Don't sign up for the spa / thermal suite. Small pool, small locker rooms. Much better on NCL

Check out the Taste Bar. Great for a quick little bite while walking through the ship, without having to go to the buffet.

Take some time a week before embarkation day to study the lay out of the ship to help navigate the ship. If you're not a smoker, I would use deck 6 to go forward to avoid the casino. Unfortunately, the coffee shop is next to the casino keeping us from it.

Be sure to use the upstairs of the Lido dining area.

To travel from aft to fwd the easiest way I found was to drop to 2 deck walk the length of the hall and return to the deck you want , some decks have no thru acess , also good way to avoid the smoky casino area .

The grill has great food and the grandchildren loved having pizza and ice cream when ever they wanted. The Steak house is delicious!

Don't waste your time on any of the shopping or port seminars, it's all a soft sales pitch and lacks any quality info.

The Lido deck is the best choice for breakfast if and only if you are an early riser. Otherwise the lines are unbearably long. Room service is a good idea for breakfast but portions are small. If you want breakfast for two people, order enough for four. For prompt delivery order the night before.

better seating on the upper level of the Lido dining area.

Buffet dining is far tastier than the main dining rooms. Don't hesitate to fork up the extra $35 at the pinnacle steakhouse. Enjoy the natural beauty of st. Thomas, and the rich history and colonial architecture of old San Juan, Puerto Rico. Take an excursion at grand Turk, not much to see at port.

Bring a tray of cups of water and lemonade to your room so you don't have to pay for bottled water

I was a little hesitant to go on Carnival, but the experience was on par with other ships I've been on.

Get your tender sticker before breakfast so that you don't have to wait 2 hours to get to Cabo. Get the anytime dinner so you aren't confined to the same waiter/time.

Don’t overpack. And if you have any apprehensions about taking a cruise… Don’t. You will have a great time On Carnival splendor

They accomplished with all that was promised. Good price, good food and I felt at home. Definitely I will make more cruises with Carnival. Just need to choose a non hurricane season.

To get to the BBQ restaurant just go to the lido restaurant and use the stairs there to go up. It's located on one of those floors that cannot be accessed by just going from one end to the other.

Buy drink package and any excursions prior to boarding the lines are very long and you waste an extreme amount of time in them

Make sure to be selective of your room.

Review itinerary of events the night before so as to benefit from all the various activities the ship has to offer and or download the ship's app for daily update. Try to book shore excursions prior to your sail date so as to get the ones you are truly interested in doing.

Have dinner in the steak house at least one night.
