May 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Western
We had a good time, the food was good, the service and staff were perfect, the ship was clean and in great shape being 12 years old, with the food & drinks all good. The only downside was not being able to escape the smokers. While Carnival provided certain areas for smoking, we had a balcony stateroom with some neighbors abusing the Non-smoking balcony areas, which prevented us from using our balcony very much. Also the casino allows smoking so while we wanted to spend some time at the black jack table, this was not possible for us with the stagnate smell of smoke through-out the room. Other than the smoke issue we had a great time, and will do it again maybe on a more restricted smoke free ship.
