August 2016 - 6 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor
Rules should be heeded
The ship looks tired, not well maintained, but comfortable, The biggest problem that I had was that the rules for being back on board at the correct time were not enforced. There was not one time when we were not waiting for tardy passengers who didn't care that they were late. In yesteryear they would have been left behind and had to catch a plane to the next destination. Surely if one is allowed to break one rule how is it possible to enforce others?
The food in the Pinnacle Dining Room was exquisite, however the standard of the food in the Lido dining area was substandard at best. The service in the Black Pearl was dreadful.
However, overall it was a lovely time and the stateroom was clean, homely and relaxing.
