7 Night Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 17, 2016
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 6402
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Worse cruise we've been on. Our 3rd with Carnival. Our cabin 6402 was directly above the Red Carpet Disco or dance club bar. Our room was vibrating from music below until closing nightly!! Ship was poorly designed to say the least!  Totally unacceptable. Should have received deep discount for room!!! Dining room was such that you nearly touched seated guests in booths if you walked in their side of pillar. We were seated at back of dining room. Servers were unable to visit as they were understaffed. Food was ok but never compares to Royal Carribean. All service onboard were nice friendly people. That's only good thing about cruise. 


We we are on Carnival Sunshine on April 8-16 out of Port Canaveral. Already paid for as we are cruising with our children (Vierig family of 4). We are currently booked in Inside Cabin. I believe we should be upgraded at no charge due to the unacceptable room we spent 7 days in on Splendor!  If not, this will definitely be our last cruise with Carnival. The Fun Ship wasn't fun last week when we laid down to sleep every night.  I hope someone does something to make this right for us.
