"LIVE" from Carnival Splendor -April 2, 2014

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am very happy that tomorrow morning I will be sailing from New York City on Carnival Splendor. This winter has been very cold, and it will be nice to get away for 8 nights for the Bahamas. We will be visiting Port Canaveral, Nassau, and Freeport. This is the same itinerary as I just sailed on Carnival Pride in January 2014. This cruise has an extra sea day, and I am very happy to be sailing for 8 nights.

 

Carnival Splendor was built in 2008 and is a one of a kind for “Splendor Class” She was originally designed for Costa Cruises but during construction she was transferred to Carnival. This ship was the largest ship in the Carnival fleet before Carnival Dream (2009)

 

This is my first sailing on Carnival Splendor and I will be looking forward to seeing her first hand. I have read many reviews and watched many videos about her public areas and cabins. This is the ship that lost power in 2010 while on a cruise from Long beach, CA. This is also the first ship to introduce the new “Seuss at Sea” affiliation for Carnival Cruise Lines. . .

 

 

My “LIVE” post will include daily commentary of my views while onboard. I will try to have photos posted daily of various ship views, public areas, and cabins. I really hope the Royal Flush Casino will be Radio “friendly”. Of course my posting will be dependent on my ability to maintain a valid wireless connection. I have read that the connections have been very fast . . .

 

 

This winter has been very cold and snowy here in Maryland, and I could really use a relaxing Cruise. . . Sit back, and relax . . .This should be a fun Cruise !

I thing I might be able to make a stop at Starbucks on the way the to the Manhattan Cruise terminal in the morning. . .

 

 

Thanks for tuning in . . .

My first Carnival experience was so much fun that I had to do it again!

 

Just sailed on the February 13 and March 17 sailings. Had a great time on both but a better time on the second one due to the wonderful mix of people that kept me laughing for 8 days.

 

I was almost going to do the April 2 as well but figured I needed a break.! I would like to sail once more from NY before Splendor leaves from there...

 

Looking forward to LIVE...I'll be there once again in spirit!!!!!

Radio,

Safe travels, excited to read another "live" report. Be interesting to know how Carnival has changed (for the better) after all the issues they have had. We live up north so know all about cold winter but we have to wait till Oct to travel south.

Enjoy, :)

Got the dial set for a special Radio program, got the feet up, and am ready to Listen! Everyone of a certain (LOL) age and beyond knows that this Radio is better than "The Shadow Knows" Great to be here with you!

Hello everyone . . . today is Cruise Day! I will be leaving for The Manhattan Cruise Terminal (NYCruise) at about 11AM. I am staying near Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) so it shouldn’t take too long for me to get there. I hope to arrive by around 1145- noon. I woke up very early, and am very excited to step aboard Carnival Splendor.

 

The forecast for Sailaway is sunny skies and mild temps (63F) There is a chance for rain, but I hoping for a beautiful afternoon for Sailaway (4PM). I think there might be a Starbucks very close to the pier.

 

 

Thanks for all the nice comments !

Ok, she is docked and it’s time for all passengers to kindly remove themselves from the vessel.
