Sail Date: October 01, 2012
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago

Been on this ship 3 times and loved it. This time the music was bad. Catered to loud DJ's playing rap type music for hours all sounding the same. No one danced. Should have had mixed music. 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, country, reggae instead of just constant loud rap type beat music. Lots of people stayed away from the Lido deck as the DJ's sucked big time. 35 yr olds to 65 yr olds mostly pay for cruises. They should get their type of music. Even if it was current it was unrecognizable to 98 %. Also Craig the director was horrible. He did nothing but announce things
from above. You rarely saw him and his accent was difficult to understand.
