7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 10, 2010
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ship was awkwardly laid out as compared to its Royal Carribean counterparts. Up/down ... whoops wrong staircase / the dining room is in the way again / oops have to get around the casino somehow.

Much more reserved than Royal Carribean. Perhaps its a different corporate culture. Less diversity to the crew than Royal Carribean.

Stay near the pier. Too far into the older areas and there's not much more than just plain old Mexico.

Gotta take the Cabo by Land and Sea tour in order to get over to San Jose del Cabo ... quite the nice town and the drive between is very scenic.

This port is really dated. Debarking from the cargo terminal makes the whole experience that much less attractive.

Pros: Ship's Main Show Entertainment - Very High Quality

Cons: Waiter and Assistant Waiter Were Streched Thin and Not Very Sociable

Recommends Carnival Splendor? No.
