Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by Buck Turgidson

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

We like to sail out of SoCal so we got a balcony on deck 8 below lido deck (bad choice, massive chair dragging well into the night). Balcony was nice except for noise

Food was very good, I've been on many other lines and their food was on par with others, Cunard, Princess, HAL. We ate in no specialty restaurant's.

BBQ restaurant was good as was the deli where I liked the buffalo chicken sandwich. Hamburgers were also very good.

Dinners and service in MDR were great and breakfast was good in MDR. scrambled eggs in Lido were a little fluid.

Cakes were great

More lively with a younger crowd, on HAL I get run over with scooters, on Carnival it's children.

I did not like the deck layout, no walk around Promenade deck.

Entertainment was not that good. Princess much better

Good fitness center, they have a rower .

Our one excursion was a zodiac looking for whales, great fun found a mama and baby whales
