Service and Weather unpredictable

Sail Date: October 17, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

While the weather can't be predicted, the service should be.  Employees on the Splendor need to be on one accord with regards to service.  From very good service to why are you bothering me is the best way to describe it.  Also, the taste of most of the food on the ship leaves a lot to be desired.  They must buy the cheapest version of everything.  Cheese, bread, ketchup, hotdogs, etc. Nervous

Won an excursion to Half Moon Cay while on cruise, but since that port got cancelled, so did the free prize.  After three employees later, we got two free drinks.  Nervous

Embarkation and Disembarkation
Luggage dimensions on Carnival website not perfectly clear. Depends on orientation of bag.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Never made it to Half Moon Cay, too windy.
Onboard Activities
They were not very good at last minute changes or backup plans.
Service and Staff
Only the room steward was excellent.
Food and Dining
Norfolk, Virginia
Nassau, Bahamas
Can you say Windy.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
50-50 chance of actually making it to the island. We didn't.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Be prepared to pay for a taxi.


No where on Carnival web site does it mention you need a picture id to return to the ship from port. I would have preferred to carry something else besides my passport on the islands.
