7 Night Mexican Riviera (Los Angeles Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 21, 2012
Ship: Carnival Splendor
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Easy to maneuver. They need to pay more attention to individual rooms as room next to ours was constantly smoking marijuana. Lots of kids on ship and they let some stay in adult pool area. Seems the crew is afraid to confront anyone about rules which ruins it for others. If Carnival has to get cheap and get rid of bands at least the DJ's should play different styles of music. They played music no one danced to, mostly no one ever heard before and I'm familiar with 20's to current. And no one seemed to be enjoying. Lido deck was used to enjoy sun and fun but you had to leave periodically to get away from the constant overly loud music.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Same food on every Carnival ship. Good but they should change it up. We've cruised 7 times and there's never any surprises in the menu for sure.

Comedians were extremely funny. Couple of good shows. Couple were boring. Lots of other games and trivia always going on. DJ's were horrible.
