Ship Facts: Carnival Splendor Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Splendor Deck Plans
A week in the sunshine!!
7 days on the Carnival Splendor and we were delighted with both the ship and the service. Our group of 6 (1 25th anniversary couple, 1 honeymooning couple and 2 single ladies) had a fabulous time. We really enjoyed Puerto Vallarta (Zip line, Jeep Adventure and Tequila tour), skipped Mazatlan and stayed on the ship but Cabo San Lucas was the absolute best ever!!! As a group we did the Land's End Boat, Beach & Shopping tour. It was worth double the $60 per person price.

The service on the Splendor was the best we have ever had (this was our 5th cruise) and this was due to Captain Pagano, Cruise Director Goose Neumann & their staff. Amazing!! As my 20 yr old daughter said, "I would book a cruise just because Goose was the cruise director! He loves what he does and it shows!" We will take this trip again just to be able to visit PV and Cabo again and do more activities.

The cabins were interior (2) and one balcony. Our room was quite clean except for the last day. The honeymooners were very unpleased with their cleaning staff. We do have to say that dinner in the Gold Pearl dining room was spectacular especially because of Antonio our waiter. He was spot on from the first minute we sat down. He was everything we have come to expect from Carnival and so much more. The other staff were friendly, attentive, caring, looked you in the eye, and generally seemed to love what they were doing. It was a happy boat, both passengers and staff, and it made for a fabulous vacation! Thank you, Carnival Splendor!!!
