A Splendid Vacation Aboard the Carnival Splendor by Santoemma

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship's staff and crew were wonderful. Mostly foreigners, but all spoke plenty of English. The onboard dining was excellent. We recommend a dinner at the Pinnacle, it's worth the extra $35 / person, just once, at least. This was our first cruise and it was an overall positive experience. We didn't like the photography scam, nor the constant push to buy jewelry or watches which really aren't priced to sell. However, the overall experience was great.

Its getting worse, the sauna and steam rooms are almost nonexistent for non-spa users. by samin1733

Go back to the way it was before, not just catering for the super rich people. Also no double occupancy charge for single person.

My wife and I were extremely burnt out and were looking forward to the "disconnect" we needed a lot of rest and effortlessness and boy did we get it. Thank you carnival. by abart63

Carnival has really stepped up their game. From the rapid embarkation, fantastic quality of food at the main dining room, much improved debarkation and technology improvements (Sail and sign Card) this was our favorite cruise ever.

Carnival Splendor Cruise - 2018 by jaredray25

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have cruised several times before and upon boarding the Splendor we realized we needed to lower our expectations if we were going to have a good week. The maintenance of the ship is very poor, rust is everywhere. The decor is worn out pink and black. The entertainment was poor (talented performers) but our first night of entertainment so many of the passengers actually got up a left before it was over. Very few on board activities, especially if you don't drink alcohol or want to gamble. Guest Services was excellent and very helpful. Rooms were cleaned well and regularly.

Fun, fun, fun! Lee the cruise director was phenomenal! I looked forward to watching what ever activity he had going. by brnadebt

The ship is a bit outdated, but it was spotless! The crew on board was fabulous, very courteous and helpful. We had a balcony room, and loved it. Every morning we had our coffee and fresh fruit out there. The food was top notch, we enjoyed ordering room service for breakfast every day.

Absolutely LOVED this itinerary. Would do it again in a heartbeat. by JoRoma

Verified Review

Used ShipMate.com which was a wonderful app. to find out more about local beaches and things to do. Did love the Land and Sea excursion for Cabo. The food was good, staff was excellent, room was comfortable and seas were calm. Was happy that this cruise turned out much better than anticipated.

Fantastic Mexican cruise by oldcruiser

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We have been cruising this particular cruise 7 times, and enjoy it so much. The service throughout the ship is outstanding, with so many things to do. We seem to be always busy throughout the ship, but enjoy our balcony very much, too. We plan to go on the same cruise again next year.

Bucket list cruise by erps

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ocean was surprisingly smooth as compared to sometimes in the Caribbean except for Kona which was a tender port. The seas were too rough to go ashore so we had to skip that port. This was the friendliest staff we have ever had. Lee Mason, the cruise director was great! Even the captain made appearances around the ship quite often. It was great to be a part of the record breaking donation that was raised for St. Jude's Children's hospital. $40,000 will be hard to beat.

We had a fantastic time! It was our first ever cruise that my husband gave to me as an anniversary gift and we can't wait to book another. by DebbieandHomer

The biggest disappointment was the internet or should I say the lack there of. I do understand that it is something completely of out of Carnival's control and we were given a refund.

When we started getting hurricane Sergio updates I was concerned about rough waters. It ended up being very smooth. The food was great. Comedy shows were great.

Nice Mexican Cruise by jkellyc

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Boarding was easy. The swimming pools were crowded. The food was excellent. The engine was noisy at night. The entertainment was good, except for the final comedy show. (The language was horrible and it was not funny). The band that performed every night on the 3rd floor stage was excellent. Getting off the ship was very easy. My wife and I were told that we would each get a $50 credit on our bill and this didn't happen. It was a nice cruise overall.
