Carnival Cruise Lines' new 113,300-ton Carnival Splendor is a new class of ship with a host of new additions including exclusive new "spa staterooms" that surround a 21,000-square-foot health and wellness center, which feature Carnival's first elaborate thermal suite and thalassotherapy pool covered by a glass dome. Surrounding the facility are 68 exclusive "spa staterooms" - also a first for Carnival.

Guests in spa staterooms have exclusive entry access to the adjacent spa facilities and receive a wide array of special offerings including priority spa appointments, unlimited use of the thermal suite and thalassotherapy pool, complimentary fitness classes and other amenities.

Its family-friendly facilities include a water park on Lido Deck, along with a two-level 5,500-square-foot children's play area - the largest in the Carnival fleet, part of Carnival's "Camp Carnival" program - along with a teen club featuring a dance floor, DJ and high-tech sound and lighting system, part of Carnival's "Club O2" program.

A comprehensive golf program with opportunities to play top European and Caribbean courses is available.

Of the ship's 1,503 spacious staterooms, more than 60 percent offer ocean views or private balcony.
