975 Carnival Splendor Tips

Spend a couple hours immediately after boarding to learn the layout of the ship. Which elevator goes where, and which deck gets you to the main areas. Show up early for shows, some seats have posts that can block your view. If you are planning a pool day, show up early for a spot at the main lido pool. They usually have a lot of activities and entertainment there on sea days.

It was a bigger ship than the Miracle, if you've ever been on it. The layout is a bit different, so you may have some difficulty finding your way around. Your vacation is what you make it! Don't let anything or anyone ruin it for you!

Be prepared for all the pink. The steakhouse is tucked away, so get someone to help you find it so you'll not walking around in circles. If you haven't tried movies on the Lido, try it.
