Carnival Splendor

December 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean

Splendor loses its Splendor

My wife and I were on the new year's cruise for 2015-2016 and the Splendor was absolutely outstanding.  Such was so, that we immediately booked for the 2016-2017 new year's cruise we just came back from.

 

Well... Sorry Carnival, something happened to the Splendor in that one year time frame.  I understand that the crews rotate, but the customer service with this crew was at best mediocre... not bad, but not excellent like last year.  The folks at the front desk level 3 were dry, not nice, and seemed to either not like their job, or felt they were above giving great customer service.  The buffet was mediocre.  We were seated next to the kitchen twice in the Black Pearl level 3 restaurant twice until we had to complain.  The waitresses do not have a clue about the timing of the meals, bringing coffee before desert and while finishing our wine. The food was cold, with the explanation from the head waiter that those slower moving items are served up in the kitchen and left there until someone take them to a table, getting cold.

 

Once I got back, I had to fight with Carnival, through , to cancel next year's Splendor cruise over to the new Carnival Vista, and got penalized $100. Carnival... wake up! The new player in Miami, MSC Cruises is going to eat your lunch if you keep this up.

MSC Divina

September 2016 - MSC Divina to Caribbean - Eastern

MSC 7 night Caribbean Cruise

Very crowded, quality of buffet neither good nor bad... so-so. Great service in formal dining rooms. Ship very clean and well maintained. Too short of time in ports.

Carnival Splendor

December 2015 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Western

Carnival Splendor | Dec 27, 2015 | 7 Night Western Caribbean New Years Cruise

The Splendor is a beautiful ship and meticulously maintained.  All the decks, restaurants, rest rooms, gym, common areas ... everything was spotless and always being cleaned by the pleasant crew members.  This is not an Ad for Carnival, just the truth.  Carnivals logistics and customer service was outstanding. The only issue was the wi-fi service aboard. It took us a couple of days to realize that the signal was best in the center common areas of the ship, and not too good in the room.  The New Years celebration was really nice, and we finished in the Red Carpet lounge till 2:30am.  My wife and I truly enjoyed the voyage and are reserving this ship again for next new year!

PeterRojas's Tips

MSC Divina MSC Divina - Grab a deck chair quickly if ship is full, especially on sea navigation days.
Belize City, Belize - Carnival's private beach is not too good, many shells and rocks in sand. Port shops have some nice trinkets and clothes.
Cozumel, Mexico - Very friendly people. We did the buggy island tour excursion and loved it.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - The port shops are a large tourist trap area, but nice trinkets and jewelry is available, as well as some nice eating joints. We were not interested in the ruins excursions, but they may be nice for those who like it.
Mahogany Bay, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - Carnivals private beach is great, but forget about snorkeling there. I only saw one large Angel Fish. Next time we will take an excursion to the west end where the nice beaches and snorkeling can be found.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - We were on board for 7 days and still missed some areas in the aft area. It is a large ship and it is fun to explore. Liquor is cheaper in Cozumel than on board.
