We just returned from an 8 day cruise aboard the Carnival Splendor. Overall, we enjoyed this cruise. However, comparing it to the Carnival Valor which we did the last two years I would have to say the Valor is superior. The evening entertainment on the Splendor doesn't come close to the entertainment on the Valor. The evening dining also left something to be desired. Service was really poor on more than one occasion. But my biggest complaint would be the seating available for the breakfast and lunch at the Lido buffet. That was a joke. You had to look hard to find a place to sit most days. The crew, however, was great. We couldn't have asked for a better cabin steward. All crew members were very friendly and went out of their way to help if you needed any assistance. Basically, we were spoiled by the Valor and the Splendor did not live up to the expectations that we had envisioned.

Our cabin steward was great. It was always clean and neat. We couldn't have asked for more. This was a most positive aspect of the entire cruise.
