It's a 11 hour drive to Long Beach Cruise Terminal (from the Salt Lake/Utah Valley area). Parking is available for $15 a day or there are also some good stay & cruise deals with free parking.

Or there are 3 airports within shuttle distance: Longbeach (12 miles), LAX (23 miles) and John Wayne (31 miles).  Round-trip flights from SLC are in the $250 range.

Transport from airport to Ship can be arranged.

I have some exciting classes planned for this cruise and more information on them will be available in December.

Excursions options:
"The 113,300-ton Splendor marks a new class of vessel for Carnival. One of Splendor's most impressive features is its luxurious, 21,000-square-foot spa, the most elaborate in the fleet. Pan-Asian in design, the Cloud 9 Spa spans two decks and includes a state-of-the-art fitness center that easily rivals any at sea. And, with 22 lounges and bars, outdoor movies, a water slide and a singing maitre d', Splendor also delivers what Carnival passengers have come to expect: fun."

Passport is not required, but recommended.  Because this is a closed loop cruise, you will need your driver's license and birthday certificate OR passport.

What a great Christmas present this would make! :)

Oh my goodness! I would be in HEAVEN! What a great idea - of course, no surprise from the Queen, herself. Please take lots of pictures and share lots of stories afterwards so I can live vicariously.
