I am writing this review, as I have had invaluable advise and help on CC. We are 3 Kiwi's who were on our first trip to Europe, we had already been travelling overland for 2.5 weeks when we boarded Splendor. Training out from Termini was easy. As long as you have a bag on wheels, and are up for a bit of a walk (the platform is just about at the end number 28) the cost is only 4.50euro and ...

This was our second Carnival Cruise and one of more than a dozen we have taken in recent years. We've found that each ship and cruise has its pro's and con's related to dEcor, destinations and operation. That held true with the Splendor. We were pleased that our pre-cruise concerns regarding 'crowd control' and access on a 3,000-passenger ship the equivalent to a multi-storied floating hotel ...

Embarkation was faster than a speeding bullet. It does help getting to port early before the buses coming from the airport. Stayed in Rome for a few days prior to sailing and shared a shuttle with the couple we were travelling with. Made life easy instead of carrying bags in the Termini Stazione in Roma and then in Civitavecchia. 140 euro plus tip for 4 people was well worth it and also used ...

Background: 4th cruise, 3rd on Carnival. Flew into Venice. We took the ACTV bus to the main Plaza Roma; from there we walked to our hotel that was near the train station, there is a new bridge that makes the walk short. Hotel Abbazia was very pleasant room, nice service at the front desk and a lovely European breakfast. ($470.00 for 2 nights). We choose this hotel due to departing by train ...

Having cruised before but never with Carnival, we had high expectations of the cruiseline and were completely let down. We were travelling with our toddler son from half way round the world and chose this cruiseline because of the reputation of 'family friendly' and childcare facilities onboard. Once there, we discovered there were only a dozen or so children on board and the average age ...

Hi, Just got off the Splendor in Rome yesterday. Had a great cruise with 15 of our friends. (By the way, for those people who may chose to take a little drink onboard, they had no problem with this. Some people took bags full of beer, wine, all types of alcohol made it through with no problem even at the ports of call) This is a great ship. I loved the movie nights in the pool area that ...

Traveled with my husband and child. The ship decor was to busy and pink. Not elegant, we did not feel we were in a GRAND ship or a new one TOO BUSY. The SHIP not spotless everywhere. I don't know if anyone else noticed but the cleaning crew needed to pay attention also to the dusting in the cabin and shelves. Also there was dust and dirt near the windows at the seating area at the Lido and ...

We enjoy cruising Europe because of the convenience and would say that while we had a good vacation, Carnival wouldn't be at the top of my list again if price and itinerary are equal to another line (ie Celebrity or Princess). Service was good, food quality, okay. THE UPSIDE: Ship was exceptionally clean pretty much everywhere, although tables on the Lido deck frequently were unwiped before ...

this was the second cruise i have been with carnival and my 3rd cruise overall and i was completely impressed by it. we were completely let down before we even embarked. as 2 families we asked for adjoining rooms, which we were refused. we then asked for one of the rooms to be a triple or at least large enough to house 2 adults with 2 babies. we specifically asked for a double with enough space ...

We thought our Carnival Splendor vacation was awesome! The food was good, the shows were great, our cabin was spacious, the staff was perfect. We could not have asked for a better cruise. The Carnival Splendor decor is not as bad as some people think. Yes, its very pink but I liked it alot. The pictures along the cabin hallways were cute. Like old fashioned pictures from the 50's or something. We ...
