Review Summary

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The dining room food and staff was outstanding!! The buffet was typical buffet type of food. We loved the panini grill at the back of the ship. Waffles need some help!


5 out of 5
The comedy lounge was my kids' favorite part of the trip! The "Vegas-style" shows were good. I didn't like that they played Bingo right before every show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Fantastic for the most part! Did run into a couple of people with an attitude, but they were the exception!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The "pink circles" didn't bother me, I thought the decor was gorgeous!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Bed was comfortable and always tidied up by our attendant Arnold!

Ports Of Call

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
We loved Puerto Vallarta, we went on the Pirate Adventure that took us to a secluded beach for snorkeling and kayaking. Then, we went to the flea market and had fun bartering with the locals!
Don't Miss: Pirate Ship Adventure...One of the best excursions we have ever done!

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
The first day we went on a shopping tour, and we were disappointed! It was REALLY hot and humid.
Don't Miss: Canyon Canopy ZipLines! Exhausting, but worth it!!

Pros: Fantastic excurions and amazing service on-board.

Cons: Can't think of anything!

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!
