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.

Would love to do this same itinerary on this same ship again before it dry docks in Australia.

Had a good time overall. Disappointed in the quality of entertainment, food and cost of pretty much everything. Excursions were way too expensive for what you get

First time Cruise - Amazing experience by jacquesmarcotte

Once again, big kudos to the Staff, especially the bartenders, Luther and Theresa. The Art Gallery was a great time and big thanks to Didi, Loren, and Aga. I am now an art collector. LOL I did not find a list of the onboard activities until we were onboard. It would have been nice to have the full schedule a few weeks prior to the cruise. Maybe I missed it somehow. Lastly, as this was my first cruise (with the exception of the high speed turn on the way back to Cabo, let's not say Titanic) the cruise was amazing. We watched the sunrise our first day out, and slept part of the night on the deck on the way back. We made new friends and the time I spent with my girlfriend was extremely special. The adult only areas allowed us some quiet romantic time that I will cherish.

Loved the ports I visited in Hawaii by CrusingTom

Embarkation was confusion and lines, some nice shows and comedians to watch on the way to Hawaii, Great visits to beautiful islands at each of our port of calls in Hawaii, interesting experience in Mexico, and the drudgery of disembarkation.

Not the right time of year to cruise to Hawaii - too cold! by clhonsberger

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Pacific in January is cold and choppy. If you want to go to Hawaii in January - Fly!. The food on board is not very good. We didn't starve but what we did have was very limiting.

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

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

Apr 12, 2013

Bring a tray of cups of water and lemonade to your room so you don't have to pay for bottled water
