7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 24, 2016
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 2286
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The itinerary was just great. If you want to add to the experience, but don't want the hectic pace, take the tours of the individual islands offered by Carnival. they're about 2-3 hours long with stops for shopping and sightseeing in the best locations and you won't be exhausted when you get back. This is a beautiful, well maintained ship with an eye to details, cleanliness, and a great attitude by the staff. The food was wonderful ( cap the night off by having a hot freshly made Ruben sandwich on aft deck 9) and the entertainment abundant. We do 2 cruises a year, many of them on Carnival ships. Admittedly,some have been sadly lacking but this one is certainly not one of them by any stretch. I would recommend this trip for anyone and can't say enough good things about this beautiful ship and it's fine crew. I can honestly give this ship an easy 5 stars.

Roomy and clean with a nice view. Don't be cheap and then be disappointed, always spend the extra bucks for an oceanview.

Ship Tip

The two first run movies on deck 9 at the large screen "Dive In" theater are a nice way to cap off a relaxing evening with a ' boat drink' and a bag of popcorn. Go early, the deck chairs fill up fast.

Use Uber to get to and from the cruise terminal. (You can easily download the app on your phone ahead of time) The cabbies rip you off and will take out of town visitors who aren't familiar with the city on a "joy ride" to increase the fare which is already exorbitant..

Don't forget the sunscreen here or you'll pay dearly for the rest of your cruise.

Go to the top of the mountain and have a banana's worth the trip

So much to see and do here you'll wish you had three days. Remember it's HOT and HUMID this close to the equator drink plenty of water!

The most beautiful stop of the trip.Take the Carnival group tour to get the most out of your few hours there.
