November 2016 - Carnival Splendor to Caribbean - Western
Before sailing I read a lot of reviews and originally was skeptical of our upcoming experience. But just like most reviews you read...you can't make everyone happy! The ship was not "tired" or "dated" but appeared to be in excellent and very clean condition. The service from everyone was outstanding and all had smiles on. The buffet food was surprisingly good (not at all "bland") and the dinners (we were in Gold Pearl) were outstanding. Went to the Steakhouse for dinner...it was so good we went twice. Our waitress Renata was excellent...definitely go to the steakhouse!!! the aft pool was excellent as there were no kids running around.
There was a computer problem at check in which slowed things down and we left at 6 instead of 4. Cozumel was OK...rented a jeep and drove to the other side of the island and spent the day at Chen Rio. If you are not doing an excursion in Belize...don't get off of the ship...dirty and you don't feel safe at all! Roatan was excellent as was Grand Cayman.
Disembarking was easy and painless.
Overall...we had a great week!
