Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by Lisajk

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Interior

Crew was fabulous and friendly. Cabin steward For room 1043 fantastic. Lee was so kind. Food not so great. Even the steakhouse upstairs very small

Portions, waitresses were snooty at steakhouse. Ship itself was easy to walk through and not too long at food lines. Shows were awesome. Comedians not so funny. Our one tour to stone Island beach was a big joke. Peddlers wouldn’t go away. We couldn’t even view beach. We thought it was a secluded spot. It was a cement venue building. Not enough chairs or loungers. Food was also so so. Not worth the money at all. After that tour we decided to not book another tour. Someone from carnival should actually go as a regular person and scope out these tours and get a true feel for these excursions. Pictures shown don’t reflect the true excursion. Also tour guides and tip jars everywhere. cruisers beware bring tons of tip money cause you will be bombarded. splendor ship needs some TLC by the pool areas and window washing. Couldn’t see out of windows at dining. Don’t play the 5000.00 bingo at end of trip. The catch is you have to get a coverall card in 49 numbers or less and when you don’t , they drop it to 500.00. Spa steam room and hot chairs didn’t work most of the cruise. Went to speak to front desk lady last Friday and she could care less. No where to sit in jacuzzi in spa. No seats and you had to hold on

To rails to hold yourself up. Our gold pearl waitresses were awesome

A venue of cement walls not a hotel restaurant or resort. Bombarded by peddlers all day couldnt even view the. Waves. Not enough loungers or chairs. Way too expensive for what you get. Food was so so. Drinks were watered down. Area was a bit sketchy
