Charming ship, wonderful voyage, plenty of fun
Carnival Splendor Cruise Review to Mexico
Review summaryA big cheer to Leon, our Cruise Director. He was a great entertainment by himself. He very often kept the Carnival fun cruisin' along. My wife and I loved the charm of this ship. If someone is telling you that the Splendor is old and showing age, ignore them. We loved our Mexican Riviera cruise on the one and only Carnival Splendor.
Food and Dining
The Pinnacle Steakhouse
Paid extra. Not that memorable an experience. Took some leftover steak back to our cabin.
Grabbed a Reuben sandwich here while on Lido deck overlooking the sea.
The Gold Pearl Restaurant
Sale-day brunch was a delicious meal here.
The Coffee Shop
A place to grab a quick cup of Starbucks-like coffee for a reasonable price.
The Black Pearl Restaurant
Dining here was always a comfortable and nice experience with great service.
All the restaurants served delicious food with great service.
The Fun Shops
Found some great souvenirs at one of the shops.
Comfortable, but not that special, overall.
Ate some tasty Indian food.
Royal Flush Casino
A good place to hang out and have a smoke and a drink.
Spectacular Spectacular Main Lounge
Lots of seating. Easy to view the shows. Large stage and special effects made the shows interesting.
The Splendor Lobby and Atrium
Where all the fun could always be found. Frequent music by good bands. Activities were fun with Leon leading.
The Art Room
Great art to view and purchase. We purchased two paintings that we recently framed and hung in our house.
Always some fun and lots of music going on there.
