Nice cruise

Sail Date: December 01, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The ship was okay. It was a little difficult to get from one end of the ship to the have to go up or down floors at times to get where you want to go. When there were children running down the halls\, it sounded like elephants....I haven't noticed that on other ships. The spa seemed to have some issues - they scheduled activities and then canceled them without notice. We heard numerous complaints from other guests about the spa\, however our appointments were handled very well and we were pleased with our service.

Pros: Very relaxing

Cons: Limited activities on sea days

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

The shows were very good. The singers and dancers were EXCEPTIONAL! Very professional - you could tell this group practiced a lot! The ship activities on the other hand\, were a little lacking. Most days\, there really wasn't anything entertaining to do outside of the evening shows.
Service and Staff
Staff was okay....not exceptional.
Cabin / Stateroom
We booked late and ended up with bunk beds\, but we made it work. The room was very spacious\, and the bathroom was the nicest cruise ship bath so far (out of 7 ships). Everything was very clean with the exception of the carpet - not sure if the vacuum was working!
Food and Dining
The dining room food was pretty good. There seemed to be plenty of variety in both the dining room and the buffet. The pizza was over the top! Excellent quality and taste\, and made fresh!
Ship Quality
The decor looked cheap and cheesy. The ceilings in the main dining room were too low\, and the pearl decor wasn't attractive - the clamshells containing 'pearls' located on the ceiling kept reminding me of sunny side up eggs. While it appeared that cleaning was going on continuously\, the results weren't evident all the time. The theatre was very nice and very comfortable. Most of the public areas were comfortable. The atrium was very nice\, although a little small.
