What Should I Pack?
The first thing to remember is that you're on vacation and you are onboard Carnival Cruises’ ‘Fun Ships’ to have a good time. Secondly, remember to travel light. Keeping these two pieces of advice in mind are very important for packing.
Casual attire and resort wear is typically appropriate attire onboard and in-port. Shorts, slacks, sundresses, blouses, sandals, etc., are appropriate for women, and clothing for men is just as casual. Travelers might also want to consider bringing along a sweater or jacket for cool evenings and inexpensive rain gear in case of a sudden shower. While restaurants typically have casual dress code, there are also instances where you may visit a specialty restaurant or attend a special Captain’s Cocktail Party and Gala Farewell Dinner that requires business casual or formal attire. For days in port where you will be participating in various shore excursions, you should dress accordingly to the dress codes of the sites you are visiting, as well as bring a pair of sneakers for strenuous walking.
Formal Wear: Men: suit and tie, sport coat, tie and slacks; Women: evening dresses, cocktail dresses; pantsuits.
Casual Resort Wear: Men: sport shorts, slacks; Women: dresses, skirts, shorts, Capri pants.
*Please Note: Shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, and bathing attire are not permitted in the Dining Room during dinner.
Fitness / Recreation
Stay fit while onboard Carnival Splendor with the state-of-the-art fitness center. Take advantage of the classes, machines, and weights or go for a jog on the outdoor track.
Experience the catchy music, exotic dancing, and exciting costumes that make these spectacular stage shows nothing less than the best. Head over to the pool for a movie beneath the stars at the Seaside Theater. Whether you’re looking for something flashy, musical, or just plain entertaining, you’re sure to find it during one of Carnival Splendor’s shows!
Bars & Nightclubs
Toast to the friends you came with and the friends you made while onboard Carnival Splendor. ‘Bar hop’ around the ship to experience all of the different kinds of lively bars and lounges and eventually end your evening dancing the night away at the nightclub.
From comedians to musicians, there is never a lack of live entertainment onboard Carnival Splendor. Partake in karaoke night and become a star yourself!
If you’re hoping to look and feel your best while cruising to exciting destinations, make an appointment at the spa onboard Carnival Splendor. Choose from an array of treatments such as facials and massages, or even get a new hairdo at the salon. No matter what you decide, you’re sure to leave the spa feeling relaxed and rested.
Carnival Cruises has raised the bar when it comes to offering an array of dining options and Carnival Splendor is no exception! Select a pasta dish, salad, aged New York steak, seafood, or a low-fat Spa Carnival entree and pair it with a top-notch wine selection for an evening to remember in the signature dining area. For a more relaxed atmosphere, sample the eclectic cuisine and enjoy the scenery at the casual eatery onboard. If there’s a picky eater in the family, no problem! Carnival Splendor offers a children’s menu that includes plenty of kid-friendly options, as well as a 24 hour room service menu and a 24 hour pizzeria.
