Our waiters at dinner were the best. Plenty of recommendations that were excellent. Only time we had issues was when we scheduled excursions off ship on our own--we were usually met with since you booked on your own, we cannot answer your questions when we only wanted to confirm arrival times, how long does it take to get off the boat so we could make it to our scheduled tours. Just know that ship time does not change as you cross time zones so your posted arrival time is not the same as the time on land.

Only item missing from room--a clock.

I only wish we had two days at this port instead of two in Cabo. So much more to see. Half our party went zip lining at El Eden. Swam in the river and slid down the waterfall. Great fun. The other half of our party went shopping downtown. They said they really enjoyed seeing the heart of the city.
Don't Miss: Zip lining at El Eden

Snorkling in Chilleno Bay was excellent. If the water is cold as it was in early April, spring $5 for the wet suit.
Don't Miss: Snorkling.

Pros: Kids activities

Cons: Honestly--no clocks--hard to tell what time it was.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!
