We sailed on the Carnival Journeys 9 Day Cruise on the Splendor. We sailed from Miami to Bermuda, Grand Turk, and Amber Cove (Dominican Republic North Shore). We had a great time!
We had a total of 10 in our group. Some of us drove, and some flew into Miami. I was in a group that drove down from Atlanta. We stopped over in Tampa the night before. We got up and headed toward Miami in the early morning of the embarkation day. There was an accident that shut down the highway near Fort Myers. We bailed off of I-75 at exit 131 and trekked on some state roads back to Alligator Alley. This cost us some time. We intended on getting to the parking garage at 11:00AM, we ended up there around 1:10PM.

This is the first cabin aft of the main Atrium/Lobby. It is on deck 7, starboard side. The location was great and it was relatively quiet. I do not recall any hall noise or music at odd times. I was able to sleep and rest in the cabin comfortably. The fridge did not get cold, and neither did the A/C. We brought a fan that remedied the A/C (we were very comfortable with the fan and A/C and we like to sleep in a cold room). Everything else was clean and in working order.
Had a great time snorkeling here. Be careful of the ropes in the swimming area. They will sting you like a jellyfish. There is an anchor and a cannon under the swimming area.
Poolside Cabana was amazing and worth extra cost. We split it with another couple. Had drinks for 6 and snacks. Right by the waterslide and zip lines and pool.
Horseshoe Bay and Dockyard were excellent.
Miami we just boarded and left.
