Great time

Sail Date: September 04, 2011

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

Stateroom service was the best! Seemed like the rooms were cleaned 24/7. Although our room was the size of a box. Dining was great. Food was good and we didn't have to wait for a table. Loved Camp Carnival and lots of activities for kids to do. Great shows that were clean enough for kids to enjoy. Too much selling of everything (pictures, services, and mostly alcohol). Is it even appropriate to push the alcohol cart around the buffet area during breakfast..where children are?? We know where the bar is.

Pros: Stateroom service

Cons: Lines

Recommends Carnival Splendor? No.

Cabin / Stateroom
Tiny little box for 4 people. We had a queen-king size bed in the middle. 2 pull out beds from the ceiling on both sides. No room for sitting or walking. Congested room..but always clean.
Ship Quality
Confusing layout. Decor outdated. Clean for having thousands of guests. Restrooms were aleays decent in main public areas and nice in quieter places.
Food and Dining
Liked having dinner and a show.
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Tour was disappointing. They took us to a hole in the wall tequilla store, then an over priced restaurant. The view was lovely, the food was good, but overpriced. Worst of all, no running water at all. We couldn't wash our hands or use the toilet. Imagine everything that we touched before eating. Good thing I had wipes and hand sanitizer.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
We toured the town. Nothing to see. Nothing to do. If we do it again, we'll definitely do more water activities. We ate at Lorenzillos - one of the finest there and the food was a waste of money! Much better on the ship.
Don't Miss: Nothing
