  3. Carnival Splendor
It was supposed to be Eastern Carib but because of hurricanes we were rerouted. Wish we were given a choice to go or opt out for a later time. We were not given any choice. Also it was a re-positioning from Fort Lauderdale to Miami, We didn't get on ship till 5/530 so we missed almost a whole day since we are usually on board around 1130/12. Good: The Crew (waiters Pura,Imade Adiana Minnie) The food was excellent along with the service in the dining room Clean ship Good entertainment /good VIP party Bad Rooms are small even though we are Platnium members we had a small room on lowest deck. NO UPGRADES Really small pools for such a large ship The ship was packed so crowded Worse It rained everyday and we were unable to get off the ship or go on any excursions. We got off for an hour in Cozumel and got soaked. Rotan Hondouras had mudslides and high winds and rain and were unable to get outside of the ship. We could not tender in Grand Cayman due to rough seas. The only port we could get out of the ship and walk around is Belize and it was not a good port. Still raining. Weather is not carnivals fault but maybe we could have been rerouted to a place for at least one day where it wasn't raining and miserable. We really did not have a good time packed on the full ship with no opportunity to explore ports. Will probably not go on Carnival again. Felt we were not treated well.

Good, bad and worse
