We had a wonderful time on the Carnival Splendor cruise we returned from last week.  All the staff on the Splendor were very friendly and courteous and went out of their way to be sure we were well cared for. 

The nightly shows in the main theater were excellent.  The costume changes by the singers and dancers were gorgeous and amazingly many, and the choreography was outstanding.

The comedy shows were also very good.  Unfortunately the venue for the comedy acts is too small. Long waiting lines and jam packed shows were uncomfortable.

We had 4 ports on this 7 day cruise.  Each and every one was a lot of fun.  I think on future cruises we will try to stick to 3 ports as we also enjoy the ship itself and it got to be quite exhausting with the day and nightlife!

Although this was a very large ship, I never felt like there were too many people there (except at muster and the comedy show).  All public areas were very well maintained as was our cabin.

Dining room dinners in the evening were excellent. The Lido buffet was good, but would like to have seen a varied menu for breakfast, it got boring.

George Town, Grand Cayman
So much to do here - this was our 5th time here and were tired out from the last 3 days of ports, basically did some shopping here and enjoyed the people.


Deck 5 goes all the way from one end to the other of the ship....don't try getting from one place to the other on decks 3 or 4.
