Do Not Cruise on the Splendor

This was my 6th cruise with Carnival and this ship was the most disappointing. For one, the décor was horrendous. I know cruise ships tend to be gaudy but the pink was just an abysmal color and WAY TOO MUCH of it. That alone made me not want to go on this ship ever again. Our cruise was booked for Eastern Caribbean ports but due to the hurricanes Carnival rerouted to the Western Caribbean ...

The cruise itself was great. Embarkation and Debarkation were the worst we have ever had and this was our 21st cruise! Totally disorganized and poorly managed. The ship was a little worn here and there but overall pretty good. The pink "doughnuts" everywhere were a bit jarring. Loved the decor in the El Morocco lounge with the palm trees, etc. We only say one of the nightly shows in the ...

We chose this 6 day cruise after a hectic 10 days in Orlando, so this was suppose to relax. We paid the extra to get this Scenic Ocean View cabin. When we entered our cabin we were wow’ed by the view directly out of the front of the ship and also the size of the cabin. We also noticed how cold the room was and the whistling sound coming from the ceiling grill as the force of the air from the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Terrible Ship

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 ...

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 ...

Several friends decided to take this cruise, as a way to get away and have a good time together. Overall it was a good cruise. however there were a few things that could be improved on. 1. the Muster drill, they had everyone stand out on the deck in 95 degree heat for over 45 mins. while they were looking for one person. I have taken several other crises and they would have you meet in the ...

We selected this cruise for its original itinerary. Eastern Caribbean. Due to hurricane Irma and hurricane Maria, it was changed by Carnival to the Western Caribbean. Our ports were Cozumel (our 4th time there), Belize, Mahagony Bay Honduras and Grand Cayman. At Cozumel we all just walked around port and rain came after about a hour and a half, so back to ship. Belize was nice (two of us ...
