A prettyv good cruise

Sail Date: August 21, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Clean, too much like Las Vegas, easy to move around, crowded pools, nice rooms, great staff, good exercise room, nice bars, good sound stage.

Pros: Entertainment (especially Issac and the rock review), food, the room, time ashore, staff helpfullness

Cons: Too much emphasis on shopping, too many kids, pool areas too crowded, drink prices high

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
We liked it a lot.
Service and Staff
Very good staff
Food and Dining
Overall, very good. The Gold Pearl dining room was great. The buffet on the Lido deck was good, though uneven. Tandori bar was really good.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
We really like PV.
Don't Miss: Zip lines, drinks on the beach.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We did the coastal tour, and that was not worth the money. Since we only had one day at Cabo, we didn't get a chance to experience much. I wouldn't buy any of the ship's tours--too expensive
