Carnival Splendor

September 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Southern

Enjoyed the cruise overall

We just returned from an 8 day cruise aboard the Carnival Splendor. Overall, we enjoyed this cruise. However, comparing it to the Carnival Valor which we did the last two years I would have to say the Valor is superior. The evening entertainment on the Splendor doesn't come close to the entertainment on the Valor. The evening dining also left something to be desired. Service was really poor on more than one occasion. But my biggest complaint would be the seating available for the breakfast and lunch at the Lido buffet. That was a joke. You had to look hard to find a place to sit most days. The crew, however, was great. We couldn't have asked for a better cabin steward. All crew members were very friendly and went out of their way to help if you needed any assistance. Basically, we were spoiled by the Valor and the Splendor did not live up to the expectations that we had envisioned.

Carnival Valor

August 2015 - Carnival Valor to Caribbean - Western

Great, great trip

This cruise to the Western Caribbean was actually our second time aboard the Carnival Valor. We did the Southern Caribbean on the Valor a year ago. The same superb service reigned again this summer. I am so impressed at how friendly and helpful the crew is on this ship. There was always plenty of fun activities to take part in or one could do nothing but laze in the sun if they so chose to do so.  I highly recommend this ship and this cruise. My wife and I are particularly interested in the Mayan civilization so our shore excursions were directed pretty much at visiting Mayan ruins. All in all, the cruise was certainly worth it and I would recommend it to anyone. And kudos to the staff of the Carnival Valor!!!!!!
