7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 27, 2011
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship was nice,The staff was excellent, the food is catered more to young children. Nothing like we are used to. Same breakfasts and lunchs for 7 days. The room stewards were awesome. The waiters we had were all excellent, why they are working for carnival is beyond me. There was children yelling in the bar areas, pool areas, party areas at 1 am. There was NO adult time. Children ran up and down the stairs, pushing every elevator button, up and down the corriders knocking on all the doors and running. Very upsetting. There needs to be adult time, Which there was none on this cruise.

Food and Dining

food was not as good as what we are used to on a ship. More like dennys or a coffee shop most of the time, BUT with excellent service.

lol.. the entire ship was a childs playgound. from the halls to the elevators, the stairs, even the pool bar, kids were everywhere.. just look at the video that was shot on this cruise, you will see more children at 11 pm running around having a good time, while the adults are sleeping. There was even crying kids in the casino...

Depending on what you needed and who you talked to. A few (2) were like and what did you want me to do about it??? They are paying guests too. ( meaning the yelling children)
