Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

I have been on six cruises. This ship had excellent food, entertainment and staff. The decor was not very tasteful (for a new ship) unless you love Pink. Boarding took almost 2 hours waiting in the hot Ft. Lauderdale sun. Very dis-organized. La Romana (Dominican Republic) is the worst port I have ever visited.

Pros: Food, Entertainment, St. Thomas, Rooms

Cons: La Romana, Hot Tub closed, Pink Zebra Circles, Boarding Fiasco

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!
