Ship Facts: Carnival Splendor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Splendor Deck Plans
Be prepared for crowds and salt water

Since the Splendor is Carnival's largest ship, you would assume the pools and hot tubs would be built accordingly. WRONG! I must say the oceanview stateroom we had included much more storage space than our last one on another ship and it was very ample for 2 children and 2 adults. But when we went to use the pools (1 average size and 1 very small), we found they were terribly crowded with children and adults. The one other pool reserved for adults included teenagers and that was even worse- very small and wall to wall people. My husband was shocked that they used salt water instead of fresh water and it hurt his eyes to go underwater. The hot tubs were a jumble of people squeezed together and kids splashing and spitting and disgusting. Trying to find an empty recliner around any of these pools was almost impossible during the day. I will say that the housekeeping staff was johnny-on-the-spot and excellent in their work. The buffet staff was also very quick to remove dishes for the most part but with 2 ice machines and one out of order, that is not enough to accommodate the crowds. I am not anxious to go on a cruise again for many years!
