Carnival Splendor, not splendid, AMAZING.
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
The Ship: The ship was beautiful, but the interior was surrounded by these ugly pink tiger stripes in circles, a little disappointment for the interior. The ship layout was perfect, More and the dining rooms were easy to find. The top decks were easy to locate the place you wanted to go, and the ship itself was smooth. One night we did hit some rough water, but nothing too bad. The ship was beautiful, like I said.
The Ports of call: We only did one port of call, and it was a little disappointing. It was called Stone Island Tour, and we went horseback riding. The horses were fun, but the beach was crowded by Mexicans always trying to sell you stuff. Out of guilty for them we lost 30 dollars, and they never stopped asking. We ate in a shack next to the beach, and the food there was great. Afterwords we went for a banana boat ride, which was fun. Then, we broke open a pinata and got free candy. The kids enjoyed it so much. Then we got off the island and back to the ship.
Fun Days At Sea: These days were the best in my opinion! There was always something to do around the ship, and there was never a time I was bored.
Entertainment: The shows on the ship were amazing and fun, especially the hypnotic show, were the hypnotized people and made them do funny stuff! The singing was great, and the shows were just plain fun!
Cabins:The cabin we got was a suite, after being upgraded from a ocean view, no fee!!! The room was always clean when we came back from having a blast on the ship. One time we returned to the steward cleaning the room and three kids watching him clean saying, "Jeez, look at the size of this Cabin!" We laughed.
Overall: Overall, the ship was amazing, clean, and fun! I am definatly going to cruise with Carnival in the Future! Less
