Fabulous for our first time cruising!

Sail Date: January 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Everything was clean, sharp, and new looking. Service was impeccable.

Pros: The ice cream machine and spa; and the service was outstanding.

Cons: Some of the buffet food was mediocre.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Scheduling of events was very smooth and coordinated. Unfortunately, the pools were quite small and the ping pong tables were not placed in a good area. They were placed right on a walkway that blocked a door, and we had to keep pausing to let people through.
Food and Dining
Most of the sit-down dinners were very nice. The breakfast buffet and the omelets were our favorites. Also the Indian food, sandwich line, dessert, and pizza bar were excellent. However, the Mongolian, sushi, and lunch lines were mediocre.
Ship Quality
Easy access to everthing. Loved how most dining areas were located on one floor. Everything was spotless. The ship was huge, and we loved it.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a stateroom with a window view. Excellent location. Couldn't hear anyone around us. Furnishings were beautiful and it was more spacious than we thought it would be. Very, very clean! Very close to stairs and elevator.
Service and Staff
We have absolutely nothing negative to say about the staff. Never once saw housekeeping. They kept our room fresh three times a day. The dining service staff was phenomenal. Always smiling, always entertaining.
