Carnival Splendor ReviewsView Cruise Deals
Want to thank Iglu for organising all our flights, stay over in Las Vegas and the cruise to Mexico. There was not one downside. A real great experience would recommend any day. Thank you very much
Ship needs updating but excellent food and a huge number of different places to eat all offering different types of food.
My husband and I have just got back from our holiday, 2days in new york with a hotel stay was really good we found a lovely cafe 57th street Morning star then a week on the Carnival splendor to New England it was fantastic, everyone was so nice on the ship ,nothing was to much trouble, we were independent travellers so any questions were answered, again when we disembarked and needed help to get taxis no problem, we really can't fault anthing, hopefully it won't be long for our next cruise
The decor is very pink. The staff are excellent looking after you with a 5* service. Lots of food choices, stir fry was the best. Afternoon tea was also much better than expected. Entertainment very professional. The only things I will say was a disappointment was the gluten free bread, the worst I have been offered in 20 years, it was just terrible. Also the tea brand is not very nice, please go back to Lipton! Lastly no kettle in your room, so room service would deliver hot drinks. The hot water had a coffee flavour so tea always tasted odd.
Have just returned from a 7day cruise to the Bahamas. Unfortunately you have to spend 4-day transatlantic to indulge in the three day stops. The weather was cold which ensured you were trapped inside which can only be described as a holiday camp with no doors. The ship was overrun with kids running riot and unsupervised. There was no escaping them or the unpleasantly cold air conditioning unless you retreated to your cabin. The buffet dining area was manic, with unimaginative, poor quality and cold food repeated at all stations. You then spent 15 minutes trying to find a table. It was desperately understaffed and no sight of any officers to supervise any kind of organisation or the remote enforcement of hygiene. There were virtually no drink waiting staff day or night. The formal dining area was equally abysmal, saved by the courteous staff, trying to serve the "shorts wearing, cap wielding clientele". Saving grace - the cabin was clean.
I was on the inagural cruise of this ship. It's very large and has everything on board. The food is excepional with everything you can eat 24hrs per day
