Let me start with I am NOT a picky person and am very EASY to please. I do not single things out or try to get something for nothing. I had an AMAZING time and would cruise again and again. Just noticed some things that could be better. I'll start out with my back ground. This was my 6th cruise and my 5th with Carnival. I cruised with my husband (7th Cruise), 4 children 23 yr old dtr (3rd ...

A small group of five was extremely disappointed with Carnival. The adage that you get what you pay for seems to be correct in our experience. We have traveled with RC, HA, and our favorite Norwegian. This cruise was our eighth. For ease of review I will differentiate our concerns: 1- Infection control. No encouragement with the hand sanitizers. Especially as you enter the buffet area. ...

I've cruised multiple times on Royal Caribbean, Carnival and Norwegian cruise lines. This sailing was my wedding cruise, so I traveled this same ship ten months earlier for the repositioning cruise in order to assess if we wanted to advocate for our guests to join us on the post-wedding voyage. Had I not so recently sailed on the exact same ship, I wouldn't have had anything to compare it to and ...

We have never been on a cruise before as I thought we would be bored, I was so wrong. We had a wonderful time on the Carnival Splendour. The cabins are spotless and the staff were indeed splendid. The entertainment was good and there was always something to do. However, one very big downside was that the casino allowed smoking and it was horrible - my husband and I enjoyed spending most ...

This trip was so relaxing. I traveled with my boyfriend. We started the trip by using Faster to Fun. This allowed us to embark as soon as we got to the pier at 11:00 am and to get into our cabin immediately. This was nice because we had brought the two bottles of wine that we were allowed to bring. It is always a pain carrying heavy items around as you wait to get into the cabin. We stayed in ...

Hi! I just came back from this 9 day 8 night Bahamas cruise!! I had a fantabulouos time on the splendid splendor!! I enjoyed the 4 sea days and the 24 hour pizza station. At night, when the big screen movie is on, (Lido) you can get FREE popcorn!! Isn't that great or what?! Bahamas was awesome as I joined the tour which was only $30/person (very cheap)! I do have a suggestion for you if you go ...

My family been on a number of Carnival cruises. My wife been on this boat before, but this is my first time on Spender. The whole family when this time. The Cruise was book solid. -The cabin was good, beds were nice, shower need to be better. I hate that fact they took away my electric cord I needed to charge my devices. Got it back at end of cruise. Otherwise the maid and room service was ...

Having traveled with Norwegian, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean I can honestly write of my disappointment with Carnival. My disappointment on several fronts was so strong that I will not take this line again. I will explain: When my small group of five first arrived at the pier to register the excitement and anticipation of our eight days of fun and relaxation was joyful. This is where the ...

About us- We have cruised Splendor a couple times before. We love it because its a no-fly cruise for us. So, it was my daughter and I on this cruise. We live in the NY area so we took a bus/taxi into port. Easy as pie Embark- We boarded the ship around 230pm and there was no line. In 20 minutes we were on the ship. Dining- We had early dine at the Gold Pearl at 6pm and ate dinner there every ...

I have to say that Carnival's customer service is the worst I have experienced anywhere. To sum it all up Customer experience ranks low on their to do list. I've never felt more insignificant when dealing with Carnival's customer service team both when I booked my cruise and after I boarded the Carnival Splendor. Which by the way is not so Splendid. If you like mediocre food and entertainment then ...
