Our 1st Family Cruise

Sail Date: June 20, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Oceanview

This is our first family cruise- 5 members so we did not know what to expect. But it was good+. The professionalism of the staff was great. The quality of the rooms were wonderful. The Black Pearl Restaurant had "so-so" menu choices and quality- the exception was the menu on formal nights. The dancing and music lounges were fine and enjoyable. The major drawback so that the World Cup Games during the Group Play phase were not shown. This was our most major dissappointment with the cruise.
Best Regards.

Pros: The Vroom Show

Cons: No Coverage of the FIFA World Cup

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Food and Dining
Would have liked to see more seafood. This is what we were looking for.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Pillows were a bit too big and hard
Service and Staff
Bingo games and the music shows were the best.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
A small ship tour of the rock formations was fun.
Don't Miss: Not Applicable due to personal taste', risk profile, etc.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
We took a "Van Tour" of this port. We ate at the Nogalitos Restaurnt in the nearby "sierra madre" foothills. We also participated in the "canopy" view/ride of the same foothills. We also visited the Ctholic Cathedral
Don't Miss: Not applicable due to personal taste, risk profile, etc.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Mazatlan was a much more industrial type of port. The boardwalk was great but the industrial feel of the town was still easily discernible.
Don't Miss: Not Applicable due to personal taste', risk profile, etc.
