Carnival Splendor is the sole ship of the Splendor class, a smaller, modified version of the Concordia-class cruise ship, operated by Costa. She entered service on 2 July 2008. At 113,323 GT, she was the largest ship in Carnival Cruise Line until Carnival Dream debuted in September 2009. Carnival Splendor is widely known for the November 2010 incident in which a fire started in the engine room, shutting down all electrical power to the ship.

The ship was originally designed and ordered for Costa Cruises but she was transferred to Carnival Cruise Lines during construction.

The ship is scheduled to undergo a dry dock in November 2019.

Christening

Carnival Splendor's godmother is Myleene Klass, who on 10 July 2008 christened the vessel in Dover in a lighthearted ceremony where she played Sailing on the piano, while a Royal Navy diver climbed up five decks on a rope, and broke the bottle of champagne on the bow by hand.

Areas of operation

Carnival Splendor's inaugural season began on 2 July 2008 with a cruise from Genoa, Italy to Dover, England, followed by cruises to Northern European ports. On 3 November 2008 she transitted to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

In January 2009, Carnival Splendor moved to Long Beach, California, a journey which took 49 days. The ship was too wide for the Panama Canal at the time, so it made the journey by sailing around Cape Horn. It was the first Carnival ship to have ever made this voyage. From Long Beach, she sailed year-round cruises to Mexico.

In March 2009, Carnival Splendor was the host ship for Mayercraft Carrier 2, a four-day cruise from 27 to 31 March, from Los Angeles to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico hosted by musician John Mayer and featuring music and comedy shows.

In February 2013, Carnival Splendor sailed again around South America, repositioning to New York City to cruise to the Caribbean and Bermuda. In November 2014, Carnival Splendor was re-positioned to Florida to offer seasonal seven-day cruises to the Eastern and Western Caribbean. In March 2014, Carnival announced the Carnival Splendor would sail seasonally out of Norfolk, Virginia before heading back to New York beginning in 2015.

In October 2015, Carnival announced that the Splendor will be re-positioned to China in 2018 offering year-round short cruises. However, Carnival subsequently announced in November 2016 that Splendor will instead relocate to Long Beach for the second time in January 2018, offering cruises to the Mexican Riviera. To move to Long Beach from the Caribbean, she would sail through the Panama Canal and will become one of the largest ships to ever cross through the new locks.

On 7 February 2018, Carnival Cruise Line announced Carnival Splendor will come to Sydney Harbour in December 2019, to operate year-round down under.
