Review for Carnival Splendor to Cruise to Nowhere

I have been cruising and loyal to Carnival for years now. Mainly because of the great service, fun times and awesome prices. Carnival Splendor changed my perception of Carnival completely. Where do I begin? *It took 2.5 hours standing and waiting in the HOT sun just to board the ship. *We were provided luggage tags only to find out that they were not checking luggage. (would have been nice ...

This is our 5th cruise with Carnival and it will probably be our last. Sad to say because the Cruises to Nowhere fit our schedule as well as our budget. I'm not the type of person to complain if there weren't any chocolates left on my pillow or anything like that so take this as an honest review. We received an email that they are trying something new---staggered check-in and to arrive between ...

Embarkation: Couldn't ask for anything better. It is a shame the port in Norfolk is so underutilized, it is a nice place, we got through security and checked in quickly and were on the ship by right before noon after arriving at 10:15am. Dining: For something fast and quick Guys Burgers, Blue Iguana and the pizza place were all great. The Steakhouse is an absolute must if you are a foodie and ...

This was my eighth Carnival cruise, taken solely to help me achieve Platinum status this summer. I talked 4-5 people who were on the boat for the same reason. Positives - Blue Iguana Cantina (breakfast and lunch), Guy's Burger Joint, and the opposing bars on deck. Very cool setup that no other cruise line has. The burgers and burritos very good compared to typical buffet fare. The combination ...

Our cruise was a 2 night cruise to nowhere out of Norfolk, Virginia. Travelers were my 12 year old daughter and I. It took us just about 2 hours from the time we arrived at the port until we were actually on the ship. We arrived at the port, and were directed to parking- which was a drive away (close to 2 miles away), and parking was $15/day. We finally found it, following the instructions ...

Just a short review as it was a short cruise. Carnival does the weekend "Cruise to Nowhere" out of Norfolk to round out the Glory' weekly calendar during it's Caribbean season (the ship goes up to Boston/Canada for the summer starting in June). The wife and I got a last minute deal on Cabin 2483, which is an ocean view at the very aft end of the ship. Two remarks for those trying to choose what ...

A bit of background - prior to this cruise we had only sailed with Disney Cruise Line. We are Disney fans, so it is a natural fit. However, we had been exploring options as to what to do for our 5th Anniversary. We had a limited amount of time, and after looking for a few weeks I found Carnival's two night cruise to nowhere departing the day after our anniversary. So we decided that was a great ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We are first time cruisers so we picked the cruise to nowhere as a trial run to see if we would be interested in doing it again. Embarkation: We were told that we could board the ship at around 11am so we wanted to be early so we could get the most out of this experience. We drove to the suggested parking lot and was told that we couldn't park yet because they weren't through unloading the ...

First let me clairfye that this is my 9th cruise, and after being on may 7 day cruises this one obviously wasn't one of the "best" cruises but it was in fact very fun for the short time we were on the ship. Since we are from virginia, we figured norfolk would be the ideal port to leave from right? WRONG. Norfolk is a very crammed city that just can't handle being home to a ship as huge as ...

Embarkation was somewhat slow. After we parked our car and shuttled to the port it took almost two hours from the time we arrived (about 1230) till we boarded. The local roads surrounding the port seem inadequate for the amount of traffic that results from the folks arriving and leaving the ship. Our advise is to try to get there early; otherwise, you will be stuck in a line for over two hours. ...
