Arrived Rome just prior to noon on the day of sailing greeted by storm clouds and rain showers. Embarkation procedure was fast and efficient. The weather did change however. It got worse! Outright downpours that would have made Noah a little frightful were the order of the day until we left the Mediterranean far behind. The actual crossing was accompanied by mostly fair weather. Days lounging by ...

First, I must say that this is only the second time we have cruised on Carnival.The first time was out of Miami some years ago. Carnival at that time had a reputation for appealing to the masses,rowdy/less discriminating crowd and on that cruise they lived up to their reputation.Enough said,we avoided sailing with them,and cruised many times with other cruise lines. In Oct 2008 we booked a ...

I am writing this review, as I have had invaluable advise and help on CC. We are 3 Kiwi's who were on our first trip to Europe, we had already been travelling overland for 2.5 weeks when we boarded Splendor. Training out from Termini was easy. As long as you have a bag on wheels, and are up for a bit of a walk (the platform is just about at the end number 28) the cost is only 4.50euro and ...

Embarkation was faster than a speeding bullet. It does help getting to port early before the buses coming from the airport. Stayed in Rome for a few days prior to sailing and shared a shuttle with the couple we were travelling with. Made life easy instead of carrying bags in the Termini Stazione in Roma and then in Civitavecchia. 140 euro plus tip for 4 people was well worth it and also used ...

My husband and I were on the October 17th Mediterranean Cruise on the Splendor. Since we are fortunate enough to get so much great advice and information from Cruise Critic, we wanted to share our two cents on our experience. We have cruised with RCI, Holland America, Celebrity and Azamara previously; Holland America being our favorite. Therefore, this was our first Carnival cruise but for the ...

Background: 4th cruise, 3rd on Carnival. Flew into Venice. We took the ACTV bus to the main Plaza Roma; from there we walked to our hotel that was near the train station, there is a new bridge that makes the walk short. Hotel Abbazia was very pleasant room, nice service at the front desk and a lovely European breakfast. ($470.00 for 2 nights). We choose this hotel due to departing by train ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

Having cruised before but never with Carnival, we had high expectations of the cruiseline and were completely let down. We were travelling with our toddler son from half way round the world and chose this cruiseline because of the reputation of 'family friendly' and childcare facilities onboard. Once there, we discovered there were only a dozen or so children on board and the average age ...

Hi, Just got off the Splendor in Rome yesterday. Had a great cruise with 15 of our friends. (By the way, for those people who may chose to take a little drink onboard, they had no problem with this. Some people took bags full of beer, wine, all types of alcohol made it through with no problem even at the ports of call) This is a great ship. I loved the movie nights in the pool area that ...

This trip was booked over a year and a half ago as a present for my husbands 50th birthday. Once we booked the cruise family and friends decided to join us and we eventually ended up with 12 people. From our very first phone call to Carnival we received outstanding service. Our PVP went out of her way to accommodate all of our requests. We ended up booking our Air and Hotel through ...
