Great Cruise

Sail Date: August 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

We were very impressed with Carnival Splendor. It is a pretty ship with the most freindly employees I have ever met on a cruise. And we have cruised a lot! I really enjoyed the Splendor pool deck with the large screen and of course the shopping on the ship.

Pros: Friendly employees

Cons: Numerous persistent waiters pushing alcohol

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Service and Staff
We have cruised a lot and never once did we have a cruise like this one where every employee we met or came into contact with were so friendly. Always helpful and in good moods. Always smiling and acknowledging us. Great staff. Best cruise staff I have ever cruised with
Ship Quality
The Splendor is a large ship with a lot of places to explore. Easy to navigate around. The ship is kept very clean even the public restrooms.
Food and Dining
We were impressed with the Golden Pearl dining room. We ate dinner there every night except one which we ate in port. The food was excellent. I ordered whatever our head waiter suggested and enjoyed every bite!! The service was outstanding. We looked forward to seeing the head waiter and assistant every evening. They treated us like family.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room, very spacious, nice room. 3 closets!!! Wow we had plenty of space for our clothes and luggage to store. The balcony door opened so we could have one large balcony our friends had the room next door so that made it easier for us to visit on the balcony. Nice rooms, clean and spacious.
I am not into the Vegas style shows, this cruise just so happend to have the band's platform broken so no Vegas style shows YEAH, Carnival flew in a comedian and also a hyponist which we thought were outstanding. We went to all of their shows the family ones and the R rated ones. We laughed so hard we cried. The entertainment was excellent. Loved it.
