7 Night Exotic Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 01, 2015
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6268
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The overall rating is poor.  The food was pedestrian at best.  Prime rib was 3/8" thick.  Steaks were miniscule.  Portions were small.  The buffet was OK, but very crowded.  Only one specialty restaurant and that was an upcharge of $39.  The thought of an upcharge in the dining room of $20 for a steak is ridiculous.  The room, with balcony, was very small.  One of the smallest we have had on this, our 11th cruise, but first on Carnival.

The entertainment was stale.  Same folks nearly every night.  We missed an excursion reservation because the ship did not tell us that the port we were at was an hour ahead of the ship.  Embarkation procedures were much too long and the assistants in the Miami building were of little help.

We bought a drink package, but all bars used shot glasses; no free-pouring anywhere.  This may help the Carnival bottom line, but the drinks were skimpy and no doubles were allowed.

We will not be using Carnival in the future.
