Beautiful Ship

Sail Date: August 05, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Splendor is a beautiful ship with a wonderful crew. The ship was very clean and room was spacious. The food was decent. Couldn't enjoy the evening entertainment because it was always crowded. During the days on the ship, the pools were crowded. It was difficult to find places to "sun" unless you picked a spot right after breakfast. Carnival really needs to have entertainment during the afternoon also. It would be nice if Carnival used their theater for most of their entertainment.

Going to Cabos San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta in August was a mistake. It was very hot and humid. Going offshore was annoying as the locals were very pushy and would not take no for an answer. We had some follow us...was kind of scary. I really wanted to do some shopping, but again the vendors were pushy. Blah!

Pros: Great crew!

Cons: Not enough entertainment during the day.

Recommends Carnival Splendor? Yes!

Arnold was our cabin steward. What a nice guy! Our waiters and waitress were awesome. Especially enjoyed talking with Marion. He was always attentive and personable.
Always crowded. Didn't have a chance to enjoy evening entertainment because of the crowded conditions.
