  3. Carnival Splendor
Choose this cruise because it was going to Jamaica. Don't ever get on Carnival Splendor! The service totality sucked and you couldn't eat what you wanted and when you wanted too. They even dished out the bacon which made my hubby very angry. Two pieces for him was not enough and when he asked for more she told him to move the line. Very rude staff also.. Also,You would be standing in long lines and when you would get up there to get your food they were taking it away and closing down the buffet even though the line was still long. Then they would tell you that you need to go to back of ship to deli to get a sandwich. Then when you get back there you had to stand in line for at least another hour to get sandwich because they only had one worker working. At night the only place to eat was the pizza shop and the pizza was lousy. Then at certain times they would close down the bar on the lido deck when things were going on and if you wanted a beer or drink you would have to go clear up to the top of the ship just to get a beer c'mon really? Our room was only cleaned once a day by the maid not by room steward and then it still wasn't cleaned right because we found luggage tags to someone else from over a month ago. The entertainment on the ship was terrible for adults and just the colors on the ship were very ugly. Our experience was so bad that hubby wanted to get off in Cozumel Mexico and fly back home. I would never recommend this ship to anyone, It just wasn't us complaining many ,many other people were complaining all week on there even those who had taken 20 or more cruises were telling us this one has been the worst ever.. Getting off at the ports was the best thing for us and we just dreaded having to get back on such a lousy ship. So people save your money and book with another cruise line or maybe another ship because this one was so terrible, and To think that we had to deal with all of this on our 15th Anniversary cruise just was not worth all the stress from it! I think Carnival should give everyone a refund....that's how bad it actually was..If we would of had passports instead of birth cert. with us we would of flew out of Cozumel to home instead of dealing with that ship for two more days..

It totally sucked!
