June 2015 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Eastern
This cruise was about what I expected for Carnival. Too large a ship for my tastes. All of the music played on the ship was at full volume; very annoying. I enjoy a martini before dinner with some soft dinner or classical music. Ours was loud and annoying. Believe Carnival had not provided sufficient wait staff. They did a pretty good job taking your order and serving your food; once that was done they were busy taking care of other tables and if you needed additional bread, drinks it was very hard to get their attention. The food was generally average; although I did have a great prime rib and lobster tail.
In general Carnival was catering to a young crowd interested in partying.
