Carnival Splendor cruises for 2020-2021


Carnival Cruise Line homebases one of its largest ships in Sydney. To accommodate strong bookings, especially from families, Carnival Splendor increased its capacity from 3012 (double occupancy) to 3900 (adding more 3rd and 4th bunks) during its 2019 refurbishment in Singapore. Popular Carnival Funship 2.0 features were added: the Green Thunder Waterslide and Waterpark, Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina and BlueIguana Tequila Bar. From Sydney Carnival Splendor sails to the South Pacific on seven to 11 night voyages, and makes short trips to Queensland and Tasmania over three and four nights. In February 2022 there is a round trip of 12 nights to New Zealand. In March and May 10-night cruises visit the Great Barrier Reef – see tropical North Queensland in Cairns, perhaps take a side trip to the Outer Reef at Port Douglas, and circle Willis Island as an excuse to buy duty-free goods.

Life aboard Carnival Splendor
Carnival Cruise Line homebases one of its largest ships in Sydney. To accommodate strong bookings, especially from families, Carnival Splendor increased its capacity from 3012 (double occupancy) to 3900 (adding more 3rd and 4th bunks) during its 2019 refurbishment in Singapore. Popular Carnival Funship 2.0 features were added: the Green Thunder Waterslide and Waterpark, Guy’s Burger Joint, BlueIguana Cantina and BlueIguana Tequila Bar. From Sydney Carnival Splendor sails to the South Pacific on seven to 11 night voyages, and makes short trips to Queensland and Tasmania over three and four nights. In February 2022 there is a round trip of 12 nights to New Zealand. In March and May 10-night cruises visit the Great Barrier Reef – see tropical North Queensland in Cairns, perhaps take a side trip to the Outer Reef at Port Douglas, and circle Willis Island as an excuse to buy duty-free goods.

Carnival Splendor entered service in 2008, originally designed as a Costa Concordia class ship. Some features of the vessel include four pools, seven whirlpools, and a sports deck with arena-style seating. Other amenities include multiple bars, nightclub, casino, full internet connectivity, and large outdoor LED screen overlooking the main pool area. Carnival Splendor's biggest strength is its appeal to a wide variety of travellers, from families and groups to couples. The ship receives good customer ratings for its entertainment, spa and fitness facility, and provisions for various children age-group activities. The ship gives a feeling of spaciousness, with its “city at sea” atmosphere.

Accommodation
The cabin categories include interior staterooms, ocean view (portholes, picture window, and forward-looking floor-to-ceiling window), balcony (four grades, up to an aft wrap-around balcony), and suites (three grades). Each of these categories has a “Cloud 9 Spa” variation, with complimentary spa access. Eighty percent of the cabins are outside; 80 percent of those staterooms have private balconies. Each cabin has a gift amenity basket in its bathroom. All staterooms include flat-screen TVs, safe, mini-bar, beach towels, hair dryer, bathrobes to wear during your cruise, and Carnival Comfort Bed with plush mattresses, good quality duvets, linens and pillows. Standard cabins are a good size. Most with twin beds can be converted to king-size bed. Good design and soft lighting add to a feeling of spaciousness in interior staterooms.

The Junior, Grand, and Ocean Suites have a large lounge and sleeping area, large bathroom with twin wash basins, and whirlpool bathtub. The best suites and cabins are those on the aft-facing decks. Suites qualify for priority check-in at port. Some cabins can accommodate a third and fourth person, and most cabin categories are fitted with inter-connecting doors to suit families. There are no single cabins, and 25 wheelchair-accessible cabins. A room service menu is available 24-hours, for a small charge.

Food and Dining
There are two principal dining rooms – Black Pearl and Gold Pearl – with a choice of fixed-time dining at two seatings, or flexible “Your Time Dining”. Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating. Late morning Brunch is served along with a comedy presentation. Kids have their own menu. The Lido Restaurant is the expansive two-level poolside eatery, offering casual alternatives for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also on the pool deck is a pizza station, a deli, and the Mongolian Wok for Asian food.

The Nouveau Restaurant (dinner, pay extra) specialising in steaks and seafood is a superb fine-dining experience not to be missed. The Chef’s Table, reserved for 12, is a special dining experience that includes a galley tour. The other specialty restaurants are Bonsai Sushi, Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse, and Masala Tiger. On the promenade deck a premium coffee bar serves specialty coffees and sweets (there's a charge). There are numerous coffee, iced tea and lemonade stations as well as self-serve ice cream and frozen yoghurt machines. The ship offers 24-hour room service (pay), ranging from basic continental-style breakfast fare to a variety of sandwiches and desserts.

Entertainment
There is something for everyone. The Spectacular Show Lounge spanning three decks presents large production shows and cabaret acts backed by a live show band. It has a revolving stage, hydraulic orchestra pit, and excellent sound. Seaside Theatre’s giant screen over the main pool shows sports events, music videos and films. Night is the time for late buffet snacks, R-rated comedy and Red Carpet Dance Club. There’s the Grand Piano Bar, and jazz bar for afternoon tea and before dinner drinks. These are just a few of the 22 bars and lounges splashed with kaleidoscopic colours.

Daytime activities include the customary art auctions, karaoke, "game show mania," ballroom dancing, comedians, and bingo. Adults have the large action-packed Royal Flush Casino and their adults-only Serenity Retreat. Take an aerobics class, work out in the gym, refresh with a beauty treatment and massage. Access to Cloud 9 Spa with its Thalasso therapy pool, treatment rooms and tea house is limited to Spa staterooms or by day paid pass. There’s a mini-golf course, jogging track, and deck games. Teens enjoy their own parties and movies at Club O2, junior teens at Circle “C”, and pre-teens at Camp Carnival. For those 2 to 5 years, there’s Seuss at Sea fun activities! The kids’ play area is the largest in the Carnival fleet. Keep linked to the outside world at the Internet Café.
