7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 27, 2015
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6251
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Splendor is a beautiful ship and meticulously maintained.  All the decks, restaurants, rest rooms, gym, common areas ... everything was spotless and always being cleaned by the pleasant crew members.  This is not an Ad for Carnival, just the truth.  Carnivals logistics and customer service was outstanding. The only issue was the wi-fi service aboard. It took us a couple of days to realize that the signal was best in the center common areas of the ship, and not too good in the room.  The New Years celebration was really nice, and we finished in the Red Carpet lounge till 2:30am.  My wife and I truly enjoyed the voyage and are reserving this ship again for next new year!

Impeccably maintained! Kudos for Carnival!

Cabin / Stateroom

Take a three outlet connector and a multiple outlet power strip to connect chargers and other electronic gadgets. Only one outlet in cabin. We loved the Balcony Stateroom. Very roomy, three closets, plenty of drawers, and you can slide your bags under the bed to reduce clutter.

Ship Tip

We were on board for 7 days and still missed some areas in the aft area. It is a large ship and it is fun to explore. Liquor is cheaper in Cozumel than on board.

Very friendly people. We did the buggy island tour excursion and loved it.

Carnival's private beach is not too good, many shells and rocks in sand. Port shops have some nice trinkets and clothes.

Carnivals private beach is great, but forget about snorkeling there. I only saw one large Angel Fish. Next time we will take an excursion to the west end where the nice beaches and snorkeling can be found.

The port shops are a large tourist trap area, but nice trinkets and jewelry is available, as well as some nice eating joints. We were not interested in the ruins excursions, but they may be nice for those who like it.
