Good Mex Riviera Experience on Splendor

Sail Date: August 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Beautiful ship and we had a good cruise in August, but it was a bit cool when out at sea, so take a jacket for the evenings. Food quality is ok, but the Steakhouse is worth the $30/person. Been to some world class steakhouses and this ranks up there with them. One word of advice, book your excursions either before you get on the ship directly with the vendor or do it when you are at port. Save yourself 50%.

Pros: Beautiful Ship and the Excursions

Cons: Long lines at the buffet. Food quality avg at best

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Food and Dining
Service and Staff
I'm from Vegas. Ship entertainment is pale by comparison, but sometimes its good for a laugh like the Piano Bar guy who thinks he's Elton John.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a great cabin steward who always greeted us by name and on the last day recommended we take our luggage rather than have it picked up. Saved us at least an hour when exiting the ship.
