retractable roof that came in handy a couple of evenings with rain. Guests were still able to sit out on deck and watch the Dive In movies. Loved the adult pool in the aft. Beautiful view off the aft ...
