What a vacation!!!
Carnival Splendor Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern
I had an amazing time on this vacation and this ship. Though like many say, the decor is a bit eclectic, but I enjoyed it. The staff was always working their tails off, constantly said hello with a smile, offered to help in any way and made the ship come to life. The only 2 little complaints I had was the small pool sizes (especially the adult-only) - we were crammed in there on sea days - and the lack of control the pit bosses seemed to have. I don't gamble a ton, but each night I did they allowed multiple people to chant "21" each time a new hand of black jack was dealt. Funny at first, but then very annoying and distracting. Multiple gamblers complained, but nothing was done. Overall, I would go on this trip and this ship again in a heart beat! I found the entertainment to be solid (especially the live music in the lobbies), the food scrumptious, the staff pampering and the ports breath-taking!!!

Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
If you like your wait staff the first night, as for them each night. They get to know you and will give first class service. Don't forget to bring cash and tip them, and your room steward, at the end of the week - they really work so hard for so little!
