i always recommend the thalo spa. Always.  It's very relaxing, and we look forward to spending a lot of time there.   However........the spa on the Carnival Splendor........can't recommend.   Small. Very small compared to the likes of the Breakaway.   I know it's a smaller ship, but the pool is tight, to say the least. The locker room is small and dark. Tough to shave in such poor lighting.  Only one bench to sit on while dressing.

I'll leave out the part about the private elevator being out for the entire 5 days. OopsWink
