I thought this would be a nice cruise considering the ship was new and I really enjoyed my last Mexican Riviera Cruise on Royal Caribbean. ( Yes it was a long time ago) The ship is new and this was it's second voyage and that's where the fun ends. Honestly the best part of this cruise was going ashore at the 3 stops. The problem started right from the beginning, 4 room keys were left at ...

We chose this cruise because we cruise with carnival in the past and really enjoyed the experience we’ve had. We knew that this was going to be the inaugural cruise for the panorama and we’re super excited to get on board with a balcony room. Our experience all started off with our luggage being delivered and having a Broken shoulder strap caused by the luggage delivery service that carnival ...

As an experienced travel agent I had not sailed with Carnival since 1989. We decided to try again, much to our dismay. There was nothing except the steak house to commend this cruise. The dining service was in some cases energetic but without adequate training poorly provided. The food was of poor quality. The music sources all had bass turned up so much above the rest of the music that all ...

Affordable worth it price. I miss the tropical beach weather so we decided to do the 7 day cruise in mexico. A day in every port wasn't enough! There's so much things to do. During sea day we were able to do a lot of stuff although I must say there's isn't much for couples. Sea day would be so much if we're traveling with family or friends. Only elegant dinner, spa and pool lounge was enjoyable ...

This ship is old and needs to be updated. Cabin on the Riviera Deck was dirty and dusty. We found a pair of shoes in the closet from a previous cruiser. Empty plastic shopping bags in drawers. Beds were very uncomfortable and felt like air mattresses. There were lights in the room that were out and not replaced. The TV is tiny and everything looked green. The decor is old and gaudy. The food was ...

I am glad this was not my first cruise because it would of been my last! The cleaning crew ( if that is what you want to call them) DID NOT CLEAN ... I got dirty towels hung like they where clean ( lip stick and other makeup on them - you could see lip prints) I have been on this ship before and did not have this bad of a time. The main steward was a joke... rude and unfriendly (they could not ...

Worst Vacation Experience

The Carnival Splendor was the worst vacation I have had. The food was the worst no taste, cold and the only thing that was edibles were the things the kitchen didn't cook (Ice Cream, salad bar). Pre-Paying for the tips was a mistake they did not deserve the tips they got. Our room steward didn't clean the room 3 days of the 7-day cruise, we were in a spa room and it took 2 days to get the robes ...

I've cruised many times before, but it had been many years since the last one, so I figured this was an excellent one to try. I was a Carnival fan, it had a great price on this cruise out of a port I could drive to, and I love the Mexican Riviera. Oh, and it left on my birthday - match made in heaven. Embarkation went smooth. Parking was easy, although there were employees helping direct ...
