Carnival Splendor’s memorable interiors are inspired by “splendid things,” a celebration of the magnificent, lustrous and elegant.  Highlights include El Mojito, a promenade bar evocative of a sidewalk café in Old Havana, with Spanish-style columns, classic hanging lanterns, and terracotta floors; El Morocco, a cabaret lounge that re-creates the famous 1930s New York club with zebra-patterned banquettes, palm trees and murals of Moroccan scenes; and Our House, a sports bar that celebrates a team’s home field advantage, with models of famous stadiums displayed in glass vitrines located around the room.
