Carnival Splendor first casted off in the summer of 2008. She's the largest, most innovative Carnival cruise ship yet and the only one in her class.
Some of her best features include her massive Cloud 9 Spa and state-of-the-art gym, and equally huge Camp Carnival kids' club that provides entertaining activities for children age 2-15. There's a choice of indoor and outdoor pools - one with retractable Sky Dome for when the weather turns cloudy.
Add to this a fantastic choice of restaurants, bars and lounges and you definitely have the makings of a splendid family cruise holiday!
