You get what you pay for. Staff complained about being overworked and were for the most part not the friendly or helpful. Difficult to navigate the ship. No decks go straight through. Hard to get around.

Deck layout is poor.

Cabin / Stateroom

Clean, pretty generic. At least they weren't pink.

Pros: clean cabin

Cons: Automatic mandatory $70 gratuity fee per person, including children on top of all other gratuities automatically charged. Everything except public pool and night movie is a fee.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? No.
