6 Night Bahamas (Norfolk Roundtrip)

One of the great things about Carnival cruises is that the sea days and the experiences on-board are a BIG part of the fun, so missing a port just allows more time to take advantage of what this ship had to offer. This was a 6 day cruise to the Bahamas, which included stops at Nassau, Freeport, and, our favorite port, Half Moon Cay. Unfortunately, mother nature intervened and 40 knot winds and 6 foot seas prevented us from tendering to the private island. The captain steered us away from the harsh weather and, by noon, we had sunshine and smooth(er) sailing headed to the next port. The Cruise Director, Kevin, and his great staff re-tooled the on-board activities for the day and lots of fun was there to be had. The Splendor is a great ship and we will sail on her again.

The cabin was well designed and was very roomy.

Ship Tip

Check out the Rotisserie area on the upper level of the Lido buffet. It is a hidden treasure...and offers an additional food venue with PLENTY of seating.

Cruising in hurricane season is always a crap shoot. We missed this port this time, but have been there 3 times and have another scheduled soon. Best beach EVER!
