Sail Date: October 26, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

I DID NOT ENJOY THIS CRUISE AS MUCH AS I DID ON CARNIVAL CRUISE I TOOK AROUND THE SAME TIME LAST YEAR.  THIS SHIP DID NOT HAVE AS MANY ACTIVITIES AND I DID NOT LIKE THAT RESERVATIONS HAD TO BE MADE FOR THE "FEW" SHOWS THAT WHERE OFFERED.  THE STAFF WAS GREAT AND ATTENTIVE.  I WAS EXPECTING BATHROBES IN THE ROOM DURING MY STAY AND THAT WAS NOT OFFERED.  SINCE I LEFT FROM NY IN OCTOBER, SEVERAL DAYS WERE SPENT AT SEA SO HAVING MORE ACTIVITIES WOULD HAVE BEEN A PLUS, I COULD NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE DECK AREA WHEN WE FIRST LEFT NYC BECAUSE OF THE COLD WEATHER AND THIS SHIP HAS NO TOP COVER AS CARNIVAL DOES.  ALSO DURING THE CAPTAIN'S NIGHT THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH PHOTOGRAPHERS, WHEN I FOUND ONE THERE WAS A LONG LINE.  ON CARNIVAL THERE WAS MUCH MORE TO DO AND ATTENDING THE EVENTS WAS MUCH EASIER.  I LIKED THAT CARNIVAL (SPLENDOR) HAS THE COVER ON THE DECK DURING SAILING IN THE COLD OR BAD WEATHER. ALSO THE ANNOUNCEMENTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO BE HEARD IN THE ROOM. AND IT WOULD BE  GREAT IF THE APP OFFERED TO DOWNLOAD ON YOUR PHONE WOULD ALERT YOU OF PENDING RESERVATIONS.  I ALSO DID NOT LIKE THAT I COULD NOT GET A REFUND FROM THE TRADEWINDS STORE ON CARNIVAL I WAS ABLE TO GET A FULL REFUND ON MY RETURNED  PURCHASE.  I DID HOWEVER, LIKE THAT LUNCH WAS PROVIDED ON THE PRIVATE ISLAND IN THE BAHAMAS AND THE EASE OF DINING IN THE MAIN DINING ROOMS. I WOULD HAVE LIKE MORE SPECIALS AT THE SPA WHILE AT SEA, I THOUGHT THE PRICES WHERE EXTREMELY HIGH COMPARED TO THE CARNIVAL SPLENDOR. WHILE ON THE CARNIVAL CRUISE I LOST TRACK OF ONE DAY TO THE NEXT ON THE BREAKAWAY I WAS BORED AND THE DAYS SEEMED TO DRAG. I WILL NOT  BE TAKING THIS CRUISE LINE AGAIN

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
IT WAS NOT MUCH OF A VARIETY THE SAME STUFF EVERY DAY, LOADS OF IT
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
STAFF WAS GREAT AND MADE ME FEEL WELCOME
Entertainment
THERE WAS NONE...OR NOT ENOUGH TWO SHOWS FOR SEVEN DAYS
Onboard Activities
NOT ENOUGH TO DO FOR OLDER PERSONS
Destinations and Excursions
GREAT, BUT YOU HAD TO SPEND MONEY TO GET TO BEACHES AS THE SHIP DOCKS MILES AWAY FROM THEM
Port Canaveral, Florida
NOT REALLY A LOT TO DO, BUT ENJOYED THE BEACH AFTER I SPENT $13 TO GET THERE
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
REALLY ENJOYED THE BEACH AND ADDED TOUCH OF LUNCH
Nassau, Bahamas
GOT OFF SHIP AND TURNED BACK AROUND MORE MONEY TO SPEND TO GET TO BEACH OR GET TO ATLANTIS
