Splendor not always so Splendid
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Carnival's biggest enemy is itself. They do things their way and really do not pay too much attention to the details. Food in the early sitting in the Black Pearl was consistently refrigerator More cold for the first two nights. Several folks at our table either returned food or just gave up. When we complained to the Food Service Director, we became the evenings entertainment. Service staff would joke abut the temperature of the food. It did get corrected but the question became: why was that a joke? Why was the issue not taken seriously?
Would I take a Carnival cruise again? Depends, if I have the family with us, maybe yes, because you can't beat the price. BUT, if I want class and comfort, the answer would be probably not!
One really great note: Cruise Director Malcom (WooHoo) was clearly sent to guest relations school. He was not nearly as obnoxious as he had been on Miracle. Actually, he kept himself in good control. Less

Nice, quiet location but nothing special. Elevator to spa did not work for entire cruise nor did the spa pool.
