Photo tour of the Carnival Splendor! The Carnival Splendor is a beautiful older Carnival Cruise Ship that you will love sailing on. One of my favorite parts of the Carnival Splendor is it is still original in it’s design and look. While I love the Carnival 2.0 updates that have been done on other ships I also love that Carnival Splendor still has all of the original look from when it hit the seas.
The art on the Carnival Splendor is a bit of a trip and you will hopefully find yourself wandering the ship just to see what is around the next corner. From the vibrant pink donut looking walls to the whimsical art there is just something fun about this ship.

Carnival Splendor Location
The Carnival Splendor is currently sailing out of Long Beach, California! This summer you can enjoy an amazing 14-day Alaskan adventure round-trip from Long Beach, Calif., featuring awe-inspiring sites such as majestic Hubbard Glacier and a day-long visit to Icy Strait Point, an unspoiled wilderness area offering some of the best whale and bear watching in the state and the world’s longest zip-line. The voyage will depart Long Beach and Aug. 25 and return Sept. 8, 2018.
In addition to a full day at Hubbard Glacier and Icy Strait Point, the 14-day cruise will feature the spectacular destinations of Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau, and Sitka, Alaska, along with a day-long call at Victoria, British Columbia. In addition to unique cultural opportunities and historic landmarks, each of these destinations offers awe-inspiring natural wonders, including calving glaciers, magnificent fjords, and native sea and animal life. A wide variety of shore excursions – from helicopter flightseeing and rainforest canopy tours to hiking, canoeing and kayaking expeditions, and alpine lake snorkeling – will also be available.
The 14-day Carnival Journeys Alaska cruise will also feature unique on-board experiences where guests can enjoy local cuisine, entertainment, and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call. Activities focusing on topics such as photography, cooking and arts and crafts, and a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day” will be offered, as well.
Carnival Splendor will reposition to Sydney in 2019, becoming the newest and largest ship based year-round in Australia. Carnival Splendor will undergo a significant bow-to-stern upgrade that will add features catering to Australian guests, including a variety of new dining experiences tailored to local tastes and a brand-new waterpark. The 113,300-ton vessel will make its maiden voyage from Sydney in December 2019 following a repositioning cruise from Singapore. Carnival Splendor currently operates seven-day Mexican Riviera and longer-length voyages to Alaska and Hawaii from Long Beach, Calif.
