Review summary

Been on this cruise 3 times.  We dislike the Splendor of all the 8 Carnival ships we have been on.

It is the layout that we dislike he most.  We had a 8N cabin, aft balcony.  The noise from sliding deck chairs woke us up at 5:30 each am.  Deck chair hogs were in full force.  Disembark was a joke, took over 2 hours and we had #1.  People on both sides slammed their doors all day and night.

We did the Steakhouse the first night with 6 others and had too argue with them to get 4 bottles of wine.  The food was great every night except the Lobster in the MDR you could not eat.

Service and the rest of the cruise was great.

We will do this again, but not on the Splendor until it is upgraded.

All the Ports were great.  Did beach at each except Grand Caymen where you have to swim with Stingrays.
