Review summary

Been on 22 cruises..lots of Carnival...dont really rate Splendor as one of favorites. Prefer eastern caribbean....much cleaner and better beaches. Splendor does not have a lot of the restaurant stops as other ships. Sort of an odd layout compared to other Carnival ships. The Lido offerings has been less than previous cruises...still pretty good, but not as many choices. Excellent TANDOOR INDIAN food......the best of any in a long time. .....always fresh and not a ton of people in line.

Embarkation

Food and Dining

Not the Michelin Guide top 10 but pretty good. Lido is generally good. Please cruisers....stop eating food whilst in line....cant you wait 3 minutes to sit down? It's not polite to lick your fingers while going through the line. Pizza liine is packed and forget about the WOK unlesss you have half hour ( people....please quit ordering 4 meals and holding up the line. Taste Bar offered some nice treats...BBQ was good but not as good as GUYS on other ships. CARNIVAL still does not enforce DRESS CODE....t shirts,jeans on formal night.....?? COME ON!!!
