Carribean Cruise

This is a very great ship. We love it. I have been on it for five cruises. Cruising is a great way to enjoy so many vacation activities all included in one trip. Everyone should cruise at least once, or twice, or thrice...!

Carnival Splendor

July 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Western

Splendor is my favorite Carnival ship!

The Cloud 9 Spa and the dining halls were my favorite parts of the cruise. I greatly enjoyed the Punchliner. I had been on the Splendor 4 times before and I noticed that there were some changes in service. I had taken my daughter, aged 32,  along for her first cruise. I had expected her to receive all the same amenities and treatment that I had received the first time I cruised, which was on the Splendor. There was no champagne upon arriving in the atrium nor any champagne going around up on Lido deck! There were only 3 towel creations on this 6 night trip!. What happened to the chocolates on the pillows in the evening? Our steward did not refer to us by name the entire trip. There were no robes in the cabin. There were no complimentary toiletries in the bathroom and the mini-bar was barren. At breakfast time all of the meat items are pork-based. Some beef bacon or beef sausage would have been great.

Overall we still enjoyed this trip. My daughter had a blast. Now she is a crusin' diva!

1CruiseDreamer's Tips

Nassau, Bahamas - We have been to this port on a couple of other cruises. We noticed that there was not as many stores/shops in the marketplace as before. This was disappointing. We greatly enjoyed our excursion to Balmoral Beach. If this is ever a port on a future cruise we hope this excursion is still offered.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) - It is private. It was fabulous that only the passengers from our ship were on the island. We loved the powder sand, the crystal blue waters, and the buffet on the beach. If there were a way to throw in some free alcohol drinks, this would be a perfect stop!!!
Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida - This port does not have a marketplace in the terminal. It is not like when you travel to other ports. We had to show id (each of us in the taxi), in order to enter the yards before we even got to the terminal. That was a first for us. We did not purchase an excursion for this port.
Amber Cove (Puerto Plata), Dominican Republic - We enjoyed this port immensely. The beach excursion we took was to a resort which was great, but we did not have even close to the advertised time to enjoy our stay at the resort. Activities and food were included, but there was not sufficient time to enjoy. Plus something needs to be done about the constant barrage of locals wanting vacationers to buy their goods and services. This greatly interrupted our limited time on the beach.
Grand Turk Island - We did not go on an excursion here this cruise. We have been to this port before and again noticed that many shops were gone that had been there just last year.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - Learn the ship's layout as soon as you can. It really is not that confusing for navigating around this ship.
