Overall Rating:

Sail Date: November 01, 2009
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship was clean, entertainment was great, bad customer service. The shore excursions were worthless and did not meet the positive advertizement, with exception the zip line was fantastic. The World Class fishing in Cabo was worthless and the true act of fishing never ocurred, you would be better off taking a tour of the bay. The excitement does happen when your ship colides with another ship, that was fun.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
We only eat in the Lido buffet and the food was predictable. Our other cruises on Carnival were great.


3 out of 5
The shows were great, but stay away from the casino, it is a waste of time. The slot payoff's are to low and no one wins

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
The children programs are great if you have kid's, but if you are looking for a get-away they are everywhere.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
No help at all, after finding out that we would not make port on time and miss our flight home.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean, but the photo setups blocked the isles ever night.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
First class

Pros: New Ship
