Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by Christopher Giles
- Sail Date: May 2012
- Destination: Mexican Riviera
- Cabin Type: Cloud 9 Spa Suite
Our room itself was well appointed and very clean with a balcony to use. The entertainment staff were very good and the shows in the evening were excellent and very professional. You need to be fond of food on a cruise we found out as there can be food found some where on board 24hrs a day!. The main food area were the buffets during the day and two main restaurants in the evening. My most criticism was that the food was never hot!! although very well cooked. The weather going was good and also very good in the resorts but on the way back it was cold and a little rough so they had to put the cover over the main deck area. This did spoil the trip a little as we could not get out on deck to sunbathe but that is out of their hands.
Drink prices were not cheap and most of the treatments in the spa were quite expensive. If you want a treatment wait until the day you want it as they do have specials at a discounted rate!!
Our maid was fantastic and even after only 1 day she was calling us by our first names.
Overall a great experience but cruising is not for us as we found it a little restricted esspecially if you have no sun.
The room also had a safe but at no time did we feel that their would be anything to worry about.

Cabo San LucasWe were very impressed with this port. Great shopping and trips are available. The food at the marina was excellent and everywhere seemed very clean.View All 1,156 Cabo San Lucas Cruise Port Reviews

Puerto VallartaVery disappointed with this Port. We were looking forward to seeing Puerto Vallarta but we were back on board ship 4 hours before it sailed. Quite dirty compared to Cabo and not as nice walk around. It did not take us long as it is quite small.View All 838 Puerto Vallarta Cruise Port Reviews
