6 Night Bahamas (Norfolk Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 17, 2015
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 6227
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

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

Ship Tip

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.

50-50 chance of actually making it to the island. We didn't.
