Carnival Splendor 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.

A great experience! by Aaross

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

It was a great experience to explore all three places in one week. However you need to make sure you pre plan excursions before you go.

Fun Trip by sullivin1

The cruise was fun, the destination was the best part. Ship is dated so look for a newer ship if possible.

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

Jan 25, 2015

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
