Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Seems like they are cutting amenities and service in an effort to balance the books. It is the small things that were missing that were most noticeable.

Pros: ports

Cons: buffet

Recommends Carnival Splendor? No.

Ship Quality
Size was good. Layout poor. Decor lacklust r r little tacky. Ship appeared clear and well kept. Shold have better sanitation at buffet. Optional sanitizing machines at the entrance. Not used by many. Took awhile to have dishes. Removed. Shorted staff less service or slower service observed .
Food and Dining
Cheaper or more economical meals were served. Lot of chicken and starches. Always long lines at pizza\, hamburger and hotdog station. Anything fried was not well drained and soggy. Nothing noteworthy eaten during voyage. We even had salad on one night and pizza on another. Room service not worthwhile. Brunch menu strange. Ice cream good. Long wait for omelet at breakfast and wok at lunch. No carving station at lunch. Late nightpoor choices Iif at all. No midnight buffet here.
Cabin / Stateroom
Had spa suite. Not worth the extra money. Rooms just ok.
Service and Staff
Not experienced on this trip. Fend for yourself. Ice in room once a day til we tipped extra. Almost empty toilet paper roll on arrival. I changed it and left it on the stayed there all week.
Not much of interest without a fee. Lot of trivia games. No imagination.
Children's Programs
Closed a good deal and limited activities. Our child was 7.
