I am cruising on the Splendor Thanksgiving week, meeting Empress Bee and Prince Charlie, and will see Nanni in P.R. too. We sailed on the Freedom last Thanksgiving and loved it, hope John Heald is our CD on the Splendor! Also, plan to book the DREAM on July 1st for December 2009. WooHoo! Way to go Carnival-you are the BEST cruise line in the world!

We have not sailed on the Splendor yet but have been on 4 other ships. One thing they all seem to offer is the delicious Chocolate Melting Cake!
