Cold ship but warm staff: Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by Nozzlehead
Overall Member Rating
Cold ship but warm staff
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
With a quick check in we made it onto the ship by noon. If you have issues with the color pink, this is not your ship. I could care less about the color, I do not take cruises to critique the interior decorating. We had a great balcony room, the ship had a great deck for lounging and of course cold intoxicating libations. The downside - The interior of the public areas, dining rooms, buffets and show room were More like meat lockers! Maybe it was my Arizona thin blood, but I will never take another cruise without some type of jacket.
Overall the food was fantastic in the dining room and pretty average in the buffet area. But the buffet line was always pretty short and had some great deserts.
As mentioned earlier staff was great on and off the ship. Our cabin steward was extremely friendly and always had a smile on his face even though he seemed to be working non stop.
The ports of Cabo and Puerto Vallarta were great fun, but for those who have never been to Mexico make sure you learn the No Gracias routine.
Great trip, good ship, fantastic professional personnel. Less
