Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The fitness center, beautiful!!!! They have everything you need, its private, and just an amazing workout experience. I also really enjoyed Hasbro: the game show i liked the fact that it included real children onboard who were ready to show off their amazing skills, very heartwarming to watch. Also on the last day my family and i went to the lip sync battle OMG if i stoped laughing for even one second i do not remember it was just very fun and i highly recommend anyone on the carnival splendor to attend.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
By far the best service i have ever received everyone one was super friendly, outgoing, and attentibe to our needs. Our stateroom steward, voltor, deck 8 was very kind and made sure we were always comfortable in our cabin. And our waiter, eduardo and his assistant,(black pearl late dining) were just incredible people! They always made dinner time the thing that my family and I looked forward to even if we were not hungry because of their amazing personalities and service!!! If there is one thing i miss most about being on this incredible ship are seeing these two amazing people every night at dinner. And having my room cleaned every day of course!!! Also i had a photoshoot with billy mendoza from pixels studio he was very professional and made me feel very comfortable even though i was sometimes strutting a pose in front of people. He obviously knows his job well and honestly one of the best experiences while on board.

Ship Quality

Yes!! I never had any problems with getting to a popular place i loved the layout. And i never saw even one speck of dust!!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I loved my cabin. It was always kept in tip top shape! The bed was super comfy, there was more than enough space and there were three of us! The view from the balcony was always spectacular even in the middle of the ocean! The cabin overall was very welcoming and cozy!❤️

Ship tip

Not many things to do. Food wasn't that great and i had scheduled parasailing, but they cancelled it last minute because of the wind speed. Money was returned.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
Very beautiful if you have a chance to i suggest taking a trip to el malecon. I took am excursion to deer island where i did kayaking the instructors and staff were gret, very attentive, calm waters and it was an overall fun day. Although I wouldn't recommend this excursion to people under the drinking age because it won't be as fun.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
Great port but if you really want to see the beauties of jalisco i recommend going on a tour a little farther from port to really help you capture the culture. I did the signature dolphin seim amd it was SO MUCH FUN!!! The dolphins are well trained, staff is very friendly, and the food is incredible!!!!! Honestly and experience of a life time I definitely sugest you trying this excursion out you won't regret it!!!!

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
