Carnival should change their moto from "The Fun Ships" to "The ships where we pack as many people as we can into an environment where everything is designed to take your money and they crew is forced to up-sell everything onboard!"

Need new TVs. Almost everyone I talked to said their TVs were almost completely burnt out or colorless. (Not much to watch but "Carnival" programming anyway!)

No problems getting on or off and no lines either. That was a pleasant surprise!

Nice city. It's been 7 years since I was there last time and I loved it this time! It's very beautiful and the weather was perfect!

Pros: The locations we went and the weather

Cons: Everything on the entire ship is designed to cost extra or be up-sold.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!
