Very disappointed

Sail Date: September 27, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

There were only 4 ports for this cruise, so when we didn't make it into Halifax it was very disappointing, especially since 4 other ships made it into that port ahead of us. We immediately set sail for our next port and spent the entire day at sea, yet we only arrived 2 hours early at the last port? The weather there was far worse, but we made it in without any problems. We were also 2 hours late for our first port in Boston. That meant we were in rush hour traffic, which meant the drive was twice as long. The only reason we got to see the museum was due to the museum remaining open late to accommodate our 2 buses. We then got to see the historic district in the dark.


Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
The destinations that we got to were great, but Carnival's method of everyone going off the ship at the same time was very disorganized. Instead of a dedicated gangway for groups, you had a mess.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Food was absolutely tasteless.
New York, New York
Boston, Massachusetts
Arrived late and it drastically affected what we could see and do on our activity.
Portland, Maine
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Never got to see Halifax. That port was the main purpose of this cruise.
Saint John, New Brunswick


This is the second time I have been on the Splendor, but the food quality was not the same. With everything that happened, or didn't happen, on this cruise, it will be my last. If I ever cruise again it will not be with Carnival.
