7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 21, 2016
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 1299
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We had a fun time on this ship.  The weather did not cooperate as hoped.  We can't blame the ship for the bad weather.  Deco needs updating and cushioned seating on the Lido deck food area is to low for the tables.  When ports are changed more info should be supplied.  More info listed below.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Loved the steakhouse! Everywhere else the food was good but often great. Most servers knew what they were doing but not all. Booth seats on the lido were to low for the tables. Slippery floors at times on the lido deck food service areas. I give it a 7 or 10.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
More than enough things to keep you entertained. Games, mini golf, water slide, pools and hot tubs. Did not use the spa.

Everything we saw and participated in was fun. Loved the comedy shows! The music was to loud in the main lobby.

All the people we interacted with were very nice. Our room steward was awesome! Very few communication misunderstandings.

Ship Quality

Very dated. The ship rocked a lot, even on calm waters. Not wild about dots. Seating was not very comfortable.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We liked our cabin. Very roomy feeling. Had a brief look into the inside cabins, they were way to small! The ship rocked a lot! Glad we had a lower cabin. I managed to live with only ginger root tabs until the winds and waves hit and had to up to Meclazine for motion sickness.

Ship Tip

Definitely do the steakhouse dinner!

Transportation was easy. Hotels very costly. I only found one that included free airport and to the port shuttles. Red Roof Inn Plus near the airport.

Due to high winds we did not dock near Georgetown. We were tendered to a location in the middle of no where. You could not walk to shopping or entertainment. Cost $5 per person each way for a ride into town. Arrived 2 hours early with nothing to do but wait for our excursion to start. Just before 1/2 of it was cancelled. Swimming with sting rays. Which only allowed us to go to the Turtle farm and swim with turtles. Loved swimming with the turtles. If we had known about the taxi fare we would have stayed on ship till closer to our excursion time. Did not want to pay to go into Georgetown and back twice for only an hour each time.
