Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by Ginapier
- Sail Date: April 2013
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
We booked the grand suite since it was the best they had to offer. No butler or concierge service and no extra perks at all for this suite. Priority embarkation was poor compared to other ships that escort you on the boat into your room. The suite was a decent size, good sized balcony..bathroom had a bidet, other than that..nothing special.
The boat itself had an odd decor, not too elegant. The ships layout was a little odd, has to go up and down to get to the dining rooms...
The food was fabulous. I gained 8 pounds in 8 days! There were plenty of choices and variety and everything was great. If you can get reservations for the chef table, it is a must do! Highlight of the trip!
I'm very picky and have high expectations, I want nothing but the best... From a scale of 1 to 10 ..this was a good 7. For the price, certainly worth it.

SnorkelingWe did the power snorkel. It was fun but for the third largest barrier reef, there wasn't too many fish to see. Snorkeling over the wall was cool but... Not the best excursion.View All 145 Snorkeling Reviews
