Carnival Splendor Cruise Review by ken89119
- Sail Date: July 2018
- Destination: Mexican Riviera
- Cabin Type: Balcony
It was super easy on embarkation day. We went to brunch in Long Beach before we got on and showed up at our pre-selected boarding time and pretty much walked right on to the ship. We had a balcony cabin and it felt pretty roomy with a couch next to the bed. We spent most nights in the piano bar singing along with Gary.
Two little hiccups that happened on the cruise. The first was in Cabo our excursion (we booked the sail and snorkel) got canceled (to many jelly fish in the area) and I did not here about it until we got off the ship, because it is tendered it would have been to difficult to go back to the ship right way to get different supplies. We still had a great time and going over to the beach and relaxing. Carnival refunded us so we booked another excursion in Puerto Vallarta which was the sunset sail. This was great right up until the transmission broke on the sail boat. Good thing we booked through carnival otherwise we would have been left in Puerto Vallarta.
Carnival handled both of them really well and we still love cursing Carnival.
Food wise the one thing I would skip is the sea day brunch. Everything was just a little over salted. I would stick with the lido breakfast. I will being doing this same route again in 2020 on the new Panorama so I loved all the crew and entertainment.

Sea days the pools were crowded but we could usually find spots. But the one thing I didn’t like was there is no pool on the adults only deck.
