My husband and I have had the pleasure of sailing on The Splendor many times and can't wait for this voyage, as usual! You are in for a great time, be prepared to enjoy yourselves. Best advice, get involved in the activities, do things you wouldn't do at home, embarrassed, in front of family and friends, have fun, sing karaoke, dance, go to the comedy club and enjoy. The ports are great, great excursions and lots to do in both ports. Our 1st cruise was just the start of a fabulous Carnival addiction, over 210 days at sea since 1989 and no end in sight....get ready, set, go! See ya there!
