|Carnival Splendor Cheeseburger on Lido Deck|
After lunch we explored the ship and attended the mandatory evacuation drill. It seems like an imposition to interrupt the fun but it could come in handy if, God forbid, something happened. They show you were to go in the event of an emergency (muster stations) and how to use the life jackets. It is best to be prepared. Guess what? It was time to get ready to eat again! We choose the early dining time (6 p.m.) because it is similar to our regular schedule.The Splendor has a sushi bar open each night before dinner with little offerings of sushi most nights and tapas on others.

We attended the welcome aboard show with a live band, dancers and comedians. It is hard to believe that it all (except for alcohol) is included in the price! Back at the room our walrus towel animal greets us.
