over all we had a great time. we cant wait to plan our next cruise. This was our first cruise we have done. We wanted to drink and thought about getting the drink package but it was pretty pricey. we did math and it just wasnt worth it. It would have been better if we could have picked daily drink packages rather than having to purchase it for the whole cruise. there were 3 days that we didnt drink because we were on excursions. Thats what made it not worth it. if we could have gotten it for the 4 days we were on sea, that would have been perfect. other than that, GREAT trip!

Pros: met good company. food 24/7

Cons: pricey drink packages.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Ship Quality
we thought the ship was huge but every one we sat with at dinner said that it was one of the smaller ships they have been on.
Food and Dining
i loved having food 24/7. i liked having something different to choose from every night in the black pearl dining.
Cabin / Stateroom
the only reason i gave it 3 :) was because there was something that kept hitting our wall that was really annoying. like every time we would hit a wave, whatever it was would roll and hit the wall where are head board was. it was hard to sleep because it did it almost all night, or really early in the morning.
Service and Staff
every time we left the room and came back it was cleaned. (if we mesed it up) always clean cups, and he would always refill our ice can.
there were some good shows, and some bad.
