April 2015 - 7 Night Exotic Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Carnival Splendor
Not a good cruise
Cabin on rear of ship. two mile walk to get anywhere on ship. Instead of one large matress, we got two twins put side by side that kept sliding apart. And one of us every night kept falling in the gap. Food was not that good. Main dinning room was grossly understaffed. No matridee. No bread server on some nights. Waiter so overworked, he had no time to give anyone special treatment like sprinkling fresh pepper, clearing crumbs from your table. He was insanely overassigned to too many tables. Cabin room located right over heavy machinery that became unbearably loud whenever we arrived in any port. No enough shows. Excursions were grossly overpriced. Alcohol beverages were overpriced also. Very poor room service. You could only order cold cereal or a bagle, with watered down orange juice. And each time we ordered, they took over an hour to deliver it. Everyone we spoke to was unwilling to help us in arranging an early departure due to an early flight from an airport that was an hour and twenty minutes away from Miami. They kept saying there nothing they can do. But on the day of departure we saw guest that were classified "priority" get the same consideration that we were told did not exist. He had to "sneak" into the group with them like we were stowaways or something. We had something stolen from us right under the watchful eye of one of the ships camera. He reported it to security (a man named John). He called us on the phone more than twentyfour hours later and informed me that the ships security camera is pointed directly at the cheeseburger grill. And had no view of something that occured within two feet of it. With over thirty years in law enforcement, I was flabergased.
