Carnival Splendor is an amazing 4 night cruise that took us to a wonderful island also known as Moreton Island. All of the cabins that I have seen are shockingly very clean, as if there wasn’t even a speck of dirty items in the cabins. The cabins also have drinks just in case you get thirsty in your sleep and the beds on the cruise are extremely comfy and to the point that I miss them so much! As for the dining, there are countless options of meals all around the cruise. You could go to the Lido deck and get some pizza, burgers and chill at the bars there or you could head to the indoor restaurants or even go to the all free buffet with so much food that you couldn’t possibly ask for more! As for dinner, you also have a great option to go to such a fancy restaurant, either the gold pearl or the black pearl Restaurant depending on the card you receive that also have great entertainment. The three course meals in the Restaurant are mouth watering. The disembarkation for the cruise is very quickly and goes very smooth and you still have time to enjoy your breakfast, there you will find some workers that will greet you off the cruise that will wish you a great day. Everyday there are so much entertainment with tons of events, comedy shows and even amusing performances that will give everyone on the cruise a lack of boredom. You just can’t get bored if all of the fun activities! Don’t forget that there are also great movies at the Lido deck and an amazing arcade and casino! On the cruise there is many fitness activities you can do such as train your muscle and speed at the gym, shoots some hoops at the basketball court and even go on a running track that tells you how long a mile is! The cruise has amazing value for the cost of the ship for such a low cost for a big cruise! Public lounges are very comfortable and free, there are very friendly and helpful staff on the board and the Carnival Splendor family are very nice to each other. This fulfilling cruise has made a great first impression for cruises for me, my family and my friends. Here is a notable mention for the great staff that I met during the cruise that are so outstanding at their work that words can’t even explain how good they did. Although I don’t seem to remember most of the staff names here are some, Aaron who is the head of the Gold pearl resturant that arranges seatings and had very nicely helped us arrange seating next to our friends and family which we extremely appreciate, Dewa who works at red frog rum bar that is very friendly and funny and serves us amazing cocktail and is very nice of a server, Michael, who is an housekeeper that did an amazing job at making our room as cleanest as possible for the next people on the cabin, and even made us feel happy by creating animals with some spare bath robes for us, Martin, our funny and very friendly server who would always serve us food, but would also serve us great jokes, Ugi our other server that had pretty similar attributes as Martin that was also funny and very friendly.

9 families and my family were a group of people that all agreed to go on the cruise and we came from Nepal ,Bharat and Bangladeshi backgrounds and one thing we missed was our tradition spicy, masala tea so if you come from a background like us and you like Masala spicy tea, be sure to have as much of it before going on the cruise!

One of the only issues was the wastage of food from many and it would be good if this could be prevented.
