Review SummaryMy wife and I are 49 and 54. We purchased a Stateroom with a large ocean view. Instead, we got two port holes, "oh well". We had a great cruise experience and met some good friends. Our dinner partners were from Arizona and we are from California. We sailed to the Mexican Riviera. Our Sailing date was 10-10-10. My wife and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary on 10-12-10. The Carnival Splendor was amazing, it's like a brand new ship! Even though we were disapointed not to get the window we paid for. We have sailed with Carnival twice and once with Royal Caribbean, and all we can say is "Wow. But it would have been nice to get what we purchased. "So watch what you pay for". We really like Royal Caribbean's style and service. Carnival was alot of fun, and the service was really great. We were not impressed with the Carnival Splendor's nightlife options. The shows were great but the clubs were not exciting. We missed the different night out feeling we got with Royal Caribbean. Our stateroom was cozy and very clean with plenty of storage areas. Overall we have to say the ship was impressive, the staff was wonderful as always, and if you have never sailed before and have KIDS, the Splendor is worth a try.
