Carnival Splendor

The 3,006-passenger Carnival Splendor departed the Port of Long Beach, Calif., yesterday on a seven-day cruise to the Mexican Riviera, marking the resumption of cruises to Mexico on Carnival's newest and largest ship.

On this route, Carnival Splendor visits three of the Mexican Riviera’s most popular ports of call:  Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas, each of which is known for its excellent beaches and watersports, as well as outstanding shopping and dining opportunities.

The 113,300-ton Carnival Splendor began service from Long Beach in April of this year and operates weekly round-trip cruises departing every Sunday.
