First Cruise

Sail Date: September 26, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The spa is the main reason we booked this particular ship. The spa amenities are well worth the stateroom upgrade!!

Pros: Friendly staff, clean facilities, & modern spa.

Cons: Not enough time at all ports.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Food and Dining
Dining room service is excellant. Salads are a bit wilted after 3rd day but overall most dishes are very tasty.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean, larger than we hoped. The only negative is the lack of power inthe hairdryer provided. It was not very strong or hot.
Service and Staff
Friendly +++
Our steward provided additonal hangers(we only had 9 in our closet).
Ship Quality
The only mess we saw was outside our stateroom. The tray we put out after our meal had not been picked up overnight until after 10:00 am.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Too touristy for our taste. Very short time period in this port.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Loved the combo excursion ATV/canopy. Didn't book onboard. Saved $180.00
Mazatlan, Mexico
Seadoo rental at Joe's was affordable and the vendors were friendly.
Don't Miss: Joe's cantina
