  3. Carnival Splendor
I've been meaning to cruise on the Splendor for some time, finally got around to it and was so looking forward to it. This was my birthday cruise so we booked a cloud 9 spa balcony cabin with hopes of spending time in the spa. Plus we were looking forward to visiting new ports. The best part of our cruise was hands down our cabin steward Sharlene. She was wonderful. The next highlight was the Steakhouse, by far the best meal we had onboard, and highly recommended. MDR and entertainment were just okay, I was a bit disappointed in both. The worst part of my cruise was the spa, after finally deciding to spend the extra money on the spa cabin, I was very disappointed when the rooms and pool we're having temperature issues. I'm sure I will try it again on another ship, but was very disappointed that I could not enjoy these amenities while on the ship. Myself and several other guest did speak to management regarding it and received a $40 OBC and the standard we are sorry. Over all my sister and I had fun entertaining ourselves and already booked our next adventure. I'm very happy I got a chance to sail on the beautiful, funky pink ship, before she arrives in her new home in Australia.

Cabin Review

Cloud 9 Spa Balcony
Cabin 8P 1017
Nice and clean, the TV had to be replaced, but no big deal there it took the tech all of 15 minutes to swap it and set up the new one. Again Sharlene was wonderful.
