Carnival Splendor

April 2016 - 7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor

Very nice cruise

The itinerary was just great. If you want to add to the experience, but don't want the hectic pace, take the tours of the individual islands offered by Carnival. they're about 2-3 hours long with stops for shopping and sightseeing in the best locations and you won't be exhausted when you get back. This is a beautiful, well maintained ship with an eye to details, cleanliness, and a great attitude by the staff. The food was wonderful ( cap the night off by having a hot freshly made Ruben sandwich on aft deck 9) and the entertainment abundant. We do 2 cruises a year, many of them on Carnival ships. Admittedly,some have been sadly lacking but this one is certainly not one of them by any stretch. I would recommend this trip for anyone and can't say enough good things about this beautiful ship and it's fine crew. I can honestly give this ship an easy 5 stars.

Cruise Tips

Bridgetown, Barbados

Aggressive street vendors make you run a gauntlet. We got in on a Sunday so everything was closed.The tour was uninteresting.

Philipsburg, St. Maarten

Went to Curacao instead because of the hurricane. Was a delightful port with shady courtyard cafes, great shopping and wonderful people. This port should be a regular on the itenary

Castries, St. Lucia

A fun port. Take the side trip to the small fishing villages and have a drink at the top of the hill run by a delightful lady who will dance to the Caribbean music with you

St. John's, Antigua

The people are cautiously friendly but this is a typical third world port. Walk down the sidewalks carefully, there are open sewers, broken or missing chunks of the extremely narrow sidewalks that disappear completely the further you get from the dock

Find another cruise that gives you more "bang for your buck". This ship seems geared mostly for first time cruisers and geriatrics who have had no experience with other cruise ships and no expectations of quality. I rate this particular cruise below most Carnival cruises I've taken (and I've taken many)

San Juan, Puerto Rico

So much to see and do here you'll wish you had three days. Remember it's HOT and HUMID this close to the equator drink plenty of water!

Miami, Florida

Use Uber to get to and from the cruise terminal. (You can easily download the app on your phone ahead of time) The cabbies rip you off and will take out of town visitors who aren't familiar with the city on a "joy ride" to increase the fare which is already exorbitant..

The two first run movies on deck 9 at the large screen "Dive In" theater are a nice way to cap off a relaxing evening with a ' boat drink' and a bag of popcorn. Go early, the deck chairs fill up fast.
