Carnival Splendor

September 2015 - 7 Night Canada & New England (New York Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor

Great sites along the East Coast of USA

We had a great time on this cruise.  Older passengers due to area of travel and timing (school being in session) which was a nice change of pace.  Lovely sites and ports of call.  My only complaint would be that the dock area to get onto and off of the ship didn't run smoothly, there was a lot of confusion about where to go and the people working in that terminal area (between the buses and the ship boarding/disembarking) were not at all friendly.

sallynicewander's Tips

Halifax, Nova Scotia - Section in the Titanic museum is very small for all the hype that they do about same.
New York, New York - Our flight left late on the way home...it would have been good to do an excursion in this port!
Portland, Maine - It's all uphill from the port. My husband struggled with that a bit, but it's very pretty!
Saint John, New Brunswick - seemed a bit run down at this port. Next time I would do an excursion that takes me away from the port a bit further.
Carnival Splendor Carnival Splendor - Lots of pool deck chairs and tables in pool area! No need to try to reserve, there always seemed to be plenty.
Key West, Florida - We did the trolley tour and it was very interesting. Shopping was great.
Nassau, Bahamas - We wandered and shopped at this stop. People were very friendly and it feels "safe".
Miami, Florida - We did the Hop on Hop off Excursion at the end of the cruise...it was fun...but don't pack your sunscreen in your luggage! Keep it out to use that day
Majesty of the Seas Majesty of the Seas - There is a whole other level for seating at the cafe, if the tables are full below, try going up the stairs.
Galveston, Texas - We did the bus excursion and then it took us to the airport. Was a nice way to end the vacation.
Falmouth, Jamaica - We went out into the city. I felt very overwhelmed by the people and seemed very dingy. Sorry we didn't just book the waterfall climb there like we had talked about initially.
Cozumel, Mexico - Beautiful weather and good balance with excursion in the morning and then shopping in the afternoon.
Navigator of the Seas Navigator of the Seas - you need to get there very early if you are going to do any of the trivia activities, lounge they hold that in is pretty small and those are packed!
