Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Interior

The crew: Wife and I, early fifties and our two adult kids 22 & 24. We have all cruised many times and my wife and I have also stayed at several all-inclusive resorts.

Like many people, we chose this cruise on Splendor for price and a couple of the ports. But price being number one.

Overall it was a very nice cruise and I am currently looking at cruises for 2019 and leaning on another Carnival cruise because of what you get for the money. I heard a few passengers complain about some issues and I believe if they go into their cruise realizing you are on a budget cruise line, it helps. For example, if you are a foodie and this is a big part of your cruise, don’t go on Carnival. Or if you like to have everyone in more formal attire in the evening, look for a different line. It is rather comical to hear people complain that Carnival isn’t as good as cruise line ____, but they took this cruise because of the cost difference. So you get more from another line that you pay more for. Makes sense right?

Cabin 4D

I'm not sure if #6295 is a 4D, but I needed to pick one. It is on an interior hallway and very quiet except for the noises I mentioned. Please look at my review about the room.
