  3. Carnival Splendor
We like to sail out of SoCal so we got a balcony on deck 8 below lido deck (bad choice, massive chair dragging well into the night). Balcony was nice except for noise Food was very good, I've been on many other lines and their food was on par with others, Cunard, Princess, HAL. We ate in no specialty restaurant's. BBQ restaurant was good as was the deli where I liked the buffalo chicken sandwich. Hamburgers were also very good. Dinners and service in MDR were great and breakfast was good in MDR. scrambled eggs in Lido were a little fluid. Cakes were great More lively with a younger crowd, on HAL I get run over with scooters, on Carnival it's children. I did not like the deck layout, no walk around Promenade deck. Entertainment was not that good. Princess much better Good fitness center, they have a rower . Our one excursion was a zodiac looking for whales, great fun found a mama and baby whales

Came back to Carnival, great cruise
