Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was nice,The staff was excellent, the food is catered more to young children. Nothing like we are used to. Same breakfasts and lunchs for 7 days. The room stewards were awesome. The waiters we had were all excellent, why they are working for carnival is beyond me. There was children yelling in the bar areas, pool areas, party areas at 1 am. There was NO adult time. Children ran up and down the stairs, pushing every elevator button, up and down the corriders knocking on all the doors and running. Very upsetting. There needs to be adult time, Which there was none on this cruise.

Pros: not much

Cons: all the screaming children

Recommends Carnival Splendor? No.

Ship Quality
Ship was very clean. Layout was good.
Food and Dining
food was not as good as what we are used to on a ship. More like dennys or a coffee shop most of the time, BUT with excellent service.
Service and Staff
Depending on what you needed and who you talked to. A few (2) were like and what did you want me to do about it??? They are paying guests too. ( meaning the yelling children)
same as all cruises
Cabin / Stateroom
rooms were kept very clean
Children's Programs
lol.. the entire ship was a childs playgound. from the halls to the elevators, the stairs, even the pool bar, kids were everywhere.. just look at the video that was shot on this cruise, you will see more children at 11 pm running around having a good time, while the adults are sleeping. There was even crying kids in the casino...
