Our Cruise

Sail Date: March 27, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was very nice considering that over the eight days we spent 6 on the ship. Unfortunately the programs were set up for children OR older people. We are very active with twin 16 year olds and none of the programs interested us. Bingo ~ really? Trivia ~ really? Even our girls found nothing interesting in the Club O/2. So, we spent 6 days 2 of which were sunny either napping or reading or eating (which we didn't need to do). Overall...boring trip. The best time was in the two ports of call. Too bad we only had those two...again a let down.

Pros: The two ports we visited

Cons: The ship travel

Recommends Carnival Splendor? No.
