Ship: Carnival Splendor

Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

Of the dozen or so cruises I have taken all over the world, this was the absolute worst. There was hardly a minute in which I felt comfortable...even on the rare occurrences when I was alone in the elevator, staring at the black and pink circles. The center of all activity seemed to be the casino rather than the atrium...walking anywhere it was unavoidable. And practically none of the useful spa amenities came without costs that were greater than the price of the cruise itself.
