splendor not so splendid

Room Type: Inside

we went on the Splendor on October 8, 2013.  Upon arrival we were delighted, we love cruising.  That didnt last long.  There were no steel drums playing as we expected heading down to the caribban, only beyonce on their movie screen.  For the next 8 days we heard Mariah Carey, Phil Collins Billy Joel and Beyonce' being re-run all week long and it got old fast.  That doesnt do anything to give you the feel for the islands.

     The food and service were not great.  We did this itinerary 3 years ago on the Miracle and it was fantastic.

    Though we love cruising we will not be cruising the Splendor again.    Carnival is making cut backs in the wrong places and it shows.  Everyone was saying the same thing, where is the Calypso and Reggae music we are used to hearing on Lido and why is the buffet closed all the time.  This cruise just didnt measure up when compared to the others we've taken.
