The Carnival Splendor has recently gone into dry-dock for renovations. We sailed in August 2015, prior to the dry dock. So, your cruise will only be even that more better!
I enjoyed my cruise on the Splendor very much. As a gold card member on Carnival, I was extremely happy for all the “Welcome Home” greetings I received from the crew, as it was truly so. I feel such an affinity with the ships, crew and experience of Carnival that it really is an experience where I am sad to leave the ship, even more so than other cruise lines. I think this has a lot to do with my first experience as an adult cruiser being on the Carnival Destiny (now the Sunshine). The size of the Splendor is what I love the most. Not too small, but not so large that you have to fight the crowds.
On Carnival, I feel like there is always something to do.
