Carnival Splendor: Part 1 of 5

I went on a Carnival cruise for a week to Mexico. I will write 2 somewhat short posts and 3 longer posts. The short ones will be about days at sea and the longer ones will be about our days at port. Now: into the actual post.

We left our house at 11:30 and were at the terminal around 2:30. The boarding process was pretty easy. We just had to wait in line and show our passports. When we boarded, I was so confused about where everything was. We entered into the main lobby. Our family took an elevator to our rooms and walked down a long hallway to it. Our room was on deck 8. I didn’t know it at the time, but there were only a couple better spots for my needs. We were near the exit to the food. It was one story above us.

Our grandparents were on the cruise. They were 1 door down and across. We saw them after we finished unpacking. Our family went up to the Lido deck and ate some food. Our grandfather gave us a quick tour and we went to play mini golf on deck 14 (a.k.a. the Sky deck).

We just looked around the cruise ship in more areas after.

On the 2nd day, we ate breakfast. It was good. That’s all that needs to be said. Then we discovered the library. It had a bunch of games. We played Risk. My sister, Kate, didn’t like it, so she quit. Then, we played Sorry.


After that, we had lunch. I didn’t eat much because I wanted to go do more on the ship. Carnival had a Harry Potter trivia contest. Either I know more about Harry Potter than I thought or most people know less than I thought. I got 3rd place.

That was what happened during our first two days.
