Carnival Magic

August 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Magic

Very good cruise, great ship

My 8-year-old daughter really enjoyed the cruise.  The water park and adventure park were great, as was the trivia.  Really liked the ship décor and layout.  Excellent embarkation in Port Canaveral.  Took 20 minutes.

Carnival Splendor

June 2016 - 8 Night Southern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor

Carnival Splendor - June 18,2016 - 8 Night Cruise

The Splendor seemed understaffed.  The steward only wanted to do day OR night room cleaning, not both.  Dinners took a very long time.  We missed almost every early comedy show, since our 6 PM seating dinners didn't end until almost 8 PM. 

 

Our Carnival Dominican Republic excursion was completely mis-advertised. The Excursion description stated 6 hours, with difficult jungle walks.  It specifically said people with back problems. heart issues or asthma should not attend.  In reality, the excursion was 4 hours, including a two-hour bus ride, and the walk was 20 minutes each way on a path. Carnival did refund us 33% after we complained.

 

Also, other cruisers said that La Romana, Dominican Republic, was dangerous.  Shop owners had shotguns, and cruisers were constantly accosted by locals trying to sell them stuff.  Even on open-air buses, the locals would pull up on bikes and try to get you to buy something.  Very rude and intrusive.  This has never happened on any other island I've been on.

 

Aruba, Curacao and Turks and Caicos were excellent.

 

The layout of the Splendor is great for walkers, and there is a moving canopy that can close over the Lido deck.

AlexBo's Tips

Bridgetown, Barbados - Did a catamaran sail (Tiami) through Carnival. Have done it before, always a good time.
Castries, St. Lucia - Did the zip lining excursion near the Pitons through a non-Carnival excursion provider. A lot of fun, snorkeled afterwards. Returned to the ship with 10 minutes to spare. A little tight time-wise for me, but we made it back.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Did a small boat island/snorkeling excursion, not affiliated with Carnival. Great time, but it's very bumpy on the Atlantic Ocean portion of the trip. Be aware.
Carnival Fascination Carnival Fascination - If you want a quiet cruise, don't sail in the summer. Lots of kids running around.
Carnival Pride Carnival Pride - There are quite a few obstructed view cabins on this ship. Book through a Travel Agent.
