Review of Royal Caribbean Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Splendour of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 21, 2014


I had a great time on the cruise.  Unfortunately, I had a bout of gastrointestinal problems midway through the cruise, and it caused me to miss an excursion I paid for and several meals.  Despite this issue, I still had a great time visiting places I have never been.  I flet that I had enough time in the ports of call to explore the areas nearby.  The crew was excellent: friendly, helpful, and dedicated to making my experience an enjoyable one.

Cruise only recommended for those fluent in Portuguese

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Splendour of the Seas | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


I wanted to let you know how disappointed my grandma and I were our cruise experience.  First and foremost, while we were in line to check in for the cruise, we were alerted to a $160/person reciprocity fee that we were required to pre-pay for entrance into Argentina.  Since this was the very first I heard of this, you can imagine my shock and disappointment.  You had let us know of the Brazilian Visa required (costing $160/person) and I had seen that for myself on the Royal Caribbean website, however, there was never any mention of the fee for Argentina as well.  Our only option at the point in time that we learned about it, was to pay or not board the ship.  Needless to say, we paid the fee ($320 total).  As a travel agency service, I think it your responsibility to disclose and clarify any documents we would need to take this cruise so we had all the information upfront and could make a judgment call on whether or not it was worth it to spend all this extra money to take this cruise.  I would like to know if there is any way you plan to rectify this unfortunate situation.

 

Next, I did receive an email 10 days after I booked this trip, that the cruise was going to be a "culturally enriching experience", there was nothing in that email or on the Royal Caribbean website that led me to believe over 95% of the people on the ship, along with all of the entertainment would be in Portuguese.  If the description was more clear, I would have been concerned - knowing that we would not be able to speak to anyone or really enjoy any of the entertainment.  However, everything I read made me believe it would not be a concern and that there would be plenty of English spoken on board.  That was not the case at all.  The time of dinner even changed to accommodate the Portuguese passengers, which was not discussed on the Royal Caribbean website.  Anytime dining begins at 6:30 and my grandma was already pushing it with how late she wanted to eat.  We quickly found out on the ship, that dinner would actually not start until 7:30 anywhere - dining room or buffet - because that is more standard to Brazilian dinner time.  Again, information that should have been available prior to booking.

 

Finally, as part of my booking deal, you had said that we would get a $75 credit on any Seapass charges.  There was no discount taken off either of our accounts.  I'm happy to contact Royal Caribbean about this as well, but figured I would address it with you first, as it had been part of my booking deal with Cruises Only.

Good Cruise, extra required costs for US travelers for tourist visa for Brazil and reciprocity fee for Argentina

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Splendour of the Seas | Sail Date: Jan 26, 2014


Decent cruise, I am from the USA I was disappointed that Royal Caribbean did not tell us that a $160 per person tourist visa was required just to board the plane to fly to Brazil.  We also had a $160 per person reciprocity fee for Argentina, we found this out at the port.  The cruise staff was awesome as usual.  Only about 28 out of 2000 passengers spoke English but most of the cruise staff spoke English so language wasn't a barrier at all.  We were able to take all of our excursions with an English speaking tour guide.  Mostly Brazilian passengers and they were very friendly.  I didn't like waiting in line to enter the Windjammer cafe, this is the first time I have ever experienced lines for meals on a cruise.  The food was a 6 out of 10, like eating at Ryan's or Golden Corral buffet for a week, even in the fancier dining rooms.  The food was not bad but not great.  Overall this was an easy affordable way to explore several South American countries.  I would recommend this cruise to others

From checking in to checking out.

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Splendour of the Seas | Sail Date: Jun 08, 2013


Everything about the cruise it self was great. Checking in at the port in Venice on the morning of 8th June was quite comfortable and impressive. I note the efficiency and friendliness of the staff members. Then getting on board was a new experience. the friendly and helpful staff members, then the lunch on the first day., and off course the meals just got better as the days went by. The services at the meal halls were fantastic. The ship was most comfortable, and sailing was smooth from beginning to end. The entire organisation on board was just great and I take note of Excellence in planning, organisation, communication, training of staff members in all areas, time management, and off course, leadership. These are all very important for the success of any organisation. The Entertainment was well planned and great, never a boring moment, so much to do. The wife and husband team with their drummer and Piano player were just great, for they provide play back songs as well as recent ones. The crowd control and discipline, even amongst the people ( travellers) were off a high standard. This cruise was like a big city with all comforts moving on the seas, yet still you can hardly think that you are moving on the seas.

12 Tips for Splendour of the Seas

During the sea days , go to the main dining room for lunch and enjoy the great salad bar.

Wash your hands!!

try go where the passengers are not e.g. - early on deck

The best recommendation I can give is that I will be back next year

Book your "my time" dining ahead,by phoning , or you dont get the exact times you want. You can choose to dine alone or with others. Ask for your bottle of wine to be brought back to you the next night...cheaper that way. Mix your own recipe of free soft drinks, i concocted black tea and lemonade.

Check upper decks for access to the internet. Note that the ATM on deck 5 dispenses Euros while the ATM in the casino dispenses US dollars. Remember to check in large baggage on the dock before in processing.

Park cafe great for quiet breakfast.

YOU SHOULD NOT CHARGE FOR FRESH ORANGE JUICE WHEN YOU BUY THE MOST EXPENSIVE PACKAGES ON DRINKS.

Nice, clean and spacious.

Wind Jammer for meals any time for variety. However, Excellent service, at the King and I.

There are no "lines" for The Windjammer Cafe; it's shear chaos and man-eat-man....good manners are not well taught, apparently.

Nice activity and entertainment
