7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 11, 2012
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

As veteran cruisers, we have sailed quite a few cruise lines, and the food on Carnival is topnotch. This voyage led us to two delightful ports--Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, both gems. I like the new policy that does not allow reserving deck chairs. The ship saves some hot tubs and pools for adults, which is nice.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Choose lobster or prime rib--or both? The danger is eating too much and having no appetite for the next feast.


3 out of 5
We never found the jazz, classical, or interpretive singers that can make a cruise special, but unexceptionable singers and dangers and very funny comedians.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Room steward and head waiter were as good as any we've met. Excellent service all around.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
So big you can get lost. Magnificent, 10-story lobby with glass elevators.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cruise ship staterooms are never roomy, but this one had everything we needed and was kept spotlessly clean. It was, of course, well populated with a variety of towel animals.

Pros: The food was amazing, and the ports of call were treasures.

Cons: The entertainment was good but not great.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!
