My first and maybe my last cruise. We wanted to see the whales, that's why we went on this cruise.

The food was ok not bad but most time the food was almost cold. The food was especially for American guests. The breakfast was always the same. After 5 days I had enough from the breakfast. The dinner was mostly great but also almost cold, exepct the soups was always hot and very good.

My first cruise. So I was a little bit shocked that the rooms are so small. But it was ok after the suitecase was under the bed and all the clothing in the closet. The beds are wonderful soft and very comfortable.

Nothing special. Sometimes we felt almost boring, especially for people that do not speak english.

We made 3 excursions. They were very expensive and nothing special. We booked the whale watching tour. Unfortunately we saw some whales from far away, because our boat stayed far away from the whales. The half submarine boat tour was a joke. We saw maybe 20 fishes all the same colours and that was it. What a disappointment for this high price we payed.

The Carnival Splendor is nothing for people who cant speak english. It is not possible to understand anything whats going on. You have to speak very good english for going on this ship.

Everything was too noisy and too much people everywhere. For stressed people who need some quiet place, this is the wrong ship. I could not found a quite place until the last day, when I went to the massage on the 11st deck to the wellness place. That is the only quit place on the ship.

All the staff are very friendly and helpful.

Our neighbour (teenager) was also very loud and sometimes the teenagers on the boat cry so loud in the night that I was thinking somebody will be killed.
