3 out of 5

Port of call was less than desirable

Sail Date: April 24, 2011

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was fine but the interior decorator should be shot! Public areas, restautants, passage ways looked like one bad decorating selection after another1 My eyes hurt from this clash of designs concept!

Pros: Room and wait staff

Cons: 2 days in Cabo San Lucus is a joke! Too many kids! Same old stuff, over priced drinks, pictures, pictures, pictures and junk for sale in the gift shops!

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Same as above! Crew, wait staff and food are first rate! Just keep your eyes closed!
Food and Dining
Very good food and service!
Cabin / Stateroom
Small but well appointed and staff was excellent!
Good shows for adults and for children.
Children's Programs
Good program over all but some of the things promised to be done by the children were not done. Also the Children's Program seemed to be a "drop zone" for parents that wanted to party and ignore their children. If that is the case leave the children at home!
Service and Staff
First rate staff and crew!
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Poor choice of a port of call. Bar town with no feeling of what Mexico is all about! One day only in the future!
Don't Miss: Nothing!
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Beautiful Mexician City! Should have spent 2 days in Puerto Vallarta! History, culture and what a Mexician City and Life is all about. Too much for one day on a cruise.
Don't Miss: The downtown area and the drive down the coast.
