Carnival Splendor Virtual Tour

Deck 09


At the very front of Deck 09 are new suites that overlook the bow. The front half of the deck is all cabins. The cabins stop around the atrium. As you head aft from the atrium, deck 9 becomes all outdoors until you hit the buffet later in the deck.

Exiting the elevator lobby you’re at the ship’s main pool.

The Splendor hasn’t been fully Fun Ship 2.0’d so she’s missing the staples of the lidodecks. No Guy’s Burger, Blue Iguana or Red Frog.

Walking past the pool, you’ re back inside. The ship’s Lido Deck buffet restaurant, occupies this space.

Back outside you reach the aft pool. Notice something different? Unlike the Conquest-class, the Splendor’s aft pool isn’t covered and the deck above doesn’t encircle it.

The RMS Queen Mary models you see are there because she was home-ported in Long Beach, CA after she launched.

Deck 10


Deck 10 contains an outdoor area out front. This is considered the famous secret deck. It’s similar to those found on decks 06 and 07. However, since it sits atop the bridge, it extends out over the side of the ship. This is the ideal place to be when entering or leaving port.

The front third of deck 10 is all cabins. Those stop at the very top of the atrium.

After the cabins and atrium end, the deck is then outdoors. What’s unique about the main pool on Splendor is that there are actually two decks that encircle the pool. Plus there’s a retractable dome over it too.

Two hot tubs are tucked away in this area.

Past the pool area there is an outdoor sundeck as well as an indoor part.

At the front of the indoor part is the children’s area, Camp Ocean.

Back inside, the further aft part is the second level of the Lido buffet restaurant. This is where the BBQ station is as well.

Just behind the spa are 16 Spa grade cabins. I’ll cover this in the next section. Back outside there is the ship’s signature slide at the Thunderball pool.

Just past that is the top sundeck that surrounds the main pool. Here you can see the sliding glass dome.

Past the main pool, there is the kids waterpark tucked in there right before the funnel.

Past the waterpark, at the back part of the deck, is the ship’s Pinnacle Steakhouse back indoors.

At the end of the deck is a walkway that you can look over the aft pool from.

Deck 12


Deck 12 is split into two parts. The forward part contains the second level of the ship’s spa. The outdoor area surrounding it is the adults only Serenity area.

There’s this neat little sitting area that overlooks the bow. Would be a great vantage point when coming into, or leaving, port.

The aft section of the deck contains jogging track and basketball court.

Carnival Ships do not have a deck 13.

Deck 14


Deck 14 only has a forward section. It is the highest part of the ship that passengers can go to. This is where the minigolf course is.

The slide entrance is here too.
