Room Type: Balcony

Went on my honeymoon last year. It was a great experience. The Splendor had it all. Night clubs, casinos, and a sports room. At first, I was not really into the idea of a cruise, but after my trip, I am seriously considering another trip this coming year.

Pros: I loved the stops in Mexico, 24hrs food service, great casino floor, great swiming pools, and great customer service.

Cons: automatic gratuity, they charge you for soda's as well, no real activities for age group of 21-35 yrs, and the most important of all cabo stay was way too short

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Ship Quality
The Splendor was an amazing ship. This ship was huge compare to some of the cruise ship we saw out in the sea that week.
Service and Staff
The crew were very friendly as well as helpful.
In my opinion. There wasn't really any good activities for age group of 21-35yrs old. They were plenty for teenagers and older adults. I would like to see some improvement in that department.
Cabin / Stateroom
We got a room with a balcony and it was the best decision I made. I actually saw some of the other rooms and it was very small compare to my room.
Food and Dining
24hr pizza can beat that. Also dinner was great as well.
