Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2016
  • Destination: the Eastern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Premium Vista Balcony

6th cruise with Carnival and did 3 cruises before, got corner vista balcony, well worth the xtra $$, fit 6 people on balcony w/room spare, Splendor ok but better food options on other carnival ships, St Thomas this time went Coke Beach and was much more exciting then Megans Bay, snorkel Turks and beach there by ship very nice, going back on Splendor this year but wish it was Carnival Glory or other ship, like said food choices better on every other Carnival ship but we ate Steak House to avoid same food all time, no Guy Burger joint on this ship, great itinerary on this ship, going back to Western this year where been twice before, excursions great on Carnival... room was great, ship was nice but once again not as many food options as other cruises but still ok, everyone found something to eat, Always like Western cruise better but this was nice with Turks and St Thomas are 2 of the better spots, Dominican Republic was good but never find much to do in San Juan in January, a lot seaweed in January in water in PR,,, jd50

Cabin Review

Premium Vista Balcony
Cabin 9C 7447

Awesome Cabin!! Spend the extra $$ for this cabin but need to book it way ahead of time, January cruises sell out these cabins in March, 9th cruise and will never book another room but this, fit 6 people comfortable on balcony when other balcony only fit 2 comfortably, see side of ship as well as back, its like little private party spot for my kids and their friends, ages 19-22,, best cabin ever on a cruise,, back is best kept secret also!! SHHH!! jd50


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Amber Cove (Puerto Plata)

Did all inclusive beach with food and drink, great drinks and food was ok also

St. Thomas

did Coke beach instead of last time did Megans Bay, more activity at Coke beach and kids had fish eating dog biscuits out of there hand in water, yes didn't believe it myself till I seen it with my own eyes

San Juan

Went to beach again, nice place just too much seaweed in water in January all time, my friends who come from there say not good time for water cause of storms bring in seaweed in January but weather beautiful

Snorkeling

not as nice as belize but still beautiful Blue water, plenty fish and beach next to ship very nice and good place to eat
