Carnival Splendor cruises the Pacific Ocean in style, leaving from its home port of Los Angeles. This 952-foot-long cruise ship has plenty of room to stretch out, have fun and relax en route from Southern California to Cabo San Lucas or the Hawaiian islands. Elegance abounds throughout the ship—from the flat-screen TVs in the staterooms to the expansive spa and the always-fun piano bar.
With a capacity for just over 4,000 passengers and 1,150 crew members, Carnival Splendor first set sail in September 2008. Built in Italy—with passenger comfort and entertainment in mind—the ship features 13 decks with space that never feels crowded or overwhelming.
All 1,500 of the staterooms and suites have multiple closets, cozy beds and enough room to enjoy some down time. Most of the rooms have ocean views, but the interior rooms can be a great value for cheap vacation packages.
No matter which room you book, you’ll have access to all of the things to do on board the ship. Room service is available 24 hours a day, and the Lido Restaurant can hold up to 1,300 diners at a time, serving up a virtual globe’s worth of cuisine. Of course this is just the beginning of the dining scene.
Passengers need no worry about getting out their wallet after enjoying a late-night visit to the mojito bar or a special dining in the Black Pearl Dining Room. All-inclusive dining is just one of a perks of taking a cruise to Cabo San Lucas aboard the Carnival Splendor.
This list of activities is as long as it is fun. Before you arrive in Cabo, you’ll have the chance to soak in the sun, whether you’re looking for adventure, you want to relax or you’re combining the two.
Four swimming pools can be found aboard the Carnival Splendor, along with a 214-foot water slide and seven whirlpools. Other perks include Serenity, the adults-only retreat and kids’ programs so everyone can follow their bliss. WiFi access and in-room satellite TV can keep in touch with what’s happening back on land—it’s a snap to spend some time planning your shore excursion to Cabo and the Baja Peninsula.
