Splendid Sailing Trip On The Splendor!
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
My husband & i drove into Long Beach from out of state & stayed at the Holiday Inn downtown they offered a great deal on a stay & sail package,which offered free shuttle service to & from Carnival along with free covered parking.Our room was great & so was the staff & service all at a very affordable rate i would highly recommend & stay with them again in the future.
Our shuttle got us to Carnivals port at a decent time we waited in a shady seated area for about 45 min's before being checked in by Carnivals staff,once we were checked in we went up to the Lido deck & lunch was ready for us which was really good. While eating lunch they were preparing our rooms & they were ready for us by 2pm which worked out great.
We had scheduled early dining which was in The Black Pearl,the menu,food & service was great we had an awesome waiter Reggie along with his team they had our section laughing & looking forward to seeing them every More night their dinner service was excellent.
We also enjoyed going to the comic shows & the shows that our cruise director Todd & his assistant Stephanie & other cruise staff members would put on,they were fun to watch & get in on like the quiz games or just whatever they were doing. = ) Todd was very helpful & thorough with all of his announcements with the passengers, which really helped newcomers like us. We also got to meet the Captain who was very friendly & he to was thorough with his announcements. Less

We had a balcony room on upper deck 6 and had a great room steward Sang he was very kind helpful & efficient in seeing to all of our needs. Our room was great the bed was a little harder then what i would have liked so we didn't care for that to much. We had plenty of room for our clothes & all i thought the closet space was pretty spacious. Our room was next to the elevators which i requested & i have to say i really didn't here to much noise or traffic all & all it was really a nice room.
