Carnival Splendor

3.6 out of 5

Overview

Carnival Splendor first debuted in 2008, and is the only ship in Carnival Cruise Line’s Splendor class. The vessel is a large ship carrying up to 3,006 passengers, and sails to a variety of destinations including Alaska, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Mexico, and even the Panama Canal.

Passengers can catch some rays in the Serenity adults-only area, enjoy a musical production show, attend a cooking demonstration, or catch the crook during CLUE: The Murder Mystery game. Barbecue fans will love the new Ol’ Fashioned BBQ venue onboard Carnival Splendor, serving up smoked beef, pork butt, and grilled chicken with sides like potato salad, baked beans, and mac and cheese. There’s also a burrito bar, Tandoor Indian food, the steakhouse, Mongolian Wok, and the traditional buffet and main dining room.

Kids love the onboard Seuss at Sea program where they can meet The Cat in the Hat and other Dr. Seuss characters, attend a Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast, and make Seuss-themed crafts. A pop-up Build-A-Bear Workshop, mini golf, the Twister Waterslide, and kids parties round out the children's offerings on board Splendor and ensure your little ones will never experience a dull moment.

This was a great trip. Relaxing, beautiful weather and many new memories. This was our first to all of the ports. Hope to do it again sooner than later.

Check out the Taste Bar. Great for a quick little bite while walking through the ship, without having to go to the buffet.

Don't sign up for the spa / thermal suite. Small pool, small locker rooms. Much better on NCL

To travel from aft to fwd the easiest way I found was to drop to 2 deck walk the length of the hall and return to the deck you want , some decks have no thru acess , also good way to avoid the smoky casino area .
