Montrose, California (PRWEB) April 22, 2009 - Twenty-
two Travel Professionals from Montrose Travel recently returned from a two-day preview cruise from Los Angeles aboard Carnival Cruise Lines' newest and largest ship, the 113,300-ton Carnival Splendor, which began year-round seven-day Mexican Riviera service from Long Beach, California, the beginning of April.
Montrose Travel's twenty-two Travel Professionals were among a select group of travel agents invited to experience the many on-board features of the new 3,006-passenger vessel.
"This was our opportunity to learn about one of the products we represent. First hand knowledge has been key to our ability to counsel and offer advice to our customers and it distinguishes us from other travel agencies. People really appreciate speaking to someone who has been where they are going", says Joe McClure, President.
The cruise provided the Montrose Travel with a first-hand look at the Carnival Splendor's wide array of dining, activity and entertainment options, including a 21,000-square-foot Cloud 9 Spa - Carnival's largest - four restaurants, 22 bars and lounges, four swimming pools, and Carnival's Seaside Theatre, a 270-square-foot outdoor LED screen displaying movies, concerts and other programming. Carnival Splendor also houses the largest children's facilities in the Carnival fleet.
Carnival Splendor has launched a year-round schedule of weeklong cruises to the popular Mexican destinations of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas beginning April 5, 2009. Carnival Splendor is the line's largest ship ever deployed on the West Coast.
