New Memories with my grandson. by MariaSValdez

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

We took this cruise for 2 reasons. My birthday, and his 8th grade graduation. There were to be 3 of us but my son died in January so it was only 2. We needed the time to heal, and bond.. We will do another cruise and probably with Carnivale but a different destination. We had a good time on board but I can honestly say, traveling with a child and not an adult you get a totality different perspestive on cruising.

Great cruise, but bad shore excusion by honmann

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

We went on a United Airlines endorsed shore excursion to the Riu Palace for the day. We got held up at the front desk because we didn't have a receipt that wasn't mailed to us. I did have a receipt for a deposit I made. They weren't going to let us in until I made a stink about it. At one of their restaurants, a certain dish was out and asked worker if they would be making more. A got a quick NO! It was an all day buffet and they weren't going to put out more food. Upon leaving we accidently left our IDs at the front desk. It was taken us more than 10 days to get an answer from the resort about sending the ID back, of which we provided a FEDEX number to mail. As of this writing, we still don't have our IDs. We paid $100+ each for this excursion plus transportation to get there (40 min drive), and in my opinion it was a waste. United Airlines should seriously look into this place before it continues to endorse. Also after I booked cruise, called United about suite upgrade offer.....they had no offer and was told to read fine print. While I enjoyed the Carnival cruise, I'll be hesitant to sign up thru United, which is my carrier of choice. But I guess I'll be contemplating that as well.

Our first cruise with our Grand Sons .. they had a BLAST !!!! by sammyvelvet

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

Carnival is a great cruise line if you are traveling with children. They have tons of stuff for all age groups of children and teens. We have done many cruises with all adults and this was our first with our Grand Sons. It was a different experience for us as we did this cruise around them. It was so much fun sharing the excitement with them. The highlights for them were the Dr. Seuss Green Eggs and Ham breakfast, The Dr Seuss Parade and show ... We have used many cruise lines and always seem to find the best value and most FUN on Carnival .

Don’t take a cruise from Long Beach! by mikl54620771

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

Do not take this cruise until Carnival gets more parking and better traffic flow for drop off and pick up of passengers.

Enjoyed first time cruise. by sakaeI

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

Enjoyed our first ride. Unfortunately we can’t go to Cabo San Lucas due to hurricane but received 100% credit for our future cruise which I felt customers were well treated with care, even by the weather reason. Totally different from airline companies.

Not so fun vacation with Hurricane Bud by Jenleb

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

Carnival did offer another cruise 100% comparable to what we spent so not all was lost and they did honor the credit which was already applied to a future trip and booked; we are super excited😉😬

Ship was blah. Entertainment crew was phenomenal by tmarden62

Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

The entertainment crew made this trip great. The ship itself was not worth the money but the fun squad made up for it.

Great cruise but because of our balcony cabin location, no sleep! by livesalesonline

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

Our cabins were located exactly underneath the galley for The Grill. The noise all day and all night was very very loud. Complaints to Guest Services brought assurances that they would, "talk to the food & beverage staff, manager etc." but day after day (including calls to guest services at 4:30am when the noise was worst), made no difference. They kept offering us free excursions which we rejected as we wanted to SLEEP! Finally toward the end of the trip they gave us an onboard credit and a certificate for 15% off a future cruise (??). We told them thank you but that it did not make up for a week without proper sleep (and we were traveling with a 3 year old). They apologized a lot but were unable to solve the issue. The noise was very loud, people dragging things across the floor and banging metal against metal. Also employees talking very loudly. Not a good cruise we were exhausted at the end!

Smooth embarkment, loved the ports, delicious food. The onboard steak house was fabulous. Very friendly staff. Only negative was the entertainment, different shows same boring entertainers. Fast smooth departure.

Amazing experience by Nate51

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

The cruise was great , the only thing I will like to change is that the Latin group perform in a designated room during the entire cruise...NOT at mid ship, that location is way to crowded. Logistically it's a nightmare location way to much traffic.

Older ship and loud decor, but still very enjoyable. by staat

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

The staff was exceptional, the food was very good. If you can overlook the pink decor and you want the ports of call, then this is the cruise for you.

What an excellent time by DennisAtencio

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Splendor / Destination: Mexico

This was my wifes first cruise and experience out of the USA and she loved it. We are not much drinkers but would suggest getting the drink package the next time to save a little. We liked the Duty Free Mall on the boat and took advantage of some of the booze buys to bring home and got lots of gifts for ones we thought of and really likes the Cruise Director Alex, he did a great job keeping us informed. We did meet the Captain and his staff and they were happy to see us.
