This was my first 7... by Koukla702

Sail date: /
Ship: Carnival Splendor

This was my first 7 day cruise and the Splendor did not disappoint! Embarkation was a breeze, had faster to the fun and it really is worth gold in my opinion- will buy it on every cruise! Food was awesome in the main dining room, I couldn’t read our main waiter Manuel one day he was sweet but then another day he told me to hurry up lol but his assistant waiter Mustafa was always the bomb dot com! We only ate in the buffet once on embarkation day so I can’t really give a review on it. But the deli was great and we loved midnight pizza! My sister and I ate breakfast in the main dining room every day and of course Sea day brunch! So delicious! We loved Tea Time! Just wished I didn’t look like I just came in from the pool (cuz I did) but it was so cute and lovely! I loved all of the activities, I went in the pool once but that was fine because I enjoy laying out. I didn’t know the back part of the ship was 18 and over until I heard a crew member tell some girls they had to leave. Lee the cruise director was awesome! There was plenty to do, even golden girls trivia! Say whaat!? I came in 3rd place! Really wanted my ship on a stick but maybe next cruise! Patrick in the piano bar was fabulous! He even played Backstreet Boys! 🥰 i definitely enjoyed my 3pm naps out In the Serenity area! Took me to the 2nd to last day to get why they play wind chime and horn music etc ....it’s “serenity”! 🤪 Getting on and off the ship at the ports was a breeze too! No complaints! it seemed like there was always someone cleaning something- always! Our cabin was clean and had tons of space! My sis and I walked on the jogging track a couple times to offset all we ate and drank! 🍹 the Splendor was Splendid! Mic 🎤 drop!

Just did the 7 day... by richc33

Sail date: /
Ship: Carnival Splendor

Just did the 7 day Mexican Riviera cruise!Although we missed 1 port,we still had a blast! Glad it happened close to the port than out in the open. Lee the cruise director made it fun! The staff all around was great and friendly! After reading all these negative post, it amazes me on how many people are just pissed about life! If your car breaks down do you get pissed at yourself for not keeping the maintenance up? Do you charge yourself for missing your destination? We will continue to cruise with Carnival and reccomend it to family and friends.

Splendor was a nice ship!... by Icdavis1

Sail date: /
Ship: Carnival Splendor

Splendor was a nice ship! Everyone knows that it's dated, so the dry dock will do it some good. There was only one big drawback in my opinion, that was the smell on the first deck, from time to time there would be this overpowering smell of gas. Luckily we had tons of air freshener and we explored the ship a lot. The food at the Steakhouse was very good, having been to some of the "top steakhouses" it ranked well. Buffet food is buffet food. Tandor and the Mongolian wok was good, so was the bbq and deli. Wasn't blown away by their pizza but hey it's 24 hours. Shows were good, the only thing (could've been the shows we attended) but it felt like the same songs were being performed. Crew was exceptional (except for one waiter in the main dining room one night). Our room steward Wason was second to none, kept the ice and towels flowing lol. The casino wasn't as smoky as the cruise we have been on, and that was a big plus. The comedy shows were hilarious, every single adult show was different and fresh, the comedians weren't dicks, they were friendly off stage and funny on stage. Overall we had a great time, however we either won't get off in Mazatlan or we will do something different than what we ended up doing.

Wish I could give more... by momof2julyboys

Sail date: /
Ship: Carnival Splendor

Wish I could give more stars. Love Splendor. Love the fun squad. Love Lee as a CD. George is amazing. Connor is amazing. My husband won a contest the first night at the welcome aboard show and we had VIP entertainment cards the entire trip so that made the cruise so much more memorable. We stayed in 9199 and the room was amazing. Didn’t spend too much time in the room except to sleep but the room truly had a breathtaking view.

Fun time with family by rhislop

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

We took our kids and grandkids on this cruise. It was geared for them, lots of fun things to do. If we were going just by ourselves we would have chosen another cruise line. Carnival really caters to young adults, families with children and family reunions on a ship.

Overall the cruise was so much fun!! we truly enjoyed our first cruise together. the menu options in the main dining room were so fun to try out the adventurous items. Never ending buffets were tough on our diets but we couldn't complain!

Loved the elegant nights as well, it was fun to dress up together and take photos.

The cruise was fun, the destination was the best part. Ship is dated so look for a newer ship if possible.

Mexican Rivera by Cruiser12043675

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

Wonderful memories made for our 25th Anniversary! We had an aft balcony, laughed our abs off at the comedy shows, and ate way to much. We sailed in Cabo, shopped in Mazatlán and took a boat to a rainforest for great food and entertainment. Not one dull moment!

Transpacific cruise, once in a lifetime.. by ontariotraveler

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Transpacific

If offered again definitely think going on this itinerary. Lots of long sea days, but the ports were something you don't find on the average cruise.

Love Splendor! Already itching... by bigchze

Sail date: /
Ship: Carnival Splendor

Love Splendor! Already itching for my next cruise! Took my wife, two adult kids and a 14 year old last week on Splendor. We loved everything about it! Pros: Gusti in the dining room made the cruise! My entire family looked forward to dinner each night just because of Gusti. Thank you for making it special! Patrick and Shakira in the Piano Bar - loved the show and the service! Sumat (sorry, spelling way off) in the atrium lounge was Splended! Loved the ship, staff, ports and the new cruise terminal.

7 Night Mexican Riviera Cruise by sevenseven7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

This 7 day Mexican Riviera cruise was very nice.Although we opted for a balcony suite which gave us extra perks, everyone we spoke to enjoyed themselves no matter what travel class they chose. The entertainment and on-ship activities were good, the food didn't disappoint and the ship was clean (very important). It even had multiple hand sanitizer locations! The crew was very professional, pleasant and eager to help and that is not easy for people who spend months at sea trying to please guests.

Wonderful Brilliant Unforgettable by karengmelb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Transpacific

My cruise lived up to my expectations and more. Learnt tips and hints to use for on my next trip (packed way toooo much) But, did have a problem with Carnival taking funds from my account that were not applicable. This then had a knock effect for me in Singapore.😰😰😰
