7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: August 05, 2012
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
The ship was kept in great condition. It was clean and well organized. I did not notice any aspect of it that was run down or in need of fixing.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was fantastic. My favorite was the breakfast buffet on the Lido deck. But lunch and dinner were also great. I have nothing but great recommendations for the food on this ship.


3 out of 5
Activities and entertainment started off good\, but then faded toward the end of the week. The welcome show as GREAT and the Music Latin show was also very good. However\, on the show during Friday night\, they had technical difficulties and could not finish the show. Then on the last night\, the Carnival Legends show was not very well done. In fact\, it was quite boring. We also saw some comic acts...and they were very funny.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We had GREAT staff service on the trip. The crew who took care of our stateroom was excellent. His name was Marvin and he was from Costa Rica. He was very helpful and friendly. Also\, we had a wonderful waiter. His name was Erik and he was from the Philippines. He was the best waiter and very friendly. We could tell he gives 100% to his job.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was clean and upkept. It had sufficient lighting and storage for our clothes. However\, the shower was a bit small and since we were on the first floor\, it was quite noisy as we could hear the engine and the waves.

Pros: The food\, service\, staff and crew\, locations\, entertainment\, and facilities on the ship.

Cons: the prices for drinks and the steak house was not good.
