We are done with Carnival. Nothing new with this cruise line. We did the faster to the fun and that is always well worth the $50. As far as the ship, there was very little entertainment on the Splendor. What was there was the same as on other Carnival ships as far back as 5 years ago. On sea days or nights, unless you had kids, there was very little to do except go to the casino. There was never a server when you wanted a drink whether you were by the pool or in the casino or in the theater and when there was one you waited so long for them to come back that the ice in the drink was melted and the drink was ruined. It was obvious that Carnival doesn't have enough people on the ship.

The shows were not very good. The comedy shows were held in a small bar room at the back of the ship and was ALWAYS standing room only. The most fun we had was at karaoke, watching the family from Brooklyn. The best entertainment was in the Casino or the lobby. We were very disappointed in the food in the main dining room. We were served cold food on the first night, so we didn't go back. The food at the buffet was just that, food at the buffet. Nothing special anywhere. We tried the taste bar one night, there were meatballs and bruscheta. Both tasted frozen. We did go to the steakhouse, which was absolutely worth the $35 per person. The food and service in the steakhouse was awesome. That was the highlight of the cruise. If you are considering a Carnival cruise, you should look elsewhere, there is nothing new or exciting on the Splendor or with Carnival.
