Great cruise

Sail Date: July 17, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship - Carnival's Splendor - was just the right size - large enough to have a variety of venues and activities - small enough to not get lost, and to learn my way around in just a couple of days. In terms of the activities, there was something for everyone, with just enough 'down time' built in to not get overwhelmed.

Pros: the variety of activities on the ship

Cons: the interior of the ship was cold! i packed cruisewear - shorts, t-shirts, sundresses. I needed more jackets and long pants!

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Walking around old town was simply too hot - nothing you can control, though! The beach was beautiful, but hard to get to. Isn't there a way to take a tender directly from the ship to the beach? Also, our excursion (snorkeling) got cancelled because of rough water - again, nothing you can control, but a disappoinment.
Don't Miss: Beach
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Loved the dolphin swim! Definite highlight of the trip. The beach was in walking distance of the trip - a definite plus - but the water had a lot of debris floating in it.
Don't Miss: Dolphin swim
