My husband and I had great time on the Splendor and would not hesitate on booking another trip on this boat. Embarkation was a breeze and so was debarkation. Carnival does a great job considering there is over 3,000.00 people on board.The staff is very friendly, our waiter in the dining room greeted us by our names the very first night. I have nothing bad to say about this cruise other than we should have stayed a little bit longer at the islands we visited.

The food at the Lido deck was excellent, there were so many variety to please everyone wether you are a Vegetarian or a picky eater. If anyone was not not satisfy with the many choices they had they are just plain miserable people who finds any reason to complain. I've cruised on Royal Caribbean and I prefer Carnival hands down. I'm on vacation and want to be on a fun ship. The ship itself was in very good shape, the staff was constantly cleaning an I didn't see any dirty dishes on tables as some previous people reported. The decor is very pink but you get used to it after the first day.

The cruise director Kevin is hilarious, a very fun down to earth person. The shows were good especially the comedy shows which can get very crowded. There are 3 pools on this ship, the most crowded of course is the pool on the Lido deck which also has retractable roof in case of bad weather. They also show movies at night and provide free popcorn. There are people they hog the lounger chairs but I did see the staff come around and remove towels left on chairs if it's not occupied for a certain amount of time.. There were quiet areas with lounge chairs that you can relax , read or just fall asleep. It was an enjoyable cruise.. Can't wait to do it again

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 6B

Cabin was in the back of the ship,very little traffic. It was a pretty big cabin due it's odd shape. The only thing is it vibrates only when we were are docking or pulling out of port other than that it is very quiet. Would book this cabin again

Port Reviews

Half Moon Cay

The most beautiful place on Earth. The water was like pool water, very clear and warm.. The sand was like powder In and out of the water. It is a private island owned by Carnival. There isn't a dock so we had to take a tender which is about a 7 minute ride to the island . We were there till 5:00 so Carnival had a BBQ for us on the beach which was delicious. I wouldn't mind going there again and again.. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Grand Turk

Grand Turk beach was nice, it is very rocky in the beginning but once you past the rocks the sand in the water is nice. I would recommend water shoes

Margaritaville was jumping the music, pool , the ambiance was a party atmosphere just wish we were there longer
