South American Spectacular Aboard Carnival Cruises
Entranced by the services and scenery, Danielle Moore from Cruiseabout Auckland shares just what made her Carnival Cruises experience so memorable.
As there’s so much to see and do on board Carnival Splendor, it’s hard to summarise the many things which make this cruise ship so remarkable. Picture yourself on a mobile resort with the many facilities you’d expect a resort to have - swimming pools, spas, restaurants and outdoor leisure activities.
Now picture all of that plus a shopping mall, theatre room, movie house, casino, night clubbing rooms, an ice skating ring and much more all on one sea-going resort. Finding it all too hard to imagine? Well, for Carnival Splendor, that's exactly what is on offer for you.
Sit back, relax and begin your holiday with a delicious strawberry daiquiri (which will probably become one of your favourite drinks at sea). Be entertained by the many events happening throughout the day, from pool and deck parties, to live music, food buffet presentations and more.
Then the next day, if you didn't get a good night’s rest because of all the singing, dancing and live performances, there’s plenty of time to catch up on sleep during the day.
Lounge around the pool and work on your sun-kissed golden tan. Walk to the bar and order another round of strawberry daiquiris! Mix and mingle with like-minded people. Step outside your comfort zone and participate in entertaining games like karaoke or ‘best dance move’. Watch old time classic movies in the pool or savour a good read in the bubbling spa.
Along the way on South America cruises you can also enjoy shore excursions at some famous Central American ports. At Cabo San Lucas we hired jet skis to ride the beautiful turquoise waves and take in the beautiful scenery of the white stone coves.
We also saw the world differently and learned how the locals live in Puerto Vallarta. Walking the cobblestone alleyways we truly experienced this unique Mexican setting, as well as stopping at a local restaurant for some authentic traditional Mexican food.
Whatever you choose to do, get comfortable, make yourself at ease and just enjoy being on holiday! Immerse yourself in everything possible on board Carnival Splendor and you won’t be disappointed.
