So this time on the carnival splendor I was pleasantly surprised, things were much cleaner , food was taster, and staff was so very helpful.
i give credit for these changes to Nickos D Batistatos  hotel director. As I went to see him on my last cruise on the splendor when I found something that wasn't right on the cruise and he immediately fixed the problem and helped me and the 100 guest I was with the most pleasant cruise experience he changed my mind about this ship, and I'm so glad he did.
must do's on this ship
Malcom woo hoo burn is the best cruise director
Spa  it's the best spa and the service is unbelievable I just love the staff! Love the steam rooms and heated beds, hot tub was so relaxing after a long day on the beach and ports.
next the piano barking Russell Blues this guy was great and such a fun and lively group of people every night inThere.
next the adults only comedy club was great but the first guy wasn't so great Thomas brown but the next three were great Kelly Terranova.
I love to laugh!
i also enjoy my interior spa cabin and my room steward Tania she was the best! Room was always clean with many different animals, she was also are photographer every night  and we put on a cabin party and she helped us get items to decorate our door and kept our room sparkling when we had a cabin crawl.
i like the casino, I pretty much stayed even with the cash for the entire trip.
Other things we did on the cruise 
we are involved with and we scheduled a couple meet and greets, a game of LCR every sea day, a cabin crawl, a wine tasting, a poker run,a slot pull, gift exchange, an port excursions.
some people in our group did the steak house in the first night of the cruise and they got a free bottle of wine , so that's the best night to order the steak house, others did the chefs table and they said that's the best money they spent on the cruise.
i loved the drive in movies with my boyfriend it was nice to be outside with a romantic movie and popcorn and it didn't cost $50 lol ( free )
don't get the wifi it's very slow
caribbean dance party on Monday night was fun!
tuesday night had the best enter active games I love the adult quest game. Make sure to be prepared and bring 8 quarters, pilots license etc... Adult team game look it up on you tube.
the splendor has a nice adult only serenitydeck.
karaoke was none by our neighbors and they said they had a great time.
the dance classes are a lot of fun!
