Verified Review
7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 16, 2009
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship is large but seemed a little chopped up. Getting from area to area didn't flow smoothly. The food was very good but not spectacular. Service areas were great but the crew didn't seem as enthusiastic as we're used to.

The entertainment was good but not the "first class" I've seen in the past. Some of the dancers were older. There was no "hype" for activities on board. Sometimes they just didn't happen.

Slightly larger than some cabins on previous ships. That was a bonus

Downtown was a good walk from the ship (about 4 miles) but the best bargain was boarding the local buses that go right by the ship and back. Only $1.00 for two people.

The beaches are a good walk so if that's your preference, take some transportation.

It's worth taking the city tour in this port. Things are pretty spread out.

Pros: Service

Cons: Ship Layout
