7 Night Canada & New England (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 13, 2015
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

My wife and I booked a New England and Canada cruise on Carnival Splendor, after enjoying a Caribbean experience on Carnival Pride. We were attracted by the relatively low price as well as the itinerary: New York to Boston; Portland, ME; Halifax, Nova Scotia; and St. John, New Brunswick; back to New York. The ship itself is large and negotiates the water easily- a smooth ride. Our suite, OS class, was very good, and cabin stewards are great. But we found food dismal in the Black Pearl restaurant (same menu as the other restaurant, just open seating). The buffet areas on Lido deck are very crowded and noisy. We did not try the steak house (Pinnacle) based on a bad experience in the steak house on Pride.
