Worse cruise ever - if this had been a first cruise would never have gone again

We like repositioning cruises. We liked previous Carnival cruises. We had even been on this ship before and enjoyed it. This cruise was chaos from the time we tried to book until we got off - the only thing that went smoothly was disembarkation. Getting on the ship in Singapore was difficult and unnecessarily complex. We hadn't been allowed by Carnival Australia to prebook shore excursions ...

I choose this cruise as the Splendor was in dry dock in Singapore before relocating to Australia and thought that the itinerary would suit my wife and myself . How wrong was I . Embarkation was a disaster . The check in people didn't open the desks for nearly 2 hrs after they were supposed to and then there was a stampede of people all trying to get on board at the same time . They should have ...

Great ship but not for the Australian Market

This was the trip that brought the Splendor to Australia so my fist comments will be on the ships suitability to that market. I am a fan of Carnival being a Platinum Cruiser (I am for Princess as well) but not a fan of this ship for the new home, its just a poor fit. We are used to the Spirit and Legend so I compare on that basis, Lido is to small, every cruise to and from Sydney generally ...

Relocation Cruise, Singapore to Sydney

We chose this cruise for a couple of reasons - firstly because it was sailing out of Singapore and we hadn't done that before, and secondly because one of the ports was Komodo Island which we were looking forward to very much. Embarkation day was a complete mess. The port authority process was ok but then we went to the check in counter for Carnival where we were given receipts for our ...

Carnival Splendor - Chaos from start to finish

I had sailed on the Splendor in 2013 from Santiago to Buenos Aires. It was wonderful. When I heard that the Splendor was being repositioned from Singapore to Sydney, I was really looking forward cruise. The cruise had to be booked through the Australian department but that meant finding the 800 number. But it was a disaster from start to finish. Carnival has two departments - the US and ...

As a family foursome travelling in 2 cabins we joined the Carnival Splendor in Singapore for a 15 night relocation cruise back to Sydney after a multi million dollar refit in Singapore. The ship which caters for more than 3000 passengers is the largest Carnival ship to be home ported in Sydney. Passengers were confused in trying to move from one end of the ship to the other as there were ...

I chose this cruise to go to Komodo Island. On boarding I found my cabin (no one giving directions at all) upon entering what was supposed to be a wheelchair cabin I found I could not access the toliet as the beds blocked the way. Contacted room steward and was told someone would come sort it out it took 7 hours before someone arrived not to sort it out but to ask if I wanted my room done ...

went on this cruise as it was repositioning and bringing Splendor to Australia for it's inaugural season. I travelled with a group of friends who also love to cruise. We enjoyed it very much even with the teething problems which were soon sorted. Cruise Director Lee was fabulous and worked so hard for the entire trip....always a pleasure to be around. Entertainment was great.....shows ...

Cleanliness was non-existent on Splendor. Staff wiped tables with passengers' used napkins in both buffet & dining room...UGH!!!! Hand sanitisers were not enforced on board - half were empty anyway. Staff should have been present to watch that passengers used sanitiser to keep ship "germfree". Children joined into groups/gangs after the first few days to regularly run riot late evenings - ...

Have had previous cruises with carnival but unfortunately this one was well below the standard of those.Embarkation was undisciplined and chaotic, most would have been given a specific boarding time but it appeared no one took notice of it, board as soon as possible.No organisation of crowd. Washing machines in the laundry was another dogs breakfast with only 1 machine available for 3000 ...
