July 2016 - 8 Night Southern Cairbbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor
I had an amazing time on this vacation and this ship. Though like many say, the decor is a bit eclectic, but I enjoyed it. The staff was always working their tails off, constantly said hello with a smile, offered to help in any way and made the ship come to life. The only 2 little complaints I had was the small pool sizes (especially the adult-only) - we were crammed in there on sea days - and the lack of control the pit bosses seemed to have. I don't gamble a ton, but each night I did they allowed multiple people to chant "21" each time a new hand of black jack was dealt. Funny at first, but then very annoying and distracting. Multiple gamblers complained, but nothing was done. Overall, I would go on this trip and this ship again in a heart beat! I found the entertainment to be solid (especially the live music in the lobbies), the food scrumptious, the staff pampering and the ports breath-taking!!!
